"I can't help thinking that it is not so generous of you to take on the coat of all humanity if you predict its failure. If you do represent humanity, it could be a self-fulfilling prophecy, and if you don’t you have no real right to make the prediction. As a result, you should just accept that humanity is functional if you are not, or way more functional if you are only a little bit functional. And if you are highly functional, the earlier arguments follow. I do not feel hopeless, because I believe it is those who fail who are motivated, and so, the only reason for despair is success or meaninglessness. But meaning can be created, and success is all we will ever achieve." ---Nathan Coppedge, reply to Zsolt Hermann
