For me personally, 2017 was a complete disaster and 2018 was better only by virtue of 2017 likely being the worst year of my life. For the world as a whole, neither 2017 nor 2018 was particularly great either. So you’ll forgive me if I’m less than enthusiastic about the prospects for 2019. It’s not that I feel that the upcoming year is destined to be calamitous. It’s just that the root of the world’s problems is the same as ever: us.
