Don't believe predictions

As an adult, I lived through the end of the Cold War, 9/11, and The Great Recession. I can't tell you how many "this will change everything" takes I've read (example).

And, of course, I have 30+ years of vegans pointing at something in the news and insisting, "This will change everything!" Not so much.

I understand that you get known / clicks / paid for having a "take." But just my personal take [sic]: Don't believe the predictions.

This
is a good explanation of how many people have gotten things wrong in the past, and how most everything currently written about post-pandemic life will ultimately be wrong.
