I'm fairly optimistic about the world. I know that there are problems and there are many things which are still wrong. But overall I think that if you look at the big picture; if you look at history over decades, centuries and millennia it is clear that there is real progress. In the long run humanity progresses; the amount of goodness and love in the world increases. I do see that happening even today.

An interesting fact as an example: 8000 years ago, when Britain separated from the continent and became an island, there were only 5000 people in the whole land. Only 5000, across hundreds of miles. That's as many as could be supported under the foraging civilization at the time. Now there are over 60 million. I find that an extraordinary fact. If you consider how far we have progressed already then there is every reason for optimism. We can continue to progress and make life even better for people than it has ever been before.



"Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and wrong because sometime in your life you will have been all of these."

To be honest, I don't think life is much different today than it always has been. We have more information, and more access to information, so that we can know and see what is happening elsewhere in the world, but that's just a technological advancement.
Information isn't the only thing that has a wider grip. People can be so mobile now that there's no boundary between "us" and "them" anymore, and that's problematic when two cultures have different laws, lifestyles, and customs.

What beckie said.

I dont like the world today, its not safe, yes our technology and medicine has improved but there arent communities like what used to be. Everything good is being used for war and crime. And those trying to make the world good again are shot before they can start.

If your poor your poorer and if your rich the fat cats love you.

I worry for my sons future, my generation seem alot to be criminals and have a i deserve everything for nothing attitude (not saying everyone but there are alot) i wonder what the future is going to hold for him, will there even be a future the world seems happy to blow each other up. When will it stop?

Why Can't I feel Happy? :(

I feel like I live in a world and society in which I do not and can never belong, the way most people act just seems alien to me, people do or say things that I can't ever imagine myself wanting to. most people seem to have such a cruel way of looking at the world and other people as well, society is so superficial and judgemental, it makes me so sad, I wish people could just be nice to each other and not be so cruel and things.

I don't understand why the world is the way it is at all and I just feel like I don't belong here, how can I exist in a world that contradicts everything I feel about who I am?
