Reading my social media feed, I'm left with two impressions:
1. Veganism is taking over the world.
2. We're all about to die on a burned-up planet.
Of course, neither is true. Per-capita consumption of animals has never been higher. And despite everything that has happened in billions of years, life has never been wiped out on Earth.
I understand how attractive it is to believe a simple narrative. But simple narratives almost never lead to real-world progress.
