Before we begin, let’s first consider a key question to understand this book. Do you think the world is going to get better or worse in the future?

If you ask them why such a negative perspective of the future, many will most likely cite the endless negative news about the destructions caused by environmental pollution, violent crimes, plane crashes, road accidents, new diseases as evidence that a darker future is on the way.
