Are People In Denial?

So I think that it’s better to ask people: “Based on your own self-interest as you yourself define your self-interest, how do you expect this to work out? How do you expect the world to look in 2060 or 2070 or 2080? And how do you expect to shield yourself and your family from the world?”

Unfortunately, I think a lot of people’s answer to the above is, I don’t care, I’ll be dead. We have been conditioned for short term thinking over the last five decades.
