This year has hit me right in the faith in humanity. It's hard to even pick which thing about it has upset me the most. And when I was writing this video, I just kept putting down more and more and more words...it was very hard to stay on one track.
Anyway, I'm bummed out, but I just do my best to remember that the people I know in the real world are more than 90% super great, which means that's probably also roughly true of the general population.
Also, if you're wondering why I'm voting for Hillary Clinton, it's not just because I think Donald Trump believes the whole world is a game for him to win at any costs, and that his presidency would significantly increase the odds of apocalypse (though they would still be quite low). It's also because she's accomplished a great deal of good in her career, which I talked about a bit here: https://www.facebook.com/hankgreen/posts/101571...
Do I have problems with Hillary? Sure...but they're mostly with things that I don't know /anything/ about, like how to conduct the foreign and military affairs of the most powerful country in the world. I feel like we do that wrong in the U.S.. But I also freely admit that I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to that stuff, and I think it's pretty weird that so many people think they do.
Anyway. Humans are great. We've got our issues, but I'm quite proud of us...even in this pretty unpleasant year.
