the world is kind of fucky, but it's changing. How will it change? Who knows, we're clearly out of idealism, nobody has any idea for a brighter future, but that just means new ideas or technologies will come into place or maybe we've reached a temporary plateau.
Either way, you're going to die anyway you might as well see how the film ends. Maybe you're just an extra in human existance, but so is everyone in the grand scheme of things so don't be so harsh on yourself and take some time to find some things that you value and cultivate them.
If that thing is money, chances are you're not going to be very happy anyway, the best you could hope for is just rich.
