Climate change. Job shortages. Having to

Read 'Progress' by Johan Norberg. Links below.

Arguably, in many ways, this is the best time to be alive. Nevertheless, keep fighting, keep speaking up - maybe you can help to change the world into what you wish for it to be like.

On a personal level, things will get better. It will take time.

All the best. Take care of yourself. And if in UK - grab some sleep if possible.

There were job shortages a couple of decades ago too. As well as other things like diseases being rife, not having the advanced medicine and technology we have now and having a lot less acceptance than we do now. It does still suck now but I doubt it was any better by in the day. People died younger for a reason.

Haha I don't usually stay up that late.

That book brought up some things that I wouldn't have considered thx

Crime, war, and racial tension are down across the board, by all accounts we are living in the most peaceful time that has ever existed.

We simply live in the information age, so all the bad things that are happening are suddenly available to us to view at our fingertips.


Perhaps I'm just pessismistic in general but I still can't think of how the world's getting better.

Perhaps it is my observation of the stubborness of ourselves, resistant to change, leading to making things worse for ourselves.

But then again if I don't make enough effort to try to change what I see , I'm part of the problem.
