The greatest boxer to ever live, Mohammad Ali was absolutely correct about bragging. It is also correct that it ain’t negative if it is right. Just because someone has a pessimistic world view the question isn’t whether a person is an optimist or a pessimist but rather what facts they have that supports their own world view. Does being an optimist always make you right? Does being a pessimist always make you wrong?
After 2000 years of calling all the shots in the world the white male monopoly is in a permanent decline. In the West this is not all bad, however they are increasingly being replaced by men of color from the East. Will the Xi’s and the Modi’s do a better job of calling the shot’s in the world? Unfortunately both The League of Nations and the UN have been failures so which facts suggest having an optimistic world view?
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
