The other big one is safety. And if an apartment is above the mechanical room or boiler room, expect vibrations and the sound of boilers and pumps going on and off. Also, if you live over a boiler, your apartment is going to be hot—and you might not want to open the window on the first floor (noise again). 5.

  • I see alot of people in the comments of these just blindly accepting what he says as fact, instead of actually thinking about what he says and forming their own philosophies, they just take the small amount that they understand of his, and take it as their own. alan watts is a truly brilliant man, but its ok to not agree with him. in fact thats what he wants, he wants you to form your own ideas by seeing his and thinking about the topic and what he presented. some of his stuff i agree with and some i dont. in particular after watching this video i still want to be immortal, if only because what i want to accomplish in life would take several lifetimes.

  • Ok, while this video is implying a number of good things it is still basically like those people who say “oh, just don’t be depressed and don’t be anxious! Live a little!” The people who don’t have cancer, divorces, deaths in the family, etc. Basically the people who have no idea what they are talking about.

  • These Are half trues the world is getting greener but the most diverse and valuble forest Are disepering. We have to look at the whole picture, nobody can say that we’r not living in a better world, then before. But still we have to demand better because better than before, is just not good enough.

  • Umm…no. While it is nice to think that we can create our own path in life, you’ll always find reasons not to press on such as high unemployment rates, severe downturns in the economy, inability to legally immigrate to another country, recruiters with their heads up their asses and so forth.

  • All this progress is under threat by the moronic far left: BLM, Antifa, Marxists they will drag us all into poverty, and make the poor even worse off. We’ve seen it before.

  • Most humans think our existential threats will come from war or pandemic or climate change. They won’t. They will happen when we turn away from the proven path to prosperity for the rich, the poor and everyone in between. Free thought, free speech and free markets.

  • wow portuguese is my mom tongue, my second languege is english,im learning spanish that is similar as portuguese, and im learning greman too.

  • Phew. More and more Reason by the day. Even Google can’t censor That. Reason, hope, optimism. It’s contagious, masks not needed, new friendships allowed. Red River Rising.

  • Ok but would measuring poverty by living on less than $1.80 per day be a bad metric due to inflation? Sure, you could correct the past to meet the metrics of today’s $1.80, but shouldn’t we reverse that comparison because $1.80 isn’t worth the same as it used to?..

  • Mam really this is a very beneficial vedio. I definitely agree with your opinion. Thanks a lot for making this amazing useful vedio. ��

  • I’m failing school. All of my grades are shit. So that means I won’t be able to go to college. So I won’t get a good job. So I’ll be homeless. So my life will be shit. Why should I live.

  • Life is a beautiful, cute and amazing LIE. Death it’s a dark, horrendous and terrible TRUTH. If the world or it’s ambiance changes, we must go with it, that’s progression.

  • Totaly Bullshit! You said at the biginning “life hase no meaning and i will die at the end anyway”.. so to saying now..ohh i can do something in my life doesnt answer and doest give an advice to..i will die anyway. Why should i do something..why should i improve…why should i do something meaningfull.
    I did all those things.. i saw no reason to doing it again. Couse humans are idiots and i dont wanna last with idiots.
    I reach money..love..and all those other stuff…totaly not worth it to reach it again. Life is nothing else then suffering an totaly meaningles. Sry for my bad gramma.. english.
    You totaly dont answerd to the headline of the clip.
    Nothing what i do will last. Nothing i do will effect my life..and why even do it..i can exist and no one will care about it. Even when i act my ass toghter and do something good for others or for the hole world. The people..the humans dont deserved it! They totaly more stupid then animals.
    The difference betwen animals and humans..animals will never do something whos bad for ther sociaty or they children… humans are ao stupid they dont do it to others..they do it even to herself…so stupid are they.. and of course they do to others stupid and bad things too.. why even border with it…cause it doesnt count.. no one doesnt care..i dont care..it changes nothing..its hoples…humans will destroy hisself and the earth too…ther os no way..we will evolve. I wish it would be a way..you cant change life..the mortality makes it not worth. Life is so fucking short..its not even reasonable to reach something. Totaly stupid. I am thinking now 6 month..to hangmyself. I have so many reasons to do it. The funny thing is..i have not even one reason to not doing it. And i am searching and searching. I said to my self..1 year. If i can find something in that time..i gues i will not.

  • just do something you love. write, read, watch an animated movie. just take it easy. and dont be so worried. its no big deal. everything’s fine. you got this.

  • For years i have suffered on being anxious about my death to the point that i wasn’t able to live properly, i never thought that such a tiny video would make such difference in my life, that would take away that burden that i was carring for such a long time, i’m really grateful for that, i can’t thank you enough!

  • Nuculer is Way to Dangerous, Solar is the way. It’s been estimated that if we took an area the size of Ohio and covered it with Solar Panels it would produce enough energy for the whole United States.!
    I just think we might have a problem talking the Ohioans into it.! ��

  • The most depressing thing I can’t deal with is that I can’t even find a reason to be depressed, which I am right now. What should I do.

  • Hey, don’t you dare to “keep calm and carry on” enough time for that is past and look where it’s getting us. The world is just fucked up in new and exciting ways, we sure are clever viruses. We shat the bed, time to clean it up or lie in it. Color me cynical but I think we’re gonna need some flushable ET wipes.

  • If you want to die, that’s fine. Everyone is going to die eventually. But make sure to die by just holding your breath. If you can kill yourself by holding your breath, that’s fine. If you can’t, that means the life within you doesn’t want to give-up. Fuck your thoughts or wanting to end the life. You need to find out why the fuck life inside you doesn’t want to give up. Look around and see the intelligence around you. Even a small stone. That intelligence is life. Be proud of being a part of that intelligence.

  • The response to the problems of climate change was way too brief and I suspect edited out. It’d be more interesting to hear more about why a global average temperature increase of 1.5 C would not be too big of a problem for future technology to handle from his perspective, especially because it’s frequently cited as being catastrophic from, at least, the acidification of the oceans and the increase in hurricanes, fires and other natural disasters.

  • I can’t be happy because I keep remembering that I’m gonna have to work my whole life until I retire. What am I gonna be doing for fun at 60. My mom might be dead by then and I’d be getting closer to death. I dropped out of high school due to social anxiety and depression. I’m 18 and need to get a ged to become an electrician or go into a police academy. I promised my mom i wouldn’t be a failure so those jobs are some of the options I have. Also the only 2 friends I have don’t ever wanna hang out with me or at least text. Nature is the only thing that makes me happy. I might just save up a lot of money and live the van life


    We need the death penalty in more circumstances, otherwise people do not take murder seriously. If not, every American should have the right to carry conceal. If we are to live like the Wild West, everyone should have the right to defend themselves. Rule of law for everyone or everyone should be allowed to carry!

    Eye for an eye. Guess what? It will solve that problem quickly.

    Biden: poor kids are just as bright as white kids.

    Me: who are the poor kids? Black kids? So you’re calling black kids poor. That’s disrespectful to the black community…………

  • There has been at least 3 ice ages on the earth, Biden would stop our oil drilling and coal mining and we would start buy oil from the mid east again and Chian would have to start burning dirty coal!!!

  • i just feel like there isn’t anything left for me, i just feel numb. i don’t want to do anything, i don’t want to talk to my family, my friends, or anyone. people have tried to reach out to me but i just don’t want to do anymore. i don’t want to have to do this for 60 more years. what’s the point? life is just constant disappointment for me. i don’t want to do this anymore

  • Well have no one and I’m not proud of my life and I see no point in life this is the third video iv watched just trying to find one thing

  • i see right through this man. he is depressed and wants to help people feel better cause he feels bad. He knows what it can be like. I wonder if he believes the things he says will help greatly or ease a great pain slightly. while this didn’t help me, whoever read this, please know that people know what it’s like and they want to help. have a good day everyone, I hope you live and i hope he helped you.

  • i dont like to say that i have depression or anything, im in a tough spot i have been for a few years and i just wanted to find reasons to keep going. the whole video was alright but it didnt move me. didnt shed a tear. but it was still a nice video. i dont know why but at the very end when you said “please dont give up” i couldnt help but start uncontrollably sobbing. i hate my future i hate where im going i hate the person i am i hate affection im jealous of everyone. i tell people and myself im content and that im motivated but i seriously am the complete opposite.

  • False narrative. He says himself that it takes much less time to “burn it all down”. Maybe that’s why most people are more focused on halting the damage and bringing nuance to conversations which are simple partisan fear mongering.

    Social Democracy and personal rights to private ownership are the model. Authoritarian nationalists are the primary problem. Be that in the U.S. or within the C.C.P. or Putin’s cabal.

  • My parents forced me to live like this i tried very hard to get out of this but they won 30 years never experienced anything in life feels like hell.

  • She is not giving like to those comments which are talking about prices….so don’t waste your time here..and practice jam technique daily for atleast 1 hour….it really helped me a lot…though i speak simple English….please give it a try…

  • Actually,I can’t go school just there are online lessons so i think not boring �� but you are right, i am watching a lot of videos and of course i am watching your videos and that’s funny for me.

  • i dont wanna feel the pain in dying but i just wanna just faint one day and never wake up but then i wanna also dont want to die i want to live like i wanna live a happy life, a life i dont have

  • It’s our medical system that is the problem on so many levels. Keeping ppl alive but not really living with medication that hurts them not heals them. How could when it is not God’s medicine. The plants are for the healing of the nation’s. Profit and making money off pro longing life for money is not. We have such a disconnect from our world and what we are ment to be and believe because every institution we wrongly support lies to us when God gave us everything we need to live and truly be happy yet we keep following these powers that be.

  • I have hope in the future, I have dreams I want to achieve. But I’m so tired. I need out now. Not in the future, not when I’m grown I need to leave these people I’m suffocated by. They make my life so bad and that’s while not even knowing I am the very thing they badmouth on a daily basis. I can’t take it anymore they’re killing me, but I’m too much of a coward to end it all. I want to live. Just not right now. Why can’t I skip a few years? I’m sensible, I’m reasonable, I have no lesson to learn I just need out. They have such a bad effect on me if started dragging my few friends down. I’m so trapped I don’t know what to do except go on fucking YouTube and rant in some comment that will fall into oblivion, just like me. Fuck it I would run away if I wasn’t so scared. I hat myself so much sometimes. I have it so much better than other people, but I know that doesn’t mean I can’t be unhappy. I still feel fake though. I asked for a therapist so I can get some time away from them and maybe talk to someone, but they won’t.

  • Great video as always and incredible drawing. His wisdom is so much like that of Buddha, we care more bringing new life yet don’t respect the concept of death nor its meaning. I try to teach my kids these things just like you would pass a torch. The torch is just not life, but the wisdom that you can pass down to make it meaningful.

  • This guy is a genius. But, i personally believe that god is Just an illusion to have an illusion of greater life. Which don’t fit in reality. I think we are our own god. A master of self-sense and understanding. We are the only creatures on earth to closely understand our sense of self and our own consciousness.

  • Thank you for the video. These things take courage to do a video about, like you did. I’ve suffered with major depression and suicidal thoughts for over twenty years. I’m once again in a rut, but I know that getting sunshine, healthy foods, and watching self-deprecating comedy shows (like Absolutely Fabulous) helps a lot. Also, taking B12 vitamins. I think trying to be exceptional is too much, and recently trying to be in a relationship has worn me out. I definitely have attachment/intimacy issues. Just gotta look back at when I was my best and try to figure out what I was and wasn’t doing at that time.

  • That’s why I always wanted to be burnt after I die like Vikings used to do,I can be planted to a tree and help it grow, maybe an apple tree so my kids/ grandkids could eat me and for generations, I would provide oxygen and a vitamins (health) which is all a parent wants for the kids, right?

  • I learn english with videos like yours and movies. And for my type of work I need english every day. And you are correct, pronunciation and fluency is the most difficult thing to learn. I improved a lot but you know, when you really talk with a person the words just vanish hehehhe.

  • It’s awesome to have someone to talk with, however it’s so hard to find this person.

    I’m searching someone to practice for 6 years.

  • I.dont get it, why there re more answers to the positive comment and not to the negatives?! This is their cry for help. Bless u all!

  • i’m 12, and i’m already suicidal. but my parents will get mad at me, or keep questioning why i’m suicidal and i’ll get in trouble for it.

  • Accepting the cycle of life and consciously looking forward to the end as well is the best assurance that in-between birth and death we can create a wonderful life.

  • I’m muslim,so I’m not feeling bad, even if I’m not rich enough because I’m muslim, if muslim obey what islam taught, then will be happy every time,
    Come to islam, islam is salam

  • You know Jesus, you can live forever with Him. You don’t know Jesus you will live forever without Him. Plus, it’s really dark and hot without Him.

  • Ronnie, I consider you are one of the good YouTube teachers around. Also I understand that you are trying to make a living; having said that it wasn’t necessary to put non-native teachers down. I think you have chosen the wrong marketing strategy. I’ve had native English “teachers” who were a complete fiasco. Classes were just an hour or so of them talking about their beach vacation, with no opportunity at all for students to speak, and/or make mistakes. I particularly remember one who even used to laugh at students mistakes. I know very good teachers with a quasi-native English pronunciation, with excellent teaching skills, and a broad knowledge of grammar, methodology, etc. I agree with you in all you said, except in the non-native teacher being an inadequate model for English learners. What I do believe though is that a non-native teacher with poor language skills it is probably not the best option. However, a native one with poor teaching skills, lack of emotional intelligence, etc., would be just as counterproductive as a non-native teacher.

    Many English teachers, especially native ones, love selling the idea of turning learners into native speakers of the language. That is a false notion. The ability of speaking as a native is not the norm or the most important thing. Learners of any language should aim at being accurate, fluent and efficient at communicating the ideas with a correct pronunciation. Very few learners are able to acquire an almost native-like pronunciation in any language. There are certain elements involved: having a bilingual family, living in the country where the language is spoken, skills, motivation, etc.

    I know the English teacher market is a tough one. I’ve been a non-native English teacher myself for more than 15 years. I can assure you one thing: downplaying your non-native colleagues will not get you more students, nor will help your reputation.

  • The biggest problem that someone like me who lives in non English speaker country is I learn English but never practice it like I never practice my speaking ability because no one around me can speak in English

  • Speak fluently with native speakers. Good. But about what? How to clean Englishspeaking toilets? No offence. Fluency looks like some kind of fetish at this time. By the way I like your videos a lot. Have a nice day.

  • I feel like shit, everyone I’ve known has pretended to like and care about me there is no point anymore and I just want to throw back a bottle of pain killers like a box of tic tacs

  • Yeah we know this when Steven Pinker was running around a couple years ago promoting his book.
    None of this is relevant when we are potentially on the verge of destroying ourselves because of yet another ideological infection.
    Libertarians keep ignroing how important religion is.
    “Muh free market” is only one piece of the pie.

  • I dont do most of these and im still miserable. I wish i could share some tips and tricks but I personally don’t know what I’m doing right so yay.

  • Modern science points towards the strong possibility that those philosophers are wrong. Not surprising since they didn’t have the ability to use microphones, run the audio through a computer program and decode their language. Animals can reason just not in the same way that we can and not in a way that’s fairly comparable to humans. It doesn’t make us better than them, an argument could be made that our reason has destroyed the planet while animal reason is more sustainable. The notion of perfectibility is bullshit too. Animals can and do deviate from instincts to adapt. This is just a weird inaccurate religious notion that you have and is not based in scientific reality. Oh and we don’t have as much control as you seem to think as human beings. This wasn’t helpful.

  • This is me and with this who am l trying to impress by setting goals it is just this capitalist society that puts people into debt.

  • I am a schyzophrenic who recently developed depression issues. My Mother died in 2011, my would to be Girl proved to be a jerk, and my poetic career is stagnating. Relating to what you’ve said, Sir, I would be my Mom but I don’t know how will I do that since I am not married. But mama pondered about marriage too. Monks have a better life, three squares and a cot, but they won’t let us in. Will God let them? As for the depression problem I would just be with my Mom God be willing. I only have to stay just a little bit longer. So you recommend reading books? It’s all I done until computers. Computers are animals, books humane? Philosophers?

  • Thinking about meaning, the thing that I thought about was living forever, making my brain and body so they wouldn’t degenerate, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, my problem is, like why am I doing this? I recently stopped playing video games, worked really hard recently, and now I’m like, okay now what, cause I hate everyone, for whatever reason I hate so many people, I feel like if I had one person I could get along with or something, I could feel like living. But everyone seems like a joke to me, or a stereo type. Like everyone’s so typical and I can read them like a book, and everyone’s so average. Like being really smart and everything is kind of a curse cause you get A’s in everything, I’m in college btw, and you get everything done, and you’re good at everything but then at the end of it your like so what. So what if I’m good? People tell you oh you’re pretty good at this and you’re like yeaa, but it’s isn’t that big of a deal to you cause you’re so good at it it’s easy, and for a lot of things that’s what it’s like for me. I pretty much have everything I want, I just hate everybody. I’m in Cali and people are so weird, I go on runs and people don’t even look you in the face anymore and say hello, it’s like you’re weird if you say hello. Honestly rather live in the early 1900s or during early America where people valued hard work and having a reputation, idk what to say, looked this up cause I’m searching for something to keep me going, pray for me if you read this

  • thanks for the great advice! I’ve been trying to find ways to isolate myself but I hadn’t thought about giving up on my goals and future. I’m really trying to get through this life as quickly as possible so I can get to the end, so hopefully using these strategies will help me pass the time.:)

  • Not really useful advise for someone with depression…. If you had a bad day, sure! But if you are depressed, this really won’t cut it unfortunately

  • Ye i have been learning English for last two and half years and still, am not able to speak fluently. Yeah i do speak 50%, but 50% still left and also daily find words.

  • It’s not as bad as the propagandists on one side claim. It is not as good as this propaganda states. It’s comparatively easy to raise the quality of life for the very poor. But a lot harder to deal with problems that arise from things getting worse in previously well off places. Is liberty growing in America? Are we able to reject bad ideas? Are we able to meaningfully motivate the worst off 5 percent in America? We have a huge number of PhD’s compared to the past, yet we can’t manage to get news articles that aren’t propaganda for science issues. We don’t seem to be making progress in getting better political structures. Cars and computers are cheap we are making great strides in making them cheaper and better. But in America we can’t make progress in making basic health care cheaper and better. Same with housing.

  • You know, I’d honestly like you guys to go more indepth, 5 minutes for a subject of “Guys, the world really is better than ever before” is honestly so small, all things considered that it should be more like 30 minutes, going indepth, also where are your citations?

    Honestly kind of a half-assed job if you asked me, the editing is good, just not substantial enough to really justify sharing, let alone to sub, i follow those who do a necessarily good job on subject, if i follow for the subjects they cover

  • But the pace may change as Marxist ideology takes over, and that’s the key thinking among the so-called intellectual class in universities and public schools, BLM, antifa, Green New Deal, Greta et al, Europe and leftist democrats.

  • I pray for all the souls suffering. I am one. I’ve survived several attempts and been plagued with ideation my whole life. My dad committed when I was 4yrs old. So I grew up in the shadow of that. I always wanted to know why it why a person would do that. So I looked for the possible reasons he it anyone else would and I found many as time went on. Then I found plenty of my own reasons. I’m still here and I still struggle nearly daily. Sometimes I will have a good streak where it isn’t in my mind for months at a time, other times it’s with me moment to moment. I don’t know why we are all here and why we suffer. But I feel your pain. And I know it’s not a small and insignificant form of depression. I know how real it gets. I hope the cloud lifts and when it does we are ready to try. It’s a struggle to get up when we are so flattened, and have so many real reasons not to. I know it. I’m living it now.

  • While I’d love to believe this claim is true…IT ISN’T! This is a terribly narrow-minded perspective attempting to aggrandize it’s own POV. The notion that the world is doing better than ever because of the factors mentioned, is embarrassingly STUPID! We are in the middle of the biggest Global hoax ever for the purposes of taking away the liberty of free peoples. There are currently more slaves on the planet, and there is more child human trafficking going on right now than ever in history! Kinda nullifies the stupid fucking notion that MORE TREES is the more important metric on which to base such a thing!����‍♂️

  • Actually i dont agree with that video at all cause i have been taught by non native teachers and turns out i know so many stuff that i use in every day conversation. If you know the alpahbet and sounds you can pretty much say every word the right way.The only problem when you go to another country is the slang which you can learn too

  • As a non-native certified ESL teacher. I’m very offended by this video.. You talk as if non-native teachers don’t know what they’re talking about.. Non-native teachers are the best people to learn from because we’ve been through what our students are going through and we can relate to them. You can’t!

  • It’s a mystery. Let go of thinking you need to figure it all out you won’t. It’s a lovely freedom to stop chasing a fastasy that you are going to have things figured out you won’t. It’s a mystery and it’s beautiful and awful and messy. If answers were easy and they clearly are not humans wouldn’t be in this mess. Humility seems useful. Just my thoughts. I don’t know:)

  • I’m just bored… no job, no college, no partner….everything is just so boring….I’m not even depressed, I’m just meh….i don’t want to live nor die either

  • You guys can learn English online with native speakers or professional non native English speakers on Italkie or Cambly if you afford to pay 10, 15, 20 dollars per class.

  • Did she just diminish my job as an english teacher just because I’m not native? I tell my students: hey kiddo if I could learn so can you, all it takes is some practice. Well played, colleague.

  • I mean I live in the Netherlands, more rhan half our country including some of the biggest cities like Amsterdam are below sea level. If we have to retreat from the cost we won’t have a country anymore..

  • i’m healing from depression that almost killed me a year ago and i’m having a bit of a rough time right now in my recovery. watching and focusing on this and the things you said made my hyperventilation stop and i was able to calm down my panic attack and think clearly again. thank you for making this thank you thank you thank you, you’re doing such an important job here i hope nothing but the best for you

  • It’s tricky for most people to see how free market economy improves our life, since they don’t see the forest for trees.
    People think that factories pollute the environment to maximize their profit, but that is against the interests of e.g. real estate and park companies. In fact, when people get rich, they want cleaner environment, and the free market encourages entrepreneurs to offer that at good price.

  • Whan AOC said the planet will end in 12 years I laughed so hard some coffee came out my nose. How she got elected is beyond me. Hey AOC the planet has been here for 4.5 billion years it’s not going anywhere in the next 12.

  • Funny because for years interacting with people has made me nothing but miserable. People have treated me like crap and being in lockdown has made my mental health so much better. This video hasn’t taken into account whether or not someone is an introvert or an extrovert, what people are actually like now it can be so impossible to successfully and meaningfully connect with them.

  • This dude is dum. Seriously. Death is wrong. All you have to do is see the faces in hospice. The population control thru death is a stupid argument

  • I’d like to be able to pay for her lessons, but it’s quite expensive. I pay for my non native English teacher 9 Canadian $ for an hour, and it’s not the only reason to love her��

  • Your videos really give me lot of hope. In reality, even just your beautiful eyes give me security, but seeing that a incredible people like you suffer from depression, makes me hope that I don’t suck so much. Thanks for all your work making videos, take care!

  • The best way to waste your life, and be miserable. Is to embrace the other unhappy and unlucky people, such as yourself. And you will inevitably push away the happy, and the fortunate currently in your presence.

  • so for me yes i’m aware i can forge my own path and all, but i’m at the point where i realized that that path will be worthless because i am not special and have no talent and have no future:(

  • Maybe meeting good people like you is my reason to live..how ever I’m so sick of fake people
    i think i can not find good people anymore. I tried so hard for many times ����‍♀️

  • I love my dog too much to die, but the day she dies, i don’t know how i could go on. She is the only reason i carry on with this damn life.

  • this is not helpful for someone that has everything coming at them……it is not that you feel sorry for yourself, but that life is so sad that you don’t see that it will get better. Going to sleep is so much better. When I am asleep, I feel good when I wake until the thoughts of why are my children forsaking me. Why are they keeping my grandchildren away from me. Being totally alone. It is nice to think that you can be positive and have the thoughts that you are expressing., it is just being kept from me. I am not discouraged, this is much deeper, in the soul. These are simple things to say, but they are not enough for people who are truly considering suicide. No will. Just want to not be here.

  • No….life isnt “good” for a lot of people right now….you cant keep telling us our house ISNT on fire…

    When we have eyeballs �� that can see fire ��

  • Don`t believed in the death or anything of this but I rather send the Elite back to H***

    After the battle finish I get to decide what I really want anything else what happen to the humans I don`t care

  • how to waste your life and be miserable? do drugs and be an alcoholic. also simply spending money and thoughts on others who aren’t worth it.

  • I’m only 12 and this video explains me 100% just thinking about it makes me sad. I have tried many sport and stuff to try to find what I’m good at and I’m out of options to the point where I have cried to my mom because I’m scared of wasting my life away playing video games and that’s not what I want. Is this bad?

  • Just $1.90 a day is all it takes to keep these people alive. For less than a medium sized Starbucks mocha latte, you can save the people of this village. And, they will be extremely grateful for it.

  • Great perspective! But you aren’t going to change my feelings with all of these facts. I say we burn it all down still, you know, in the name of progress.

  • Man, on the contrary, has the capacity to forge a personal history… of shit.
    Yes, man has the SLIGHTEST CHANCE of forging the life he desires BUT it is also human beings that make the world such a shitty place. Holding others back from success, lying, cheating, stealing, divorce, alimony, child support, absolutely RIDICULOUS laws, internet trolls, hell most people can’t even acknowledge one another on the street. It’s pathetic. I’m sorry I was ever born into it. Not one thing that has happened in 41 years has been worth all the pain & stress.
    Everything that happens that SEEMS to be a wonderful & joyous occasion will inevitably blow up in your face.
    �� this life.

  • if the point of children is so you can live on in a different way then surely you could live as long as you want as long as your always changing yourself in one way or another that way the person you were today is not that same as the one tomorrow which allows for a new birth of variety with merely the death of the old version of you who doesn’t even care and would rather be the you of the present anyway. If you are constantly improving or having a new fun or exploratory experience all the time, you would then rather be yourself in the present than yourself in the past. That is what matters in life, that you would rather be here than where you were 10 mins ago, if that’s the case then there’s no need for children and you can live as long as you want. And it doesnt matter if your in one moment or the other because as long as your good in the moment then your good for all eternity. In other words when someone ask’s you what you live for say: I live for all of it.

  • The problem with this advice is it’s based on the philosophy of meritocracy the idea that if you work hard and apply the principals or practises suggested here you’ll ‘achieve’ happiness. If you don’t, you’ll be miserable and that your fault. If those who ‘win’ deserve it, then those who ‘fail’ deserve it too. The problem is the real world isn’t meritocratic. It’s random at best and for lots of groups the socio-economic world is systematically biased against their happiness. We have finite resources and ridiculously high expectations. Want to be happy? The first principle about people was the best. We are social animals people are all we have and all we really need. Find wealth in your connections to family, friends, community. And to those with financial wealth don’t be greedy. Even tigers don’t stock pile resources!

  • What an amazing way reason has… spinning shit into fools gold is truly remarkable.

    before kings and barons grabbed peoples land demanding payment, there was no need for “wealth” to pay taxes to the king. And now that capitalism is the way of the world, people are being paid the minimum to do the maximum work. So now they make 10 bucks a day sewing cheap goods in vietnam where before they earned 6 dollars selling goods they farmed (but at least they ate and had their lives).

    The greening of the planet? HAHA! The deforestation of brazil and indonesia is far more detrimental due to their role in the planet than reforesting northern hemisphere areas. one large old timber tree holds far more CO2 than several small young trees. And we continue to dump shit in the atmosphere which only accelerates greater methane release from Siberia and the warming oceans.

    Rate of death from natural disasters shouldn’t even be on the fucking list (a 100 year sample? GTFO! Do a thousand year, 10K year sample) You know what SHOULD be on the list? Climate fires, like the one burning a million acres in the american northwest. BTW_more natural disasters like hurricanses, flash floods, and tornadoes are hitting the US die to climate catastrophe.

    Climate change won’t affect us in our lifetime? Lets celebrate… you short sighted clowns.

    Media lies have increased as their corporate owners by more and more, as the proof of success for a paper is ad sales. the wars of the last 50 years have ALL been driven by the media selling them through lies and propaganda from gov’t owned by companies that make billions selling death and war machines. The 5th estate is no longer. Its become a mouthpiece of control.

    Seriously Reason, you are an embarrassment to yourselves and anyone who sucks this down is no better than some idiot yahoo drooling for more as the Emperor Pig shits in their mouth and tells them is ice cream (chocolate).

  • Hello…! Mam I am coming from India…. I think you know my mother language is Hindi. But I want to speak English. I can’t….So plz tell how to speak fluently in short time?…plz….Mam comment box gives the answer.

  • Jesus Will Provide a Way out for you if you come to him, depression is a lack of purpose and Jesus will give you purpose. Jesus loves you and you will have ETERNALITY not dead end Earthly way

  • You are so full of it. This is nonsense. Get a bible. The fool says in his heart “there is no God”! May God forgive this horrendous Sin.

  • Thinking everyday how great it would be too fall a sleep and never wake up, but with my anxiety even sleeping is a mission. Suicide? Nah i can’t do that too my mom and little brothers it’s selfish.. can’t fall a sleep, panic attacks, restless and stressed moving around so much in bed that it hurts, maybe it’s time too just fold and take some medicine against anxiety and pray that helps, i used too admire myself..

  • Why don’t you think non-native English teachers can’t help people speak English fluently? Didn’t you think we would be offended? I have been teaching for quite a long time, and I have helped loads of people improve their fluency. Some non-native English tutors have Masters in TESOL. A few also hold some really prestigious certificates, such as, CELTA and DELTA, too.

  • I don’t want to live anymore. I don’t feel that I am doing the job the Holy Father put me here to do. But, my sins and failures are keeping me from Crossing the Rainbow Bridge.

  • Listen… I believe in the power of the free market. I believe in liberalism and capitalism, I certainly agree that a lot of parameters have been improving for many years.

    But I’m not an idiot…. and this is a collection of embarrassing Strawmen, Red Herring and half truths…

  • This hit me hard, but I realised this after living with a constant depressive feeling whenever I’m alone.. I fake my smile for everyone around to let them think I’m happy. But you should be open to this Desaster that is called life. Talk what’s on your mind, process it, think about it, and what opportunities will be descovered after ego death or mental but real Suizide.. You will be new born in every particular way, it changes the way you go about life. We live to experience the happy days. Life has no meaning, but we humans tend to give it a meaning. So why not make count every beautiful sec that you live right now.

    (boy the w*ed is kicking it good)

  • Send bitcoins to this wallet from any part of the world you are in and save lives and children.


    The good you do today will speak a long way tomorrow.

    Why bitcoins?
    This is because it is acceptable from any part of the globe. So you can be a support from anywhere in the world.

  • If we just use the technology we already have, nuclear power, we won’t have to worry about sea level rise at all.

  • What is the benefits of learning English?when you learn English language they won’t give you visa.
    Spanish is 4th language speaking in the world if you learn Spanish you can travel and communicate with Spanish or Latin America people.

  • Alan Watts was a very intelligent and gifted speaker however what he says here is fundamentally absurd you only have to listen to the opening sentences to realise that there is nothing wrong with being sick? excuse me but who on earth doesn’t when they are sick and unwell want to feel better again his arguments here are from an outdated perspective and a lack of appreciation of the potential of future technologies to radically transform the planet people and how long we live. Keep in mind that Alan Watts died from alcohol abuse.

  • I have been studying english last two decades but it seems it is not improving which brings me lot of frastration nd sometime i think i might giveup. But watching your youtube chennel is really helpful.

  • Repent God is coming now confess and believe in your heart that jesus is the christ and your lord and savior and that he died for your sins and that God rose him from the dead on the third day and you will be saved now build a relationship with God and ask the lord for forgiveness daily jesus loves you ask him to guide you and come into your life spread da word

  • Life has two doors one being an entrance another being an exit. Each day you take another step towards that exit. So why, why are we scared of the inevitable. Is it because we want to live forever. No. It is the idea of not knowing what is behind the exit. What I’m trying to say is what is the point of walking through the exit with a blindfold, instead of experiencing and expecting what is behind the door.

  • This being which is called “me” regardless of my intention and my desire want to continue to “exist” something which hasn’t learned anything other than that

  • I would like to try a class with Ronnie.She is awesome! Unfortunately currency of my country does not allow to do it. It is very expensive for me((

  • “Man” does not have the capacity to forge our own path, because societal constructs stop us outside of our control. I can not change how our society operates. If I attempt to do so, I will fail and starve, which I will not allow. So attempting to fight against our broken society is a losing game, and thus I stay disabled.

  • Cherry picking data is pretty easy. Fact of the matter, financial systems around the world are increasingly unstable and unsustainable. Wildlife is disappearing at an astounding rate. Inequality is quickly becoming the worst its ever been. Major climate change acceleration seems imminent. Military budgets are increasing around the globe. And we have an egotistical, reality TV star who has a hard time reading at the steering wheel.

  • The truth of life is unveiled go to google and search for the global truth project and read the book named the present its free and you can read it online ��

  • Liberterians are retarded sometimes. Sure, people are addicted to heroin, lack any meaning in life, aren’t creating families, but they can by a big screen tv for 200$ so life is good.

  • Awnser is because people want more money and power, by fear mongering the people you get exactly that.:) Most people are stupid, and the rest is even more stupid then the other. They all follow like a herd, instead of doing facts and facing reality.

  • Cato Institute is lying, like this…
     “UN report | Malaysia’s poverty rate misleadingly low and unrealistic”… 

  • If you live to grow old and die of natural causes then you have experienced life but if death comes too soon and you die sudden, unexpectedly and it is a tragic death…then you suffered in your life and that death is not what you willfully accept as part of life. So you struggle to survive to stay alive.

  • Is living just to keep others from being sad really reasonable? Why am I the selfish one when I didn’t ask once to be here. Guilting someone into staying has to be one of the worse things you could do.

  • I can’t afford a class. I have to make friends online, so I can talk to them. That’s better than nothing. Thanks for the video, for the helpful advice.

  • it’s unnatural to get rid of small pox, to transplant organs, to cure cancer, so with this argument, all of these things are also bad

  • its a bad argument and a bad perspective.
    you can not and should not push self centrism aside when it comes to relative evaluation of life standards.

  • Not talking about the content itself, but the visual part of this audiovisual product, the animation is strange, it’s supposed to look like those “draw my life” speed pen drawing, but its not, and it’s clear.

    That’s personally unsettles me, but I’m not saying it’s a bad thing about the video, it may have caused some hard work.

  • I disagree with what Alan is saying. All creatures have a natural instinct to survive. Nothing really wants to die. Death is dangerous. Death is the end. Once you become aware of the fact that death is an unavoidable consequence of living, the notion of death becomes an even more worrying problem. So why? The answer is simple. It’s because we genuinely dont know what happens after death. This uncertainty creates confusion, wreckless behaviour
    and selfishness. We feel our time is limited, so we become greedy and try to aquire as much material as we can and experience as much pleasure as we are allowed. As a result we become self destructive within whichever ecosystem we happen to be a part of. For most people, it can take an entire life time to acquire a single drop of wisdom. By then its already too late, you are going to die, and now you dont have the life source you need to correct course and apply your newly found sense of universal wisdom. Human beings dont have enough years to become truly mature, let alone genuinely wise beings. This is because of how we have shaped our environments. If we can extend the average life span, life goals, ambitions, and ideas become more tenable. 40 years old becomes the new 20 year old. 80 years old becomes the new 60 year old. Time is the most valuable commodity that we know of. It just takes time for us to truly appreciate when our time is up.

  • Love the reasonable optimism, but the use of party labels to demean organizations is self-defeating. If there is something that can be improved, instead of ad-hominem show how it can be done. Better yet let’s do it.

  • This whole quarantine is just making all my suicidal thoughts worse… I can’t talk to my therapist anymore because he was with my school and not seeing my friends is really taking it’s tole on me. I don’t have any motivation to do any school work and I’m scared to fail my classes but I’m not doing any of my work… I don’t know whybut it’s like I can’t…. I need help and I know I do but I can’t talk to my mom about this… people never understand why I can’t but I’m terrified of her… it’s nothing she’s done and idk why I’m so scared of her but I am…

  • Holy fuck
    I am such a low life
    I need to go outside
    I need to be more polite
    I cant stop thinking about stupid shit in my pass and what will happen in the future
    I dont know what im doing
    Holy fuck

  • Haven’t watched it yet, but if you’re going to go on the same old “much economic prosperity” without acknowledging the degenerating and declining social life and the depression/suicide/loneliness pandemics, you’re not really looking at the whole picture.

  • I want to die at any cost.. I don’t know why I’m still living this life ��������….whenever I go to bed…. I always wish that I never wake up…. Don’t know when god listen to me ������������

  • The types of things showed here are not the types of things I think are valuable. Poverty per se, for example, doesn’t matter. It is true that people think things are getting worse on metrics where it’s actually getting better (but many of those metrics are unimportant). Things are currently getting worse on the most important metrics (stress, depression, chronic diseases). I have high hopes for what technology can do for us in 100 years, but it is currently taking us in the wrong direction. It has only done a few good things.

  • Best. Video. Ever. Please tell me how you edit your videos. Also this video made me feel comfortable and super uncomfortable all at the same time��

  • The “overal progress” of the world doesn’t mean anything to me, when my entire society has become criminally insane and incapable of telling the truth. Every single thing that used to bring me joy has been ruined by the powers that be. I can’t teach my students math because social justice ideology has infiltrated every aspect of schools. I can’t send my children to public schools, I can’t watch sports, I can’t watch movies, many of my friends and family have been infected by the insanity. I’m glad the world is putting less carbon in the atmosphere though….

  • So, the solution to overpopulation is to have children, then die? We start dying the moment we are born. Why can’t we live forever on some other land as to not overpopulate this one planet called Earth?

  • Society is slowly falling apart around us under the ravages of accelerated ecological disasters, a new Cold War, a growing police state, and collapsing legitimacy of institutions, but Reason is still doing the “Everything is getting better, actually” meme.

  • I know if I was on my death bed, I would want to see this. I think this video could be highly beneficial for older patients in hospitals. I’ve shown this to several doctors and nurses, and gotten great feedback so far. If you know anyone who works with the elderly or hopelessly ill patients, please share this with them. I’d love to hear their feedback. These ideas could fix some of the major issues in our current healthcare system. I also want to give a big thank you to those who support on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/AfterSkool

  • The human condition is a curse lol. People tell me it gets better. Ive wanted to get better. Ive recovered. Ive relapsed. Ive waited. Ive tried so hard. But I’m back here time and time again, and Im so tired. There are beautiful things, and if I think too hard about it, I can keep myself alive, but I am irrational when I am sad, and I have tried to die, and I feel as though I will try again. Death isnt the first choice. But my first choice involves being entirely separated from society, which needs funds to take off, which I dont have, because the world runs on capitalism. I want to live. But not like this. I CANT live like this.

  • Thank you for this. I’m hoping the future will see competition in news that is factual. The sensationalism driving most media is unhealthy for the entire world. I think there’s surely a market demand for reality and it’s not just train wrecks until the last five minutes in an hour. We need a TRULY balanced source. A news app that allows for custom settings for notifications, such as choosing which categories, stories, people, etc, would be heaven. Default notifications for major breaking stories and time windows might also help.
    You’re contributing to the world in a crucial way and the timing couldn’t be better. Thanks again.
