I don't mean to be a pessimistic and apathetic.
But, I do think that the world is indeed in ruin.
I don't know what the hell the world in the past, if chaotic as now or in better condition.
That's why I love old school movies, because it can shows human condition in the past. And well, not much different from now anyway, there are much better and there is more bad.
But, looking current conditions, which from all aspects of life, is a mess. And who knows? Maybe, the world might be destroyed soon.
Although I obviously wouldn't know when. It could be that I become the people who witnessed the destruction of the earth, maybe not. I still hope the latter. I was already dead before the earth is destroyed. It's okay if my end time is near, as long as I die in a good state.
Why so selfish?
Anyway, chaotic and destruction of the world doesn't mean make me want to be silent and only be spectators. I want to help saving the world. Who doesn't? With so many movies that inspires us to do more and take part to save the earth. And there are loads of fictional super hero that created and become signal that there is still hope for the world.
So, choose your path and make your own move to save the world. Even if it is just a tiny little bits step.
