“A better world is possible” — but highly unlikely if we acquiesce to the sort of people who typically proclaim it.

A better world is possible, but it all depends on what your definition of better is, doesnt it? From 1789 onwards, we've had any number of people tell us that a better world was possible for everyone, and if everyone didnt want that better world then the people offering us all this chance at utopia would shoot the dissenters until we all got the message and marched forward into paradise together.
