In the negative

We are living in the most technologically advanced period in human history.

We’re so accustomed to this utopia that the only thing worth talking about is how shitty everything (supposedly) is. Social media is making us all narcissists, capitalism is making us fat and greedy, plastic straws are killing the planet, Dave Chappelle is the new Hitler, etc.

Go on Twitter and say something positive about capitalism. Say that capitalism seems to be the only economic system which brings about massive technological progress which hundreds of millions of people benefit from. Without fail, as a rule, some shmuck will respond with a But What About…!

But what about…gratitude for how good we have it? Why is that so hard?
