People talk loudly about the constant change taking place in the world. People often remark that change is the only constant. Change is alright. "But are we changing for the better? " is a million dollar question.

The wealth of the nations are siphoned off to wasteful expenditure. Cinema is a great wasteful expenditure.People are taken for a ride by the cinema people. Military gets priority over people's hunger.Digital world making people robots. Most of the changes are affecting peace on earth

Things are getting worse, and people are getting meaner and more greedy.

It isn't a straight line in either direction. In general though, I believe the percentage of people suffering is much less today than it was even 100 years ago. Going back further than that, it just gets worse and worse.

Will things continue to get better? I certainly hope so, but I fear the worst.

For some it is getting better - third world countries for instance. For others it is getting worse. Diluting America is making Americans strangers in their own country without the protections of the invaders. Shutting down our government does not make things better for the citizens of this country.
