    ourselves in other people's shoes can be very enriching to our awareness and sensitivity. You may not need it, but I do. I mean I'm basically a dead white male, except I'm not dead yet.

    There is much to be hopeless about in the modern world, and plenty of hate and oppression, but our progress on the fronts you mention, our enlightenment relative to a century ago, gives some hope. Also how we view children, animals and the environment. I'm not saying enlightenment is winning, but it's clearly spread some.
