Good and Bad in the World

Good and Bad in the World

Quoting my mother:
- It seems there are so many things that seem just bad to your dad and I anymore. We wonder if it is because we are getting old or if the times are changing that much. -

There is this belief that the world is going to hell in a hand basket. It is not true

The world is getting increasingly better, safer, and more respectful of people.

My mother was writing me after reading my comments on Angeles City.

WW II caused the death of about 400,000 USA Soldiers.
Vietnam War caused the death of 58, 000 USA Soldiers.
Iraq war has caused the death of about 2500 USA Soldiers.

CNN and BBC did not exist during WW II.
Journalism or TV Journalism was beginning during the Vietnam War.

We are hyper aware of very small police action of the planet The Iraq war although serious, in 1942 would not have been a big deal. Journalist make it bigger than real. I just was at the Jogyakarta Earthquake and East Timor, I can tell you, it is not as big as problem as they make it, in fact it is a small problem in the scope of the whole world. The housing problem and poverty in Philippines makes the problem of Jogyakara and East Timor seem like a joke.

But there is a concentration and easy for Journalist to scream Wolf.

Journalist stop corruption, however the increase the awareness. The perception of a problem like corruption increased, while the problem decreases. The Journalist are now creating a problem so they can say there is a crisis.

I made bold this statement, to make sure your perception is correct. Read what I say, not what you want to think.

The world is getting increasingly better, safer, and more respectful of people.
