Vox has a new department, Future Perfect, covering the world from an effective altruist perspective

Hello and welcome Sammy! Excited about Future Perfect and looking forward to what Vox does with it. It looks like your comment may have gotten cut off, to the detriment of anyone who wishes to stay informed.

Thanks! Kelsey flagged this and I was able to fix it. I really appreciate you letting me know Jal :)

I've been asked to post "500 Million But Not a Single One More" on the EA Forum so that it's easier to include in a sequence of EA-related content. I need 5 karma to post - and the most straightforward way to get that seems like straight-up begging.

Just so this comment isn't entirely devoid of content: This Week In Polio is a great way to track humanity's (hopefully) final battles against Polio and one of my go-to pages when I'm looking to feel good about my species.

It’s Supposed To Feel Like This: 8 emotional challenges of altruism

You're definitely not alone - I've felt a lot of these things. Thank you for writing this. I think a lot of people are going to get a lot of good out of it.

Thank you also for what you write. We've included 500 Million at most of our London Secular Solstices and I loved Only Human...I'm tearing up just rereading it now ("The rebels who defy the world they were made for, who never stop dreaming and working for a better tomorrow." <3 <3 <3)
