Longtermism (Philosophy)

Longtermism is the idea that we can maximize our impact by working to ensure that the long-run future goes well (because it may contain an enormous number of people whose lives we may be able to improve).

This is a relatively new idea, and people in the EA movement currently work on a wide range of open questions related to different facets of longtermism. 

This tag is meant for discussion of longtermist philosophy, rather than specific longtermist cause areas (there are other tags for those, like Existential Risk).
