Worth Watching: Being an Eternal Optimist

The world today can be especially distressing, considering all the economic turmoil and ongoing global conflicts. But we’ve more reasons than ever before to be hopeful, if we just take a moment to reflect.

Global poverty is at an all time low. War deaths are the lowest in modern human history. Technology is moving ahead faster than ever before bringing us the cheap, effective solutions we need to solve most of the world’s problems.

A decade or two could be all it takes to transform ourselves into an advanced species, having ended all wars, eradicated poverty, and overcome the limitations of our biological tyranny.

But don’t just take my word for it. Watch as proponent of social justice and equity Angela Blackwell and veteran journalist Bill Moyers discuss the state of modern events and why it is entirely logical to be more optimistic with each passing day.
