I guess you really can't have good without bad, or no conflict without conflict.
I agree, and I wonder, do you suppose we should be grateful for some bad things as through them we appreciate the good?
I always think the thing that would unite the people of earth together would be if we really did find out there was an alien threat that hated ALL Humans. Boy, what a paradigm shift for the world that would be.
Then all humans would unite since we would have a NEW enemy and conflict.
Maybe instead of studying aikido we should spend our time looking for aliens as a means to world peace!
It would probably unite most people, but I'm pretty damn sure that some greedy jerks would try to cut a deal with the aliens by helping them to conquer us all.
So maybe you could hold off on searching for threatening aliens for a while?
