Long-Term Future

The Long-Term Fu­ture tag is meant for dis­cus­sion of what the long-term fu­ture might ac­tu­ally look like. This doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily over­lap with the Longter­mism (Philos­o­phy) tag, be­cause a post at­tempt­ing to e.g. model the fu­ture of space travel won’t nec­es­sar­ily dis­cuss the philo­soph­i­cal im­pli­ca­tions of its model.
