sigh.....well, how do you determine that there are more problems in the world???
Is it that there are more problems, or that we focus on them more, or that the internet and communications has advanced that we now know what's going on in the other side of the world in seconds?
I mean, look at the 20th century. WWI, the Depression from 25-41, then WWII, a few years til the Korean War starts, that's through the 50's, then a few more years and then Vietnam starts until the mid 70's............When hasn't there been civil wars? Famine? Disease?
Do we really have more problems now????
