You said the world has never been so evil.
But it has. It always has been. It wasn't that long ago that gory public executions were a popular form of entertainment. Violence in general is still very popular around the world - whether it be wars or fictional media
It may seem like sexual depravity and abuse is a new thing. But it's not. The only difference between then and now is it was kept secret.
Same with other evils, like lying, greed, stealing, abusing the weak, etc.
Humanity, as a whole, has always enjoyed others suffering.
I think we enjoy it, even though we know it's wrong, because we all want the power to control our reality.
No perfect being will come and change this instinct. Only we individuals can, and that's only if we face our fears. Without fear, we wouldn't have the desire to hurt others, because we will already feel in control.
You could be right, a messiah could be coming from China, but he will be like the others before him. A messenger, reminding humanity to not be afraid.
