    The world today?

    Primarily that there is so much easily accessible information that coincides with a lack of skills in information management and digestion.

    Because of this informational cacophony, there is increased competition in garnering attention, which then contributes to even more noise.

    Eh, I'd much rather blame that species of bipedal chimpanzees that's running around all over this planet. Their mischief is the stuff of legend!

    The world is in better shape then it was between 1914 and 1945.

    1914-18 - World War I, 9+ million people die;

    1917-early 20's - Russian Revolution, millions die;

    1918-19 - Spanish flu, up to 50 million die;

    1929-39 - Great Depression;

    1920's and 30's - Following Russian Revolution millions die in Stalins' farm collectives initiatives that results in widespread hunger, also in the Stalin purges;

    1939-45 - World War II - 55+ million die (including 16 million in Soviet Union I believe).

    And that was over a 30 year period.

    The world does have a lot of tremendous challenges ahead, especially with trying to balance a growing population (6.6 billion), environmental degradation, and the depletion of natural resources.

    Oh come on, admit it. There's a few million people right now I wouldn't mind purging.

    Stalin has such a bad reputation, but why? Didn't he just want to be loved, just like you and me?

    This is my favorite Flight of the Concords song. I will spend a joyous day with it stuck in my head.

    I mean, sexually repressed people can be bitter and angry.

    Good point, we need more sex and loving in the world. Demonizing sex has lead to so many psychological problems over the millenia.

    I am such a 60's child at heart, make love not war!icon_cool.gif

    What is right with the world today? I think that is a more productive and positive question. There has and always will be something "wrong". Change your perspective change your thoughts change the world.
