Re: Is the world getting better?

The rights for women are slowly improving and equality overall is going in the right direction I think.

But is the world getting better? Hardly. I spoke to my grandfather a while ago. He said the biggest difference now and when he was young, is that back then they had hope. They had solidarity, they were going to build a better world post WW2, a safer world. They felt they had a purpose. But these days, young people think about nothing but themselves and their selfish ambitions. The egoism world wide is as big as ever if not growing. Also I see some in this thread think religion is a threat and treating people as slaves etc is of course messed up. But if you want to look at it that way, atheism gives people neither hope nor purpose either.

The human population is exploding but not the economy nor the environment can handle it. The world is slowly falling.

Tea of truth:
