  • Yes it is getting steadily worse than it was 20 or so years ago.

    While the world is still better than it was many years ago, We are indeed worse than what we were at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. Yes there have been monumental advances in technology and health care, However access to said advances, However are more polarizing than ever before to the point it almost nullifies said advances for the average person. The gap between socioeconomic classes has steadily been increasing. Wages for the average working person have remained stagnant for many people and they haven't budged in 20-30 years. While unemployment has dropped, We work more hours for less pay and underemployment has skyrocketed with many college graduates working jobs that they are overqualified for that pay much less than what they are needing to put it simply. This isn't just in the U. S either, It is occurring in other nations as well including the U. K and Germany. Even outside of just work not adequately providing the needs of people and an ever growing poverty line also, We are growing closer to the brink of nuclear war, Or at least the closest since the Cold War with Russia with the ongoing tensions with North Korea. To make it matters even worse, At least here in the United States, We live in the most divided era since the Civil War regarding politics to the point that literally each political party is lying about everything under the sun about the other political party even when the lies defy science, Reason, And common sense (examples being people who are anti-vaxxers and climate change deniers). What makes it even worse is the masses ignorantly believe their side of their choosing without consulting to get the full story. When I was growing up, There were political tensions but they were pretty minor by comparison of today, Where at least your neighbor of opposing political views would help you out if you were in trouble. Also, While drugs have always been a societal problem and it has been much worse in the past, What is concerning is the number of deaths from opiates has been on the rise even more so than in the past which unfortunately is starting to greatly affect communities throughout the world including the United States, And Poland's Federal Government even making drastic measures to address their drug problems. Finally if that all wasn't enough, The United States and their allies are still conducting war operations in the Middle East despite being almost 20 years since war was declared with many lives lost and absolutely no real progress even being made to actually end the war.

    So yes while the world is still better than what it was 150 to 200 years ago, The world isn't as good as it was in the late 1990s early 2000s. Things were not perfect even back then granted, But at least

  • 2nd law of thermodynamics

    2nd law of thermodynamics: Physicist Lord Kelvin stated it technically as follows: "There is no natural process the only result of which is to cool a heat reservoir and do external work. " In more understandable terms, This law observes the fact that the useable energy in the universe is becoming less and less. Ultimately there would be no available energy left. Stemming from this fact we find that the most probable state for any natural system is one of disorder. All natural systems degenerate when left to themselves.

    The world is decaying itself day by day. That is the scientific proof we have observed in the scientific terms. Even atheists don't deny this.

  • Human Beings suck!!

    Too many people are deceiving others!! Christians are getting worse too.
    Alot of disabled people are suffering because of those arrogrant people treating them horribly!! No wonder they want money but not human beings, Parents are after $$, not babies or foster kids etc. SHAME ON YOU!!!

    Be nice to other human beings and work together, then the world wouldnt get worse.

  • The world is getting worse!!

    I think the world is getting worse because did you hear about all the pollution all the global warming. Did you hear about the atmosphere getting weaker because of the pollution in our earth. We are destroying earth by using fossil fuels, which cause the greenhouse effect which cause global warming and global warming

  • Advance of tech does not help

    Years ago, people were uninformed, and as such, a lot of people did bad things to each other and the world.
    As we get more intelligent, and develop more tools that could re-shape and help the less-fortunate (and our world), we insist on using money, power and knowledge to continually degrade each other and our environment. We now KNOW better, but choose to watch the Kardashians instead. Pathetic race of being we are...

  • Everything is getting worse

    Since all those famous fools and all the fandoms it's just sucks th gg. D j k k k kbk k k k k k k k k k k k k k j j h hvb bvhbhvh bvvv b j j j j j j j j j j j

  • Off course it is.

    Global warming, abusing of petrol, idiots in power, majority of people are fools, inmorality, pride, vanity, masochism, greed, fear, gluttony, sadism and sloth are the keywords for majority of lowlife races that abuse nature.

    Dumbfucks need to grow the fuck up and at least try to get mature in order to let nature take control back. Just grow some trees and stop the using of oil, your stupid car doesnt justify the fucking end of the world. What the fucking else do you need in life beside a woman and a tree and a lake you douchefucking idiot.

    Yea I know it isnt that easy to get mature but for god sake at least try.

    This is, with no doubt the fucking beggining of the end of the world as we know it.

  • Economy mistakes h

    Stop force of love your pitting rain will light to naughty fool say a laugh and worry with care too poor not rich go and help others and be nice and please have faith happiness love do more go more no more clown face act now America this is dark

  • Yes, particularly morally.

    More and more people are becoming tolerant of things that were unspeakable just decades ago. Sex and violence are prominent features of today's mainstream entertainment. More and more children and adults are using profanity and behaving disrespectfully. Society in general shows more hatred toward one another than love. Oh and of course dito on economic and climatic declines.

  • I believe it is

    From climate change and unpredictable weather, including severe droughts around the world, to increased natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. The dying of bees needed for pollination is occurring around the world as is War. It appears that the majority of western economies are on the verge of collapse and civil unrest has never been higher.

  • The News Is Corrupt

    Ever heard of "Bad News Sells"? I'm not talking about poorly written news, I'm talking about news about bad things. Did you hear that we just discovered a cure for cancer that is exceeding expectations when it is being tested? No? I guessed that. The news only talks about things regarding to safety. As In, people dressed in clown costumes going on rampages. Or that super smart Idea about eating laundry detergent EVEN THOUGH the media has lied the entire time meaning they have cause the entire spook about eating tide pods. (They got their stories off of viral tweets. Check out Game Theorie's vid on that for more information) The number of plane crashes has gone down but reporting on them have gone up. The snow leopard has officially been taken off of the endangered species list but not that many people have heard of it. We see shooting and mass killings but NOBODY releases that child abduction rates can plummeted. To get these types of happy information, you have to search into the deep depths of the internet. So smile and keep moving forward.

  • As within, so without:

    I think people will respond to this question based on the states of their internal worlds. If one feels his or her personal world is getting worse, one will project this internal state to the outside world and vote ”yes” to the world getting worse. On the other hand, a getting-better internal world would produce a getting-better external world vote. As within, so without. For me, both my inner and outer worlds are getting better over time.

  • In every measurable way the world has improved

    Look st any graph measuring literacy rates, child mortality or poverty rates and you will see that we live at the best point in history. It is easy to forget that not long ago we are a species that evolved in an entirely diffrent time. We focused too much on the negative, and the news we watch doesn't help that

  • The world has gotten better virtually everywhere.

    If you think that the world is getting worse, just look at virtually every stock market's 10-year return. The Dow Jones has doubled. Look at politics. It is very divided, yes, but 100 years ago corruption was commonplace. Also, I don't know about you, but movies are looking a lot better than they were in 1950.

  • If you actually look at the facts it's getting better

    Everyone thinks the world is getting worse because the human brain pays attention to negative things way more than positive things. To prove everyone wrong who thinks the world is getting worse, read the book abundance and you will realize that the world will be way better in the future and you pessimists should lighten up and please stop using your totally bad comebacks to try to prove me wrong!

  • Gee, I don't know, wasn't it 70 years ago mass genocide and human experiment was common place?

    Of course things aren't getting worse. We're in the age of information and liberalism. Are you all forgetting that 70 years ago the japanese and germans were trying to take over the world, and worst of all, they were conducting all those sicking human experiments. And the further you go back in time, the more common place this was! Religions no longer have a strangle hold on society, animal cruelty and human rights abuses are easier to address given the technology we are now able to garner global support for issues in a matter of days. If the mainstream media was accessible 100 years ago as it was today it would have looked like hell of Earth. How can you say things are worse today when a 100 years ago slavery was still in place? I could go for days but it's just common sense. The worst thing about modern civilization is the population growth. WE NEED TO CAP THE POPULATION GROWTH! We got too many people! That Asian continent needs to stop multiplying, now!

  • No, not at all.

    Everything is not getting worse in the world. In fact, violence is at historic lows as I write this, medicine is improving world wide, life span is increasing in virtually every country, more people now have access to clean drinking water, and education is improving almost everywhere. But it is worse in some ways.

  • With More People Comes More Problems

    Everything isn't getting worse in the world, it just seems that way. When the population of the world increases, the needs of the world increase. Things don't get worse, there are just more mouths to feed and more opinions trying to be heard. Things will get better when we learn to feed and house more people to save their lives and increase the quality of life.
