A Much Better World

"New Serenity" does not mean that we smile and hold hands all the time. No no, don't worry, in 2038, we are still arguing. Sometimes we're even yelling at each other. We also fight. There are still bad people around, but, and this is crucial: we look much more optimistically into the future. And, unlike 10 or 15 years ago, we are not constantly afraid that the world will end next month. 

The New Serenity is contagious but healthy at the same time. No joke. It’s like E.Glen Weyl said recently: "It's like in Star Trek. People are still messed up and imperfect and all sorts of bad things happen. But it's also clearly a much better world. In some pretty profound and radical ways. But there's no sense in which we've reached anything like Nirvana."

How we got to this New Serenity? Come watch!
