First World Problems
« on: September 01, 2016, 04:16:22 AM »
We’ve grown used to belittling things that don’t happen to be important to us right now with the powerful term, ‘first world problem’. This kind of tough-minded response is understandable but a bit counterproductive. Just because an issue isn’t connected to life or death, doesn’t mean it doesn’t cause genuine pain or isn’t worth thinking about. A problem can be important without being life-threatening. Moreover, we should be excited by trying to solve the most advanced problems out there.

Mark Twain — 'There are many humorous things in the world; among them, the white man's notion that he is less savage than the other savages.'
