The World is Better...

1/19/2022
The Great News Podcast is brought to you by podcasthero.com. For information on how to start a podcast go to www.podcasthero.com. Tired of all the doom and gloom news from mainstream media? You'll get none of that here. Instead, you'll find inspiring stories and developments that are making the world a better place. Today… In the first episode of the Great News Podcast, I want to go over the 4 main reasons I wanted to start this show. My name is Andrew McGivern and this is the Great News Podcast. Why is the mainstream media so biased toward bad news? Bad news sells newspapers and gets clicks and attention. We are wired to respond to bad news in a more aggressive way. Our fight or flight response kicks in when we see a bad news headline. This is baked into our genes. Our ancestors that didn't respond this way didn't pass on their genes. Bad news happens suddenly and good news happens incrementally. An earthquake or plane crash happens suddenly and has serious consequences. Cancer research and breakthroughs happen slowly over time. Problems get solved and we move on to other problems. The focus is on the current problems. We forget about all the great solutions of the past and give greater importance to the problems we are facing. The Great News Podcast is great, but the Great News Letter is greater… [SmartQuizBuilder id=12][/SmartQuizBuilder] Don't miss the next issue… One of my favorite books is Factfulness by Hans Rosling. In the book, they talk about the gap between our perceptions of the world and reality. We think the world is far worse than it is and that it is getting worse year over year. Well, the world, in general, is better than we think in almost every measurable way and the trend is that it is getting better over time. And has been getting better for a long time. Of course, that doesn't mean that everything is great and we can stop trying to make things better. Just because the world is better than it has ever been doesn't mean that it is acceptable… we can and should continue to make things better. And I believe the evidence is overwhelming that we are improving. And the more we work towards a better future the faster we will get there. The authors of Factfulness have a great organization and website over at gapminder.com. There, they have quizzes you can take which will test your knowledge about the world and whether or not you have a reality-based worldview. In the book, they explain that most people score poorly on the Gapminder tests. Most people believe the world is much worse than it actually is. Why do we have such negative views of the world? It isn't all the mainstream media's fault. We were taught in school about the developing world and how bad the conditions are there. They live in absolute poverty without access to clean water or sewage systems. No vaccinations or basic medicalmédical care. What we don't realize is that the developing world has developed over time and now there are only a handful of countries in absolute poverty. But some countries are still in regular poverty which is still not so good. A lot of these countries are not satisfied with regular poverty and are working towards joining the rest of the developed world in prosperity. Have you ever heard people say that they don't want to bring children into this horrible world? When I hear that the first thing I ask is when would it have been better? At what time in history would it be better to have children? 20 years, 30 years, 100 years, or 300 years. In the book Your World, Better by Charles Kenny, he gives a great example of what life was like 300 years ago. If you were living in France and were the richest and most powerful man in Europe, King Louie 14th, would that be a better era to have children? Well, King Louie had five children. Two of them died before they reached six months of age. Another two died before reaching the age of five! And the other died before he did at the age of fifty. His wife...
