A comforting thought

You know sometimes you look at the world and it all seems to be going straight to hell. People seem to get meaner and dumber, every stupid idea spreads like wildfire while gems of wisdom are forgotten moments after they’re mentioned. An endless tumble towards chaos with the complete downfall of civilization as its only end.

But you know, it’s not all bad. For example, the trend of diddling the theater screen with a laser pointer seems to have gone away.

Why that one thing, I can’t imagine. But I’ll take it.

    • Hey, I like that. I’ve long had a feeling that what he is saying was true… that considering how much peace I experience wherever I go my perception (and perhaps the general perception) of a violent world is overblown. It’s not to diminish the tragedy that is very real, but rather to appreciate how far we’ve come.

      Though my example of the laser pointer was a bit flip, in fact I think it is an odd representation that positive social change can happen without centralized force or education. People can actually figure out that something is stupid.

      Anyways, thanks for the Pinker. I was unaware.
