Losing Faith

I’m losing faith in a lot of what I see around me in the world.

Israel is once again in open conflict with Palestinians in Gaza. I’m only 23 years old, and I have lost count the number of times this has happened during my life.
It would appear that Russian separatists in Ukraine have just murdered over 200 people by shooting down Flight MH17.
Greed seems to rule all, as the rich get richer and the poor are demonised and punished for their situation.
Irrationality triumphs over rationality.
Nationalism, racism, fear and terror seem to be winning over inclusivity, multi-culturalism and compassion.
I’m losing faith in it all.
After over 5000 years of recorded history, are we really no better off than we were? Two World Wars. Millions upon millions of dead. War. Disease. Famine. Genocide.
And we are still no better off.
I truly worry for my future, and for the future of every rational, good person in this world.

Apologies for the maudlin nature of this post. I’m just so fed up.
