    We Are Not Who We Used to Be

    We are not the enlightened and all-inclusive society some people claim we are.  Far from it.  We try desperately to control one another but have a dire lack of self control.  We live in a society supposedly advanced, but has so little control over its darkness...

    I don't think it's a downward spiral,

    I just believe that the population is too much for one planet and disaster gets worse as more people unwillingly get caught in.
