I have to admit the world does look more and more stupider these days. It’s also weirdly seems divisive, a trend I’m afraid with the assist of social media, will only increase.
Who knew that in this age of science and technology where one understands that basically we all are humans, the segregation based on multiple identities (colour, sex, race etc.) has increased? What’s more disturbing is the nature of such action, is voluntary. Yes, no one is forcing, steering or putting subliminal messages in your brain. It’s like being ignorant, and being proud of it at the same time.
So you can have a country like US which by the way (no offence to those from US), has overthrown more governments than anyone in the world (Iran, Central Asia, Egypt, Central Africa, South East Asia, to name a few), being led by the buffon, and the rest of the world suffering from the some or other sectarian impulse (OPEC, SAARC, Commonwealth, EU, Shanghai Cooperative organisation, to name a few).
What I see, or anyone with an iota of common sense, is a world more connected; yet divided. A world where allegiance is based not on humanity, but on economic interest, and as a matter of fact is ever-changing. What drives me nuts is the helplessness of the situation that we are in.
So Yeah! If anyone thinks there are good times ahead, call me a cynic, but I only see dark cloud on the horizon.
