    In the battle between good and evil - which is winning?

    In today's world, doing the right thing is becoming increasingly difficult.  Are more people "going over to the dark side"?

    Why do you feel that "everyone" is choosing the darkside?  It is only dark until you turn the light on.  I do not see many going anywhere in today's world due to more suppressing  by the governements and the banks.
    Doing the right thig is ALWAYS a choice.  Lots of people are doing the Right Thing.

      I do not necessarily believe that everyone is choosing the dark side; but, sometimes it's hard to see the good.  I know it's out there, I just wish it were more visible at times.

      Poople like you?  Seeing only the dark side.  Open your eyes and stop listening to the religious clergy who are told to keep you in the dark.

    No, most people aren't going over to the "dark side".
    Anyone that watches the "nightly blues' is likely to ignore the fact that out of the 7 Billion people on this planet the vast majority of folks are simply going to work and providing for their families.
    They come home in the evening, have dinner, watch TV and start all over again the next day. On weekends they go to movies and shop.
    It's often been stated in the media: "If it bleeds it leads".  What makes the news are the exceptions, the shock,  things to fear/worry about.
    The goal is to get "high ratings", sell more newspapers/magazines, or generate more clicks on a website in order to ask for top dollars from advertisers. Good news doesn't sell nearly as well as bad news!
    If the vast majority of people were killing and stealing the media would have to find something else to top that! Generally speaking if it's on the news it's because it's the exception or NOT "ordinary".
    The "good" is winning because they by far outnumber the "evil".

      Thanks for your answer.  I ultimately believe that good does prevail; but, sometimes it's hard to see the good.

    Most of us, I think, are rooting for the good to win over the evil -- but things don't look too good right now.

    I have no idea what you think "evil" means. The concept is not universal. It's relative.
