“Humans are very malleable. People can be inspired to do amazing things.” Philosopher, Giving What We Can co-founder and “What We Owe The Future” author William MacAskill shares his beliefs on the “common sense” importance of helping the future generations, effective altruism and how donating more than 50% of his income isn’t a sacrifice but a reward, and effective ways to fight climate change. #DailyShow #Comedy

    People should give up to 99% of their income, but vegetarian is far enough? Honestly Will, take some of your own advice and personally do more, eh?

    I disagree with the idea of billionaires be giving 99 percent of own wealth, it is impractical and celebrates class difference , better if they were to create pragmatic real job opportunities for the poor and keep their companies green no matter the cost.

    I agree with him to care about future people in the long run does make sense you’re trying to care for a next generation you don’t want them going through what we went through you want them to deal with their own set of problems rather than those set of problems plus what we didn’t solve.

    Factory farming is a major contributor to climate collapse. Go vegan for the planet.
