I wonder if it's just me seeing it this way, but I find the way society is going towards the future the earth is not going to be a great place to live. Just looking at all the facts (and maybe they are exagerated because of the news). The population is growing exponentially every day, and there wont be a slowdown, so the world is going to get more and more populated every year. Because the population is going up, violence and other illegal activity will be more noticed. Ie, say throughout history there is a 10% rate of crime... 10% out of 1 million is a smaller number than out of a billion. All im saying is that it's inevitable it will be more noticable as the world grows. Societies moral beliefs are degrading. There's a lot more people now that arent religious for instance that used to be or who's families were. There's also just their moral beliefs, like i look at cases like: Locket's case, or what Aquatica1 said about it might be for giggles, or even that one video that was posted that had the guy who committed suicide on webcam for all to see and they encouraged him on. I also saw a news clip of an old man hit in the streets in the states by a car, and others saw it take place and kept walking. Plus you really dont even have to look far to find tons of jerks, a*holes, and others of that nature out there. I mean, just think about how much people get hurt from those people. Plus there's all the bullying, rape, and other crimes. Finally there's all the environmental damage being done and cruelty to animals. Im sure it doesnt seem like a lot... but it isnt really plastered all over the news... the bilge dumped by ships, the rainforests being destroyed, waterplains being cleared away. It just seems that people dont seem to care about that, and that money is the only thing that drives this world. If it wasnt for money, noone would do it. Only reason there are recycling companies is because of the money they can make... it's not because they care about the environment. Just seems the higher up you get and more greedy you get, the less you seem to care really. Just another example of societies moral's dropping. To be honest, im actually afraid of the future and what is going to happen in it. At the rate society is changing at the moment, it's hard what's going to come next anymore... if some war is going to be started up, if some bio-engineered plant is found to be cancerous... who knows. Ive seriously debated even not having children of my own for the simple fact that i wouldnt want them having the future that seems to be comming. I mean really, what has society done to itself? I also dont really see any way things are going to improve either.... Anyways, enough blaber from me...... thoughts?
