Philosophy and pessimism
Recently, I heard an interesting statement from a philosopher: "Welcome to our club." I explained to him before that I was increasingly pessimistic about the salvation of the world. Unfortunately, this is not a joke. The same pessimistic conclusion about the future of the world came to many philosophers studying the state of human civilization. This is very sad news, especially after the defeat of religion and the lack of interest in the real repair of the world by politics, economy and culture.
In conversations with known philosophers I tried to ask why there is so much evil in the world and why the mechanisms of bad totalitarian power are still destroying the peaceful and democratic state of the world. One of the answers was: "this type has it." The humorous tone of these words unfortunately means pessimism. It seems that nothing more can be done to repair the world. It was simply and always will be.
The efforts of psychologists trying to find the sense of what hurts us end with the statement that various psychological techniques must be used to weaken the human tendency to create evil. Therefore, social efforts for a better world are temporary and "external". This causes that negative phenomena that plague humanity will appear again and again. Essenceism is free to clearly define the source of evil in the person of Satan and the mechanisms of his action. For this reason, it tries not to enter into philosophical and theological disputes. It does not want to give in to pessimism resulting from their assessment of the situation.
