It seems like I can’t go a day without reading, seeing, or hearing about a depressingly sickening news story. People are shooting up movie theaters for absolutely no reason. Senior citizens are getting stabbed on the subway just for asking rowdy girls to quiet down. Infants are getting molested and killed. What the hell is going on with the world?
I really don’t remember hearing such sickening stories this frequently before. It’s really an everyday thing now. It’s a shame and it’s also quite scary.
Were people always this sick in the head? Was there always such a blatant disregard for human life? Or is that people were always crazy and thanks to faster traveling information it’s just become more obvious? Is it a little of both?
If you ask me I’d say the break down of community is probably a major factor. People are treating each other more and more terribly. People are becoming more and more isolated. Ergo people are placing less and less value on their own lives as well as the lives as others. I noticed suicide is another thing I’m hearing more and more about these days. It’s really sad when you think about it. But that’s just my theory.
What do you think? Were people always this crazy? Or is humanity really just becoming more and more cruel?
