Is the world burning up?

Day 567-1

If you study our history you will realize that the world was a much harsher place not so long ago.

I was just watching a documentary about Wilhelm the second and how they lived. The luxury and freedom they had while most of the people in Europe where mainly occupied with surviving, working long days, living unhealthy and hardly no chances to get anywhere. You think it’s unfair, you start reading Marx, getting upset… Til i looked around, a carpenter, in a warm house. I can get up now and go wherever i want, I can use my last money and be in Italy tomorrow. I changed careers, been to several schools, I can steer my life in large parts where I want it to go… I live better then royalty in the 19th century. I realize that there are enough people around the world that still live in the 19th century but there is no reason to believe that they will live like royalty to one day.

So I don’t think the world is burning up. We have taken several steps forward, and often one back. I get sad if i see the competence of some leaders, the lack of compassion, the step back towards thoughts we’ve dealt with in the 1940th, the lack of historical knowledge, but we still live better than ever before and if you don’t believe me…Study history.

“The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
