here is a good question which was raised in English classes..... "Has it not always been the endeavour of mankind to make a world better than the one we are living in?" Technology has advanced us, sure, but do you guys actually believe that we are more civilized than in the 1880's or even the 1600's? I think that all that technology has done is really creating new and more extreme ways to kill each other, now that we have nuclear bombs and all this unmaned warfare stuff. Perhaps mankind is just naturally violent? what do u guys think?
