It’s a Wicked World That We Live In

Is the world getting worse, or are we just more aware of the awfulness of people because of the internet’s immediacy?  Viciousness, violence, racism, elitism, sexism, apathy, vanity, devisiveness, and inhumanity abound.

TMZ.  Kim Kardashian.  YouTube Commenters.  #TCOT.  Fox News.  And then there are those who will actually shoot you in the face.

But…

Why argue when you can understand?

Why be right when you can be kind?

Why be mean when you can be empathetic?

Our American values are so twisted nowadays.  Selfishness and scorn have replaced sharing and caring.  Wealth at all costs has replaced creation, service, and honest production.

How does one cope in a world this shallow?
