So, What's Something That's GOOD That's Happening?

Looking at the browse tab, I see some petty depressing stuff - anyone have something good in life?

There is good everywhere but what makes headlines is shocking things and shock comes from negative emotions leading to outrage.

Very few people will grab up a newspaper or purchase a monthly subscription to an e-newsletter if it told them how good others have it. They want to feel happy for not being that person not feel jealous of them.

GoodListener -

Good point. I've never really thought of it that way.

Trump is impeaching himself. It's amazing. He's basically confessed to obstruction of justice.

We live in the most peaceful time in human history, global poverty has never been so low, food production is at an all time high. Off the top of my head

Are you familiar with Steven Pinker's "Better Angles of Our Nature"? And if so, do you tend to agree with Pinker on this topic (based on what you just stated here and elsewhere, it would appear that you do)?

Also, are familiar with Peter Diamandis book/TED talk "Abundance"? If so, what are your thoughts?

I’m not familiar with any of what you mentioned, I’ll likely check. There’s a book called “The Rational Optimist” by Matt Ridley that I read a few years back. I think that’s where I got my ideas. That and a Stuff You Should Know podcast.
