The MCPL website states, “We have riots over brutality and racism in policing. We have a global pandemic. What is there to be optimistic about? Talk with Gregg Easterbrook, author of It’s Better Than It Looks: reasons for optimism in an age of fear (2018) and consider his view that by almost every meaningful measure, the modern world is better than it ever has been.”
