The 'way things were' are always going to set a standard we might compare the present or the future to, and find it to be bleak.
It might be attributed to being in a current phase where we hear or see almost too much.
I think you're right. my mood can instantly change by my facebook feed....everywhere I turn there is horror stories and injustices all over the place and you cant help but feel powerless in the face of it all. I think right, left and center ...we all can relate to that feeling. nobody feels like they are winning and the world is becoming a better place. it is in some respects but it feels as if we are going backwards too.
Some things are better left unknown.

Not sure if it's necessarily disgusted that I feel. More likely utterly depressed. The world depresses me. Absolutely and I'd be lying if I said that there wasn't at least one or two points a day where I observe something that makes me just want to bludgeon my own head against the desk until I lose consciousness.
As to why it's like this, I'd say it's a mixed bag. Part education, part media, part stress, part selfishness and, ultimately, people being people. When I'm being really very critical, I think the reason why it's so seemingly prevalent today is because of the internet. We have a 24/7 unflinching eye on the world and all its horrors and stupidities. That's going to be jading.
It's easy to blame the elite for this. But the elite have no power, except for the power that we have given away ourselves by being apathetic.

i am loving what is happening in the world.
Its not a bad sign when more negative aspects are seen. It just shows that awareness has gotten bigger.
What is "happening in the world" is not new...you are just becoming aware of it. And thats the beginning of change.

I think they call us the "great satan" because our main export, democracy; is a finger pointing forum. That's why Washington is full of actor-agents, because any politician who would invest in it on that on a serious personal level is just wasting their time. That's why it's a good show, it's a bunch of # flingers that are only pretending to give a # about what they're flinging # about in the first place.
And as for God not caring, God protects those who were loyal. God insulated his path, the final destination is the goal that made it the only wise choice. Everything that's wrong with the world is part of the judgement which is the fact that God allowed the traitors mercy for a time, time which they spent blindly afflicting each-other and themselves.
