    I think you are overly optimistic.

      Few people today would advocate for slavery or dueling.

      There have been significant changes in culture over time, we just don't tend to live long enough to notice all of them.  It's also frustrating that we're still struggling with slavery and animal cruelty, but at least those practices can only continue insofar as they're being hidden.

      Back in the day, this comic was controversial and almost didn't get published.  I don't exactly have much hopes for tomorrow, or even 10 years from today, but 200 years, or 10 centuries, when everyone that matters to me (or ever will matter to me) are gone, I have a general confidence that what will go on will be better.
