Ole (OleGu) | 21 comments We are the lucky ones

We have unprecedented possibility to change the world around us

Where earlier generations had to fight ignorance, religious doctrines, political ideologies, march off to war, to starve and freeze - we have freedom. The freedom to make this world a more awesome place - and this is an attempt at doing so

We find ourselves in a time, in a society, and in a universe which allows us to share information. The internet allows us to convey the amazingly creative expressions of individual. And for communities of people getting together to create, and to share - through science, art and the caring for other human beings, and for the world around us.

Great writers, scientist, artists and philosophers introduce us to a new dimension of human ingenuity and creativity

We live in a very special time
In a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness

Nerdfighteria is a force for goodness, and this is my contribution
