Why is the phrase as popular as it is?

On another note, I also don’t quite understand what it means or implies. When someone doesn’t have faith in humanity, what does that mean?

Also, what is the humanity in the phrase? Do they mean all 8 billion people? Or is humanity understood here as something metaphysical?

  • The human project. The collective species. Where we are going as a whole. And having faith that it will take steps toward a better future instead of what is currently going on.
