Would you rather die peacefully among friends at age 50, or painfully and alone at age 80?
Give me the peaceful death at 50, please and thank you.
I know it’s pessimistic… But this is a crappy world that we live in. And it’s not gonna get any better. Sure, there are a lot of good things in our lives and there’s no doubt that humanity has the tools and the intelligence to create a better world to thrive in… but we won’t. And I don’t need another 30 years on this miserable planet just to die alone and in agony at the age of 80. No, thanks…
But what about you? Which of these options looks more attractive to you? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
