past few weeks, with Snowden, Greece slowly becoming something akin to nazi-Germany, and now Egypt's military coup... maybe I've just started noticing it more recently, but things really seem to be getting out of hand. There's a bunch more shit I've been hearing too, but not sure how accurate it is so I wont bring it up yet, need to do some more research first.

No, it sucks right now but things were worse. We're collectively better off today than even back in the 70s and 80s with their military dictatorships. Still doesn't change the fact though that shit that Greece and other states are doing are awful. There has been a dramatic rise in fascist groups across Western Europe within the past 10 years.

We just hear about things more I think.
Remember when Sars and Swine Flu was the end of the world?

^ yeah but I never really believed it. Plus those were only like 1 thing. Its this culmination of stuff thats got me thinking. Ive also noticed a much bigger distrust towards the government (not party related- in general).

Somehow, somewhere, injustice is being committed by personal corruption for too many reasons to count. It's business as usual. You can argue things were worse in the early 1900s with the Great Depression, a little later on with the world wars, et cetera. Atrocities can hardly be compared to one another without cheapening the individual effect they had on their victims, or the conquest of the conspirators.

The wheel turns. It is the way of things. We are not going to hell, but a very popular line comes to mind.

"Power corrupts."

I imagine since the hand off there have been some attempts at negotiations from South Korea to integrate its technology in North Korea's territories as a gesture of cooperation. I don't remember how well that was going, but it was a start, almost like the Cuban scare during the Bush administration when everyone thought Castro was going to kick the bucket.
