On The Percieved Lack of Progress

I've seen several places lamenting the fact that  Blade Runner was set in November of 2019 and we haven't achieved the milestones presented in the film.

Oh Please:

Paraphrasing Lowther, It's true we don't have flying cars, but L.A. is a festering third world disease ridden hell hole. Technology focused Mega Corporations have bribed the powers that be and use their products like a jack boot on the throat of humanity.  The outlook for the individual is bleak despite impressive economic growth and while Mr.Musk's Mars plans are are 5-10 years in the future, a number of people DO look at them longingly for a better life (or at least a more rewarding one) in the off-world colonies. Intimately tied to why people might look at a spartan,tenuous and perilous existence working to hew from the bareness of of Utopia-Planatia, Occator or Rheasilvia, homes for future generations is that there are are now beings among us who look human but are childlike in many ways, have pre-programed violent emotional responses to certain phrases and are a fairly dangerous and worrisome addition to society.  

So really the differences come down to no flying cars and artistic license in that the SJWs don't look like Rutger Hauer or Daryl Hannah.

1 Does that mean it's open season to "retire" SJWs?

Self defense is allowed but one must not become the monsters one is fighting.

'Cause then there is no point.

3 I am not certain where this idea of an open season is coming from, but I caution everyone to follow proper conservation practices.  Please leave enough for breeding purposes.  Think of the future generations.

4 True, it is necessary to keep samples of them for research purposes, like smallpox.  In fact, that is how we should keep samples of them.

5 Are you SURE Daryl Hannah isn't an SJW?

6 I sit corrected.

7 Doubling down on retirement.  No-one needs SJWs and CRISPR Catgirls > Daryl Hannah.
