In an era when things are going better than ever, we all assume it’s about to fall apart. … And I think it’s bullshit. I think you could have made a much better case for impending Armageddon 100 years ago (1913 — the brink of World War I!) or 100 years before that (1813 — the entire world at war, thanks to the man many believed to be the Antichrist, Napoleon!). Shit, go all the way back to 1363 and you find the Black Death, a plague that killed 75 million fucking people. A dude walking around back then with a sandwich board proclaiming the end times would have been impossible to argue with. Yet, 650 years later, here we still are, bitch.
So, with all due respect, fuck the apocalypse and everyone who believes in it. Let’s try to fix the world instead. David Wong (via cracked)
