Reason for Optimism in a Pessimistic Time

Life is Still Good

Great video here, especially relevant in our time.  Echo chambers enabled by social media and quick dopamine hits to reinforce out pre-existing notions is rampant today.  The ability to step back and look at facts is more important than ever.  Things are pretty damn good.  I don’t discount the fact that the stakes might be higher, with wider consequences in the globalized world we live in today.  Nuclear winter could change things pretty quick, but we should look at our lives in a broader context of history.  There are reasons to appreciate the society that many before us have built and the fact that it allows us a level of comfort never before seen.

Don’t let any political ideology make you feel like a victim of society, incapable of appreciating the world that we all share today.
