Lots of things are looking really bad right now, climate change, a political shift to the right, capitalism continuing to make people's lives suck the world over, and it's really worrying to me, especially as an 18 year old. I keep returning mentally to the possibility that I could literally witness the end of humanity in my lifetime (climate change being probably the scariest thing), and it's kind of making me miserable. Memes and friends and tea are all great and I certainly have a fine life, all things considered, but I can't shake this niggling thought that we're all doomed.
Are any of you optimists about the future? Do you think the world could be okay someday? If so, why? I'm really wanting something to believe in.
