Shaping the Future
Renowned linguist, author, professor and social activist Noam Chomsky makes the case for optimism. As he describes,
Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it’s unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume that there’s no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there’s a chance you may contribute to making a better world. The choice is yours.”
Below I’ve included a recent video of professor Chomsky discussing the current threats to our planet and what we can do about it.
