Q: Are you optimistic about the future of humanity?
A: I am optimistic about the future of humanity because I refuse to be pessimistic. Humanity has overcome everything from the ice age to the black death, not to mention attempted wars, genocides, and a plethora of other things that would be nice to learn how to avoid. None of them have destroyed us entirely, and many of them have made us stronger. I don’t know how we’ll overcome our current problems, what the next round of problems will be, or what humanity will look like after. I do, however, fully believe that we will survive and continue.
