This idea began with a question posed by a reader of a previous blog. I like the idea so much that I want to  post it as a new blog. 

Looking backward we can wonder how anyone could have justified slavery or not granting equal rights to women, but plenty of smart and good people thought that these were justified. There are other examples where we scratch our heads and wonder at the moral opacity of our ancestors.

But what about us? Where will the future find us morally wanting?

Here is my list of what the future will find immoral. It will be really interesting to see what others add to it.

Eating animals that feel pain

Executing people

Physically punishing children

Machines that create noise

Earning an excessive amount more than the average person

Forcing people to choose between work and family
