Hey man, welcome to ATS, be prepared to encounter some pretty fringe perspectives... there's some good folk on here.
I'm guessing you're coming from a world events point of view? If that's the case I think it has been intensifying a lot of late, there have been
some major world events over the past decade 9/11, Iraq, economic disaster, New Orleans etc, but there's also been a lot of scares that haven't
amounted to much, Avian flu, numerous "false" terrorist events etc, there's also been a major power shift in the US with a black man as president -
I believe this has made the world a little safer.
Not to be patronising, but you're at an age where you're establishing your own roots and footings in the world, leaving education, living away from
family (just my speculation), paying bills etc, so maybe the gravity of world events is coming home a bit more. I gotta say though, these are pretty
strange times and I am worried about my future because of the state of the world... but maybe to balance this, we're able to access a lot more
information than ever before because of the web, so we're bombarded with more news.
