JWs and others get their energy from a perception that the world is mostly evil and needs to be wiped out and started over.
I read a book long ago which put forth the following propostion:
the news is mostly bad because the world is mostly good.
consider, news being the unusual, the out of the ordinary... the book went on to say if the news were mostly good
we were really screwed....but as long as serial killers, wars, murders, and most forms of violence were shocking, it meant that the world was basically good.
overlooked in the yearly murder stats is that less than 1% commit murders... seeing that 99% are bascially average janes and joes going about their lives trying to eek out a living for their families is not very news worthy, but signficant. no?
