    Supposedly, some cultures are better at it than ours. But still, our founders seemed to have taken the long view in a lot of things. Our space program seemed to take a long view, at least at its start.

    But I guess planning 50 years or 100 years down the road is unnatural for us. I am leaning towards focusing on what can happen in peoples lifetimes now, or to their children, for that reason. Unfortunately, the worst case scenarios seem to be getting bumped forward so that a lot of things I thought were 100 years down the road might be happening in 30 years. Or 20. The potential pile-up of warming feedbacks is terrifying.
