2nd Quote, For Those Who Were Enraged By the 1st One

Many of the big American stories now, the most-told stories, are apocalyptic. They’re stories about how the world is getting hotter, more crowded, and dangerous. They’re about arctic floods and disappearing resources and entropy and the world winding down. And nobody knows whether all this is fiction or not. But like many complicated stories about the future, there’s no way to predict which version is more likely. It’s just sort of a matter of preference. It comes down to which story do you like better? This is another thing I love about stories— they are wild and alive and always changing.
- Laurie Anderson
