Well, you were born. 😉
In all seriousness, things don’t suck now. Sure, we have problems, but even with those problems, there has never been a better time to be alive. A person born today is more likely to be educated, healthy, and live to adulthood and old age than any other time in history.
The reason you think everything sucks now is that there’s an entire industry of people who make their money by stoking hysteria, anger, and fear. But they’re not right. Every year we increase the amount of renewable, clean energy we generate, and world-wide, we’re generating 11% of our energy consumption with those technologies. Next year it will be more, and still more the year after that. Every year we learn a bit more about how to cure diseases, how to build a better future.
There’s always going to be problems, we don’t live in a paradise curated by benevolent Gods. Our leaders are just regular, self-interested humans, just like the people who bring them to power. If you want to make the world a better place, your best best is this: Don’t worry about the world, worry about yourself. Be someone who is useful to others, and you’ll make the world better for having lived in it, no matter what transpires.
