Final Words

Hans Rosling. Factfulness. The renowned Swedish professor, researcher and optimist was diagnosed incurable pancreatic cancer in February 2016. He immediately cancelled all his speaking appointments to complete this gorgeous book. He died on February 7, 2017

„I have found fighting ignorance and spreading a fact-based worldview to be a frustrating but ultimately inspiring and joyful way to spend my life. I have found it useful and meaningful to learn about the world as it really is. I have found it deeply rewarding to try to spread that knowledge to other people. And I have found it so exciting to finally start to understand why spreading that knowledge and changing people’s worldviews have been so damn hard.

Could everyone have a fact-based worldview one day? Big change is always difficult to imagine. But it is definitely possible, and I think it will happen, for two simple reasons. First: a fact-based worldview is more useful for navigating life. Second, and probably more important: a fact-based worldview is more comfortable. It creates less stress and hopelessness than the dramatic worldview, simply because the dramatic one is so negative and terrifying.

When we have a fact-based worldview, we can see that the world is not as bad as it seems – and we cann see what we have to do to keep mking it better.“

In this sense we wish our readers a merry Christmas, joy, peace and wisdom  and a prosperous New Year!
