I'm starting to find the world a very ugly place to live.

Are you going on what you see in life? Or what you see on tv? Because they are two different realities, the media creates a totally false reality, one that serves the agendas of PTB, propaganda designed to warp your thinking and make you compliant. If you are getting your world news from them it's not surprising you see the world in a negative light.

I agree with you the news are the power of every state in the world is just brainwashing to keep the entire population worried about staying in power and making believe that they are the saviours of the homeland and make forget..... the true values of life.

I agree with the OP.  Quality of life is steadily trending downward.  I think the drop began around 1986.  Try to enjoy what life you have left.

Humans have a remarkable ability to adapt, that's what has made us the dominant species on the planet. The coronavirus is what the stockmarket would call a correction. There's more to come, climate change is the death throes of the fossil fuel industry.

Personally,  I am happy where I am, and regard myself as very lucky to have got out of Australia before it reverted to a penal colony.

I guess it depends on whether one is a glass half full or glass half empty person.

Gratitude - I have a roof over my head. I have enough money to not bother about my next meal. I am in excellent health. 

Also "over thinking is the biggest cause of unhappiness" is my motto.

"over thinking".... also known as worrying. I read an article a while back where they were interviewing older folks and asked them "what is the one thing you wish you would have done less of in life". The predominant answer.... worrying. Worrying won't change a single thing other than give you more stress and a shorter lifespan.

"Hang around for another couple of years, see how the ongoing CV19/socialism/communism "agenda" works out"

 

If only there really was such an socialist / communist agenda, the world would be in far better shape if you ask me...

The good ole days are looking better and better.

 

The only thing good about them was that your body didn't ache all the time and girls smiled at you without payment. The rest of life was rather shabby and dull...

It hasn't worked before so I doubt it would work in the future.

 

 

Thatcher had it about right.......................... 

 

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”

No, I have it about right....

"The problem with capitalism is that you eventually run out of other people's money bailing out your mates in the banking racket."
