Right. So why try anything in life, you’ll probably just fail. Good philosophy
Off-topic and I'm gonna get myself in trouble here.
I'm thinking of a generation of youngsters (college age) in 2018. They've been told by their parents that the future is dark (global warming; China ascendant; widening gap between the haves and have-nots; the world is stacked against you) so you'll probably fail. But we're gonna raise you with an insane amount of entitlement training so you'll be expecting the blue-ribbon of happiness every time you climb out of bed.
I can't think of anything more psychologically cruel than to fill children with those conflicting messages.
