    If we take classic definitions of good and bad: Bad is getting stronger and stronger over the years and we have probably went into the zone when it is stronger force.

    I don't want to brake someones idealism but the world as a whole is falling apart.

    I've encountered more bad than there is good but when I do it just makes me think that I must be the actual good that I'm looking for and must continue to be so until I can find it anywhere else in the world.

    I'm a short term pessimist and a long term optimist, any break down will make for something better I'm sure.

    Although I'm inclined to believe that prophets of doom or greatness as all exaggerating one way or another and things will be more mundane, if only because nature and the perennial things endure and could give a shit about vogues or fashions and vanities of mankind.

    Look at all the movements of any description which have prescribed one or another design for life, whether its Aryanism or LGBT, none of its materialised or materialised completely to the satisfaction of its support, its probably for the best too.

    I think they're even and balanced, but I don't believe that there's either absolute good or absolute bad, sometimes there's good in evil and vice versa

    This world is mostly corrupt, rotten, as it shows while it crumbles down slowly. It needs to be reshaped. And people don't do what's necessary for it. Focusing on their short term needs, within their bubbles, rather than the long term results of self destruction. The fear of nuclear war still remains. Things only get worse, and the news itself expresses and emphasizes this sheer negativity.

    Look around. It is obvious.

    However... that being said.

    There is always hope.

    I am pessimistic, but with a distant optimistic bend in terms of hope.

    That's completely subjective. I'd say yes for myself. The bad is just, generally, more obvious.

    The world has improved markedly in recent times. Wars have receded. Social violence has receded. Prosperity has increased in leaps and bounds. And of great importance, child rearing has improved from from authoritarian child rearing to helping child rearing where the child is helped to achieve their life goals.

    Evidence based medicine is improving every day. Science is discovering the most fundamental facts about the Universe from gravity waves to the so called 'God' particle.

    More countries are becoming democratic, for instance, Indonesia, our next door neighbour, and the largest muslim country in the world, has recently become successfully democratic.

    And there are more of us alive today and living longer than any other time.

    Is there any better time to be alive? Yes, the next generation will have it even better.

    I’ve always been annoyed by those cheery “life is good” tee shirts (and hats, bumper stickers—you get the idea). Life is not good. We hurt. We cry. We feel like punching things and screaming at people, or, in all honesty, the other way around. To say that life is good would not be an accurate representation of what it truly is and the pain it holds.

    Conversely, I’ve seen sad faces under rain clouds with a “life is bad” caption, parodies of widespread, generalized optimism. Just as it wouldn’t be fair to label life as good, it’s inaccurate to say that life is entirely bad. We smile and laugh until our sides hurt, see beauty, hear perfect melodies, and enjoy simple pleasures.

    Life is sometimes good. Life is sometimes bad. I think the truthful balance between the two extremes is this: life is life. It just is, and we just are.
    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life
