From Future Crunch:
Our goal isn’t to try convince you to take one side over the other in a debate about optimism and pessimism – the world is far too muddled for that. Instead, it’s to remind you that away from the headlines, millions of people from every corner of the planet did their best to solve the problems that could be solved, and stayed open-eyed and open-hearted even in the most difficult of circumstances.
After the countless hours we all spent collectively focused on everything bad, mad and sad in 2022, perhaps it’s worth spending half an hour learning about what humanity did achieve? You might just find yourself pleasantly surprised. We know we were.
