Overall, I think this essay is too pessimistic (see recommendation 1 and the quote at the very end of the newsletter). Still, these quotes hit home:

  • We increasingly respond practically to the world without even attempting to make sense of it.
  • We’ve given up on the prospect of actually solving or managing most of the snowballing global problems and crises we’re hurtling towards
  • We’ve accepted that some large fraction of those problems will go unsolved and unmanaged, and result in a drastic but unevenly distributed reduction in quality of life for most of humanity over the next few decades
