    Do you think the world is getting better or worse?

    If you think it's getting worse, do you think it will ever start to change for the better?

    If you think it's getting better, please feel free to explain why?

    Video is kinda related...

    Re: Do you think the world is getting better or worse?

    As a person who's analytical by nature, questions like this make my head explode. I could literally write 10 pages on this topic off the top of my head. But if you want a simple answer:

    Neither.

    Good things are temporary. They always devolve into the same old ****. But, good things frequently pop up.

    That's an embarrassingly simplistic answer to a ridiculously loaded question, but I doubt you'd be able to comprehend the full answer anyway.

    The world is getting worse.

    Luckily though, my life is getting better.

    But you just keep using such big words op... with multiple syllables. How ever am I supposed to keep up...

    Good job on showing your @$$ btw, where your answer was just fence sitting and using it as a means to be condescending. But it's ok. You are still insignificant.

    It is a lot safer. Less war and poverty. Just crazy Islamics and left wing idiots holding it back from being even more better.
    I admire china because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.

    What about domestic espionage carried out by governments against their own people? Gang violence? Declining standards of living and an ever increasing need to work more years before being able to retire on average?

    In many statistical categories the world is getting better. It's hard to believe if you watch or listen to the news.

    The world hasn't changed. Technology has.
