A pessimistic viewpoint is so easy to make, just go ahead and watch some news channels. A sane person can genuinely become depressed if he watches news channels daily (I am talking about the situation in India).
I often ask myself what role I can play in this grand scheme of things, where every content in the media is going for catching more and more eyeballs( no wonder that they go for the craziest shit that would fetch them the maximum views)
As a consumer, we just consume and consume, without taking a breath. From the time we wake up till the time we go bed , we consume whatever is thrown at us.
I consider myself aware , in a sense that at least I know that this much consumption is bad for me, then I think about people who are not even aware of their situation.
The point I am trying to make here is that there’s still good out there, and I would rather be optimistic and wrong than pessimistic and right.
