Is this a sign of aging? I genuinely remember the 1960s as being a positive time, at least a time heading in the right direction. Yes, that might have been because of my middle class existence in a wealthy western country. It's as if we finally saw the light on civil rights, but now at 68 years old, it seems like we are unraveling. I'm not trying to exclusively be US centric. How do those outside the US feel about the general status of the human species? It feels to me, living in the US, that it's all falling apart.
