You are 100% correct! This is the arguement I've been having with my JW dad for 2 decades. If Satan is questioning Gods right to rule, why is the world so crappy? Wouldn't it be a lavish wonderland full of glitter and unicorns that spit rainbows? Why do JW's claim to be persecuted by Satan AND claim to be in a bullet proof spiritual paradise? I think it's because good and evil have always been, and will always be. JW's over complicate everything. The earth is spiraling out of control because mankind can't unite to accomplish anything and they never will. Modern technology is the only reason why things have gotten worse. There were no AR-15's years ago, so maniacs couldn't kill 26 people in 30 seconds. WW1 was so bad, because soldiers stopped rising horses onto open battlefields. Some unsophisticated armies still did, but for the most part they would dig in and blow each other apart with more advanced weaponry than was ever seen before at the time. 1914 is just like the WT obsession with 1919. They're just dates with no significant meaning. Evil has always been here, as well as good, and is up to us to decide what we decide to do with our 70-100 years on this planet.
My comment is scatter brained, but hopefully some of you will be able to understand my thought pattern.
