    Hey VSauce.
    I don't know if other people have the same opinion as me, but I would prefer 1 bigger video above 10 shorts. Please spend the time in longer videos instead of shorts.
    YouTube isn't TikTok, it's sad that they imitate TikTok (which in my opinion is very awful).

    You seem to put the main accent on surviving or existence of species, and less on happiness. Shouldn't it be the other way around - shouldn't we first achieve happiness and then try to extend it for as long as possible? What good is in living forever, but being forever unhappy, suffering? Isn't it better to live for just 2 minutes being really happy, than living forever but being happy for just 1 minute during the eternity?
    I'm not suggesting that going against self-preservation instinct (or the species-preserving genetical constitution) is necessary to be happy. I'm just saying, that maybe we should put the priority on happiness rather than on that. As there are many scenarios where we successfully preserve ourselves and our species, but live unhappy for the eternity. The complete succumbing to the popular opinion and lack of the speciality in own life (e.g. when the majority of people are deciding how your teeth should be repaired, and not the small group of specialists or even one single excellent surgeon) might be such scenario. You might always live with the terrible toothache, just using protein shakes and you wouldn't have to do work, as everything will be decided by majority for you, you'll just need to copy the lines from stackoverfolw or Google something, for example, living in a generally safe world. In other words this terrible miserable pain will not decrease your chances of survival.

    fantastic video but i still dont think democracy is that great. we're heading towards a time where the crowd might be accurate in a number estimate exercise but i dont think it'll be possible to have enough individuals of a _society_ educated and knowledgable enough in a future that demands every higher foreseeing ability. everyone has access to concepts necessary to make an numeral estimate of said example but only a fraction of the population has the concepts necessary to deal with the scenarios that are far less broadly accepted than climate change. the amount knowledge needed to make accurate decisions on something is exponentially increasing but the individual's knowledge is not. the true crowd rule might be a great tool for short term, obvious threats and probably better than the fake, half-assed, corrupt system of most representative democracies but my point still stands.

The world is run by a small number of people with power, giving the rest of us no hope that we can cause a change and causing us to give up on the idea of changing things, therefore giving governments and companies no incentive to change.

    A lottocracy is a terrible idea that gets rid of merit, and including it really lowers the quality of this video and lead me to wonder why you made this video in the first place.
    Also, I watch with subtitles and saw that you changed the script at times, and for the most part I understand why it wasn't updated, but there was a point where you included more talk of people opposing your (and probably Bill Gate's) view of climate change. Why don't you face your partner in this and shill like an adult?

    It's a very interesting model, but when we choose a leader, we give him the right to make decisions, but we also hold him responsible for it.
    If we start selecting random people, giving them opinions from different specialists, who will be responsible in case of huge mistakes? Responsibility is also one of the incentives to find the right solutions and deter personal interests.

      Ehhhm, yes exactly, I see how well this is working in politics and, ehmm, eaahhh, everywhere else I guess? Has a politician really ever taken responsibility for anything? Has a CEO really ever taken responsibility? A banker after the 2008 crash? No? Right!!!! The only times the "leaders" have been taken responsible was throughout revolutions, like in the famous French one, but those are few and far between. In general, unless shit is really steaming, no one takes responsibility for anything.
