A while back I had a post saying this is not new, we are just more aware. That’s my theory and today I read an article that furthered that theory.
The article basically said that this is the most peaceful time in history. I wonder if that could possibly be true? I mean there’s some pretty ugly shit going on in today’s world . Every day you hear about atrocities, it is in front of your face, broadcast news – 24/7.
The gist of the article is that we are just more aware of what’s going on not that there’s more of it. I guess there was some pretty medieval shit back in the day. Plus numbers don’t lie. But and it’s a big BUT numbers can be manipulated to tell the story one wants to hear.
Just something to think about. Because I can’t turn my brain off ever. I hope it’s true. When given the choice I always choose to be Pollyanna and think the best and hope for the best and/or be in deep deep denial. At least my heart is in the right place.
As always, more to come.
