No you're not. You're conveniently forgetting about all social achievements in our history, focusing only on the negative things. You don't even care about seing the glass half empty or half full, you see it empty, when it's clearly not. That's the very definition of cynism.


What does it mean to you to see the glass as empty? How to treat the glass is a subjective matter. I'm going with the empirical.

I can appreciate technological progress without believing it is the salvation of humanity. What does it take to believe in salvation?

Social achievements, social disasters. You're going to take the thick with the thin.
