people say “Look how far we’ve come with the world! Barely anyone is dying of the flu anymore!”. Yes, we’ve made progress to solve problems of the past, and one can see that as becoming a better world, but we’re not looking at all the problems progress is creating. Oh, barely any flu deaths? but look at all the homicides. All our technology is causing just as much trouble. We are looking at the present as if its the best time to be alive, and everything will be perfect within the span of 5 years. Yet, we are on the brink of war with ISIS, women still can’t walk on the street alone, school shootings are happening, police brutality happens, so many kids die in africa and elsewhere because of lack of clean water, suicide rates are rising, and racism is still a thing. And yet, all we care about is the fact that our Iphone 6 plus is bending in our pockets.
