No, think about it.

As a whole, societies and their citizens are doing better than ever before.

Poverty and starvation levels are lower than all of history.

Many people have access to healthcare to varying degrees.

Internet access to knowledge is spreading globally.

Overall, this and the future are the best times for humans to be alive, for now.

Will it remain that way? Who knows, but for now: it's better.

Besides, those youngest people always joke about how death is best..... and nobody makes it out of here alive.

I don't know about you, but I like clean drinking water, hygiene products, vaccines, and the internet.


Castrosbeard t1_izkqbe5 wrote

You could have said something similar in spirit right before one of the world wars you know. And shit, one in four people don't even HAVE access to the clean drinking water you just mentioned. There's a looming climate catastrophe that threatens to kill billions within our lifetime. Things may yet get better, but it isn't a given


Dengareedo t1_izkvcxp wrote

One in four is better than three in four

Threatening to kill is different to it happening

It’s also not set in stone to be terrible , sure bad things will happen but everything about the future is just a guess

Well, how about looking at it this way. We usually tend to think about the past, what we lost, mistakes we made, things we aren't proud of, etc., and this quote rather suggests that focusing and thinking about the future is better than keep presenting the past, and things would definitely get better if you worked for it.

Trips-Over-Tail t1_izkezra wrote

The whole issue it that it won't be falling from the sky in the manner we're used to. Plenty of places will dry up entirely, as California already is. Many places with an abundance of it will be flooding regularly. Agriculture will be tapping everything that it can. If you really are in a place that will remain stable and maintain consistent access to untainted water, we'll, how many people can your well serve? Because in that case you are where the refugees in your own country will be headed.

Furthermore, should things get that serious... The idea that you legally own the water that falls or otherwise gathers on your property, or that you will even remain the sole legal owner of such valuable land, is one that can be changed very easily by a thirsty population or desperate government. Not only that, wells represent the tapping of an areas water table. Any one can do that, and there are far more efficient ways to suck out the water table until it sinks out of reach. When water is that valuable and you have it, you'd better believe the water companies can and will drain you dry.

All of the norms that you rely on as the foundation of your way of life are subject to change, at the hands of nature and person alike. All of them.


ValyrianJedi t1_izkj20j wrote

I'm sorry buy you are just blowing scenarios far out of proportion to the extent that virtually no experts are claiming that what you are will happen, to the point that there really isn't even any point trying to respond to it...

No this sub is full of miserable people who come into the comments and shit on any positive message posted.

The sub called Get Motivated. Why are you and everyone else here then?

The unpopular opinion is that we can’t control what happens to us, but we can control our reactions. All I see in here are a bunch of people with shitty attitudes, and a shitty attitude is no one’s fault but your own.

I get it, life can suck. Many have been unjustly traumatized, abused, and neglected. I certainly have. But no matter how bad things are, you can turn your life around. It just takes an investment in yourself that must be nurtured consistently. Every single day try to get just a little bit better at something. Then one day you’ll wake up and realize you’re good at it. But it can take YEARS. The good news is that it’s almost never too late.


Castrosbeard t1_izks66t wrote

Personal investment? Work? But according to the OP's image what's coming is going to better anyway, so may as well not waste the effort.


ComeFromTheWater t1_izkuuhp wrote

Working on yourself. Eating better, exercising, pursuing a passion. Developing a skill. Reading. Watching less TV and spending less time playing video games. Getting involved in your community.

Yes, work sucks, and we’re all tired, but the hardest part is starting, and the second hardest part is being consistent.

Cant wait for my body to get more aches and pains while global problems that will affect the rest of my life continues to worsen.

Why does 0.1% of Americans have more than the bottom 90% of Americans. Ignorance is bliss.


[deleted] t1_izkd0qp wrote

Keep crying about things you couldn’t help even if you dedicated your life to helping them, that’s a miserable existence. More and more people are pulled out of poverty, given clean drinking water, given access to proper nutrition, and given access to proper education every year, really easy to look at all the global negatives in the world but things have only gotten better and will continue to get better, that is a fact, not an opinion


Crazy95jack t1_izke22l wrote

Helping other is the most satisfying existence anyone could ever experience. Since covid started more people have been dragged back down into poverty, unable to heat their homes without going hungry. Huge numbers of workers striking due to pay and working conditions. All it takes is the likes of Putin releasing nuclear weapons and life for us and our children's children would be miserable. You don't speak fact but words of blind hope. Nothing in the future is guaranteed, thats a fact.


[deleted] t1_izkeqfy wrote

And how many people have you helped? I’m willing to guess none, the people that complain the most do the least. I donate to charities frequently and work in my community’s local soup kitchen and I see the effects of my work. So keep being miserable, I’d rather think like me than you any day

Maybe. I guess I'd rather know what really the deal is, since everyone has their own interpreation (and you barely find any modern art, where those fears are not expressed). Instead of processing all of that, the most motivating thing would probably reducing all of that to whatever shit we're really dealing with and then workikg exactly on that. No more speculating, no "new times, new world" metaphors. As good as the intention might be, there still this gut feeling that it's just a little piece of what should be talked about.


jnemesh t1_izjzadv wrote

Yeah, no. We can HOPE this is the case, but we really don't know. We could be at war with China at any time now. We could have something happen with Russia. We could have some unforeseen pandemic emerge. We could have a natural disaster.

Point being, while it IS a nice thought to think the future will be better than the past, this is FAR from guaranteed, and there's another saying, "The past is prologue." Or, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch"!

I can move to the mountains which I has always been my dream and I can find out who I am as a woman, not a wife, mom, nurse, the domestic engineer of 3 other people has been lifted since the kids are going to be living their own lives! The marriage is ending, but we will take care of our girls and my career path is opening up due up a recent masters degree in public health nursing.

And one from scripture, king Solomon,

For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.

  • Ecclesiastes 9:4

This is why I like the rhythm of work, gym, church, for there is benefits in all three, with work, you collaborate with your boss and coworkers, increasing productivity and your finances, via good friendships, and with the gym, you team up with your brotherhood, collaborating on health and improving your body, strengthening it, and tuning it for longevity and athleticism, and with church, you pray and meditate with the fellowship, your pastors and church goers, studying scripture, encouraging each other and baring each other’s burdens and woes, and seeking the higher power.

Work, gym, church.

Friendship, brotherhood, friendship.

Pragmatic, practical and mystical.

Mind, body and spirit.

Keep going friends. Life is fight, it is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to live.

I guess the hardest part about faith is looking past the current circumstances and actually believing the best is yet to come. It's possible, but trying to convince my mind that despite all the sh&* things are not only going to get better but be much better than before.

Everyday I wake up & have to tell myself multiple times over and over that everything's going to be ok, but just saying it or even reading it doesn't help always. Somehow you have to believe it beyond a shadow of a doubt because the slightest doubt will derail all the positive self talk in the world.
