And even back then, the number of humans inhabiting this little planet thus far has never been higher from year to year. Civilization has come such a long way, despite the myriad of possibilities to take it down one way or another.

Abuse disappears across generations, people constrain its spread. That's a testament to the genuine dominance of good over evil in the human heart.
I may close by paraphrasing a song of Lana Del Rey: Hope is a dangerous thing for a fellow like me to have - but I have it.
