David Brin: Optimism as Realism, Cynicism as Vice


  1. So maybe there are problems that can be solved in a civilized way. These have occurred before, some of them human drive and some natural, like an astroid hit.

  2. This is my go-to video for linking to friends when the subject of cynicism comes up, or when they are stuck in 'hater-mode'. Dr. Brin has a talent for bringing important ideas to light in a careful, thoughtful and creative way. I think his 'Existence' should be required reading for every American!! Excellent stuff!
