Why is the news always bad

What is wrong with the world we are the most intelligent animal on the planet and what has we created a world that is crawling with us at the expense of all other animals.
Lots of our countries are suffering from greed and smugness where others are starving and dying from sickness that could easily be cured but the don't have the drugs to treat them.
We have to be kinder to each other and look on each other as ourselves, treat others as you wish they would treat you but don't let them use you and fight back if they are trying to control you, easier said than done but we must try.
Why is it that truly evil people seam to get away with the evil things they do and why does money rule the world it's only little bits of paper with pictures on it.
I can't solve the world problems but maybe together something can be done to make things better
for everyone not just a few.

  1. I understand what you say , it is a sad world when some have so much and others so little, and the ones that have so much could help things change on such a grand scale, sometimes its over whelming, take care of your back, , I hope you feel better soon,

    1. Maybe things are not so bad there is still a lot of good in the world and as this is the only planet we have got we really do have to make it work.

  2. I despair of the human race at the best of times, and it is because of 'us' (the cancer of the planet) that the news is always bad.

    I constantly shake my head in dismay, but what can we do? Like you say, you and I can't save the world - BUT, we can try - it just takes one person after all to make a difference - or so I would like to think...

  6. I couldn't agree more. I dislike how money rules our country. But I will always believe that there is far more beauty and good than evil. Thank you for putting good out there!!!

    1. There is so much importance on how much you have not on how much you need, if it was not so much of a competition we could share more.

  7. And I am adding to the chorus of agreement. Sometimes (often) I am ashamed to belong to the human race. Which isn't fair - there are people who do a great deal of good. They just need to be celebrated more.

    1. I'm not able to move much today my back is playing up so I've been listening to the radio and there is no good news, we should have more of the good stuff not only the bad.

    Ditto all before - the plain fact is, each must first look to their own conscience and keep actions in line with that. Setting the example is the very best we can manage on the individual basis. When groups of such individuals come together, things can be made better. In pockets. Getting the entire Human Race to come together. That would be priceless... YAM xxx

  11. We can only do the best we can. I don't have much myself, but I make small donations to an organisation that directs money to third world countries and helps to supply clean water, the purifying tablets to clean drinking water, mosquito nets to help stop the malaria plagues, education to women and children in areas where this is often denied them by the men who rule. Because I don't have much, but they have so much less and much more need.
    If wishes were dollars, we'd all be rich.

  12. A number of gorillas were killed by poachers in The Congo quite recently. Local villages carried the heavy and dead bodies on sticks and ropes away from where they were killed and gave them a decent burial. It is an example of evil and of goodness. Generally goodness and care for fellow humans and animals prevail.

    Humans are quite smart animals. The goodness in them will win.

    We can only try, and hopefully the good will outway the bad.
