As we all let Holiday dinners settle this week, and after the holiday cocktails begin delivering the desired effect, eventually old Uncle Morty will start pontificating about every thing that is wrong in America. Everyone’s got that one Uncle (or aunt, grandfather, brother-in-law, etc).
The undisputed fact is that life on Planet Earth has never been better. In fact, it gets better every year. Are there problems? Are there people at the short end of the stick? Of course. Humankind will never achieve perfection. There is no such thing. But the undeniable fact is that life and mankind is getting better, on the whole, for everyone.
What hurts my heart is people who actively hate on people and persons who are doing amazing things to advance progress in our world. The hatred in some circles for people like Elon Musk is so asinine.
It’s a sickness.
Too many people take their frustrations in their own lives out on the people and companies actively making efforts to advance mankind. It’s pathetic and sad.
Don’t hate because you can’t create. https://t.co/YFvIQkIxyi

When someone gets on their soapbox this holiday season about how “Trump” or “the Democrats” or “Capitalists” or “Socialists” or “The Illuminati” or whatever are going to ruin everything, just keep this 100-year chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average in mind:
Happy Holidays everyone. The world gets better every day, and so do you. Don’t ever forget that.
