Reality is bitter- will it become better?

For most people reality is bitter.That is the reason why media like cinema and TV have their hey days in today's world. Superstitious ideas and man made poverty are the main reasons for the bitterness seen among people. While people follow the physical culture pertaining to religions like praying, religious customs and rituals faithfully they do not practice at all the mental aspects such as universal brotherhood, love, compassion and truth, preached in all religions. People are found to be more ritualistic than idealistic.
