the good life in a digital age

cautious optimism

In Remember the Future Jeremy Adam Smith attempts to debunk the idea that “we’re getting dumber, society is disintegrating, and the world is becoming more dangerous”.

Not a great surprise from Greater Good, a center committed to ‘scientific understanding of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior’.

(The Sopranos seems to be the universal optimists defence. Steven Johnson also used the programme to undermine the doomsayers in Everything Bad is Good for You )
