It’s so easy to forget so here I am reminding myself again

The fact that I have

- a roof over my head
- clean water
- safe, sanitary food
- access to medical services
- stable and disposable income
- leisure time for personal pursuits

puts my existence on par with a level of luxury completely inaccessible to nearly every human alive

and unfathomable to nearly every single human who has ever lived and died

It’s so easy to forget


@warriorstar I'd add that we wield powers that were literally the sole province of gods, in many mythos. The ability to communicate with nearly anyone in the world, or see images of things happening far away.

The list goes on and on. But like you, I try to remember that in the history of the world, I and my family enjoy luxury beyond kings and emperors, with indoor plumbing, running water, refrigeration, and safe food .


@pseudonym @warriorstar

And I, for one, am a passionate advocate for extending those blessings : more of them, for more people, and not just for now, but far into the future.

We have the means.
