💡 David Deutsch: Optimism, Pessimism and Cynicism

With so much progress in the world, how can pessimism still be widespread? It is because of cynicism, denying that “so-called-progress” is progress, argues David Deutsch, professor at Oxford University and one of the world's leading intellectuals on optimism.

This is what we at Warp News believe and that the
best way to solve problems is to have a
fact-based optimistic view.

You need facts to see the world as it is, the
problems and the opportunities.

You need optimism to dream of a better
world
and find the determination to create it.

We are building a global community
of fact-based optimists

Why don’t you join us?

One year of Premium Supporter for only $25 (regular price $100).



The offer ends on February 27.

Our surveys show that 80 percent are completely wrong about when electric cars will outsell petrol cars. The most common answer is that it will NEVER happen.

29%

Mathias Sundin — The Angry Optimist

Co-founder & CEO of Warp News

Co-founder & Executive Chairman of the Warp Institute Foundation

Mathias used to be a Member of Parliament, but choose not to run for reelection in 2018, because he had seen a big opportunity to have a more positive impact on the future.

Over the years he had become angry over how pessimists were seen as rational. Frustrated when optimists were mocked. Annoyed with the news media for their focus on negative news.

At the same time, he got more and more optimistic about the future of humanity. Life on Earth improved at a rate never seen before.

But progress was slowed down by all the pessimism. To solve enormous challenges like climate change we need to move faster.

Mathias started dreaming of a world where optimists are seen as rational. With news media showing a fact-based view of the world. And naive pessimists don't stand in the way of progress.

Therefore he founded the non-profit Warp Institute Foundation with the mission to make the future come sooner.

Warp Institute started gathering fact-based optimists from all over the world in a community. In the community ideas are born that move humanity forward.

One future that we must make come sooner is the green future. Slowing down and stopping climate change requires faster action, more ideas and new technology.

That is why we cover the impact startups doing that.
