Is mankind beginning to improve their lot? What positive change have you noticed in recent times?


So often the focus is on what negative things are happening. It's time to start seeking out what the best of human behaviour and encouraging its emulation by everyone.

    I agree - people are putting up less with segregation and arbitrary distinctions of language, colour and creed every day.

    I agree with every point except the one about making the court system completely open. After all - how can we hope for an un-biased jury if they can be influenced by opinions of people discussing cases on the internet?

    Excellent point! The social media revolution has provided a great platform for people to spread good ideas and compassionate attitudes. The bullies are the minority, thank God. :)

    Spot on that man! I agree - bad things have always happened, but it is easy to be persuaded by media sensationalization that this is all there is. It's time to spin things positively and affect some change :)

    We are not more violent at all - we have always been this violent. It is just better reported. Add to that the marvelous technologies of death we've developed and you have dangerous combo!
