anyone who agrees with this statement tell me the world is degrading in quality and happiness. however. i think there could be possible hope, IF, you look at it this way. think of humanity as a human, now humanity is about three years old now, it does not have the wisdom and the maturity to be able to make the world a near-paradise. then you just look at this way. each,............ 7 seven years is one day of life for the combined infinity of our metaphorical child, so in that sense, world war 2 was a temper tantrum and now is when this child is getting angry and is chucking something at the wall. so if you look at it that way,.... there may be possible hope for the world.
