How (And Why) You Should Be Happier About The World, by Paul Armstrong
The world can seem like it’s circling the drain sometimes. People are self-obsessed, are angrier, political unrest, natural and human-made disasters, humanity seems to be going backwards, oh and we’re sleep-shopping (no, really, it’s a thing). It turns out it’s not as bad as you think but what you read (and subsequently think) matters. What’s going on? It has never been more critical (and easy) to have the facts and see the bigger picture.
There are lots of reasons to be happy and confident about the future. Globally speaking, we’ve never been in such good shape economically. The world’s GDP has multiplied 100-fold in the last 200 years. As a species, we’re more prosperous and productive than any time in history.
Protecting what goes into the grey matter between your ears means what comes out of your mouth (or perhaps onto the page) is likely to be better quality than if you stay on the surface or try to absorb everything. Stop reading everything, take your news diet seriously and commit to expanding your view. Good luck.
