Taking Another Look At "The Falling Apart Again"

Updated on May 30, 2014

Here's the list. You decide.

A mental note will suffice, but use this checklist from the previous Hub done prior to the awarding of The Oscars, to decide for yourself whether world relations and world dangers have been "Better," "Worse," or "Stable" (no reference intended to California Chrome) since that time.

[If you decide to be more formal in your selections, you can print this and keep score.]

The Referenced Hub:


Putin vs. The Civilized World............. Better Worse Stable

Syrian Tyranny vs. Democracy......... Better Worse Stable

Religious Killings in Africa............... Better Worse Stable

North Korean Adventurism.............. Better Worse Stable

The "War On Terrorism".................. Better Worse Stable

China vs. Japan/Vietnam/Phil......... Better Worse Stable

China vs. USA Pacific Stance........ Better Worse Stable

Worldwide Military Spending......... Better Worse Stable

Cyber-spying and Hacking............ Better Worse Stable

The U. S. National Debt.................. Better Worse Stable

The World Economy...................... Better Worse Stable

America's National Leadership.... Better Worse Stable

National and Western Unity......... Better Worse Stable

The Palestinian Question............. Better Worse Stable

Drug Lords, Gangs, and Crime.... Better Worse Stable

The Arab Spring & Egypt............ Better Worse Stable

Tensions of India/Pakistan......... Better Worse Stable

The Effectiveness of the U.N. ... Better Worse Stable

In Totality Is Today's World........ Better Worse Stable

If you choose to leave a comment (encouraged) you might also list any other major concerns not mentioned in this brief listing.


World leaders have enough trouble trying to consider the needs of their own countries. In the process, who is looking out for the freedom and futures of individuals around the world?

      Dear Heart, I worry but I try not to keep score. I can't say that worrying might give me gray hairs because I went prematurely gray years ago. I let Mr. B do the worrying about world affairs, and I take care of little things like the house payment, car payment, etc. It is food for brain fodder, though, because I wouldn't have thought to put it in this context. Voted up.

      If one out of every two Americans actually took the time to be concerned (and air those concerns) about world affairs, America would play an even more important role in the world. Thanks for sharing with Mr. B.

      Dang it, I could not do a stable or better for any of them. It is probably just my attitude. Time for me to write a hub of gratitude.

      Grateful that it isn't even worse? It could be, and it seems headed in that direction. We are faced with too many problems and all at the same time.

      For those of us that choose to make it a better world through individuals, things are looking UP by staying away from those in power.

      That last comment applies to all men everywhere. It is somehow a universal truth, only confronted by the power of love.

      If things look too good to be true, they are probably being offered by a politician or someone in the government!
