Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker explains how the world is actually becoming a better place - The Washington Post
How can we best capitalize on the positive cycle we are in to ensure things keep improving for our society and the human race?

Pinker: First, we should stop seeing every unsolved problem as the symptom of a sick society, as if we had the right to a perfectly affluent and harmonious world, and any shortcoming the work of evil saboteurs. Until the messiah comes, problems are inevitable; they come with living in an indifferent universe­. We should appreciate the precious institutions like liberal democracy, science, markets, the rule of law and international organizations, that have made life so much safer, healthier and more peaceful than it was in the past. We should seek to apply reason and open-minded hypothesis testing to solving the problems that remain, rather than appealing to the dogmas of our political tribes, or undermining the institutions in the hope that nothing could be worse than the flawed status quo. We know many things that are worse: Nazi Germany, Maoist China, current-day Venezuela, to take a few examples.

How has your understanding of the improvement of the human lot impacted you, your behavior, choices and ideas?

Pinker: It’s made me far more engaged — in politics, in charity, in advocating for positive change. Before learning how life had improved, I was more fatalistic: resigned to violent conflict, pessimistic about poverty, jaded about both government and civil-society activism. I now see hopes for human improvement as not just uplifting but practicable.

Bill Gates Addresses 'Tough Questions' On Poverty And Power : Goats and Soda : NPR
That sounds intriguing and also very different from the work that your foundation has done in the past. Are you talking about redefining the American bureaucracy?

Everybody who works on poverty has seen that just having vertical approaches is falling short in terms of effectiveness and efficiency.

We gathered a panel of 25 experts — one expert on eviction, one expert on economic mobility, and so on — to look at poverty, and they went out to those communities and created a report on what kinds of jobs and programs would be helpful.

Our foundation alone can't fund all those initiatives, but I think it's brought a lot of philanthropists together to think how [we] could be more coordinated to have significant impact.

You formed this foundation in the year 2000 with your wife Melinda. Virtually every year since then, you've argued that this is a better time to be alive than it has ever been. You make that argument again in this letter. I wonder whether you think people remain unconvinced. If so, why?

Oh absolutely, people are exposed to the setbacks, the natural disasters... When you say, hey, the murder rate in the country is less than half of what it was, they're kind of surprised. They think it must be the most violent time both globally and domestically.

That's a bit of a problem if you want to look at why we've made progress. If you're blind to it you're both depressed and not getting the benefit of where things really went well.

So we can be outraged about the things we haven't fixed yet, while actually recognizing that we've made a lot of progress. That should inspire us and educate us.
