May you live in interesting times" is an English expression purported to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse. While seemingly a blessing, the expression is normally used ironically, with the clear implication that "uninteresting times" of peace. Despite being so common in English as to be known as the "Chinese curse", the saying is apocryphal, and no actual Chinese source has ever been produced. The most likely connection to Chinese culture may be deduced from analysis of the late-19th-century speeches of Joseph Chamberlain, probably erroneously transmitted and revised through his son Austen Chamberlain. We actually live in incredible times. At no time in human history are we surrounded by abundance even amidst economic upheavals, security and freedoms despite looming wars and silly draconian laws, con . but instead of worrying about such, consider living life to its fullest each day as if without end, yet with clear conscience as though giving account for it tonight. Only reason I mention this - end of the world comes to every human being at the point if their death, it becomes therefore pointless to try to divine the end date of civilization on the planet Earth. . I mean, what good is it to know next month the asteroid will pulverize the Earth, when tomorrow I get hit by a bus and that's it for me? What will have worries of cosmic billiards done for my living and expressing gratitude for today, nevermind potential tomorrow.. But yeah, we do live in incredible age unlike any previous generations could have imagined. We have abundance despite many fixating at the super-sized glass half empty portion, we have security despite small minded chicken-littles' screaming sky is falling, we have so much to be grateful for yet we are taught to grumble..
sunamis and earthquakes have always taken place. Greeks and other Mediterranean nations have always messed up their economies. Gangs have always attacked each other in the big cities. Britain has always had civil unrest in years ending in 1. . Bankers have always been greedy. Politicians have always been corrupt. Boybands have always been mediocre singers at best. And the planet has always warmed up or cooled down since time immemorial. . What I would say though is that it seems that the world is going crazy, because we have more news and reporting now than we have ever done. 24-7 we are bombarded with images from around the world (often negative) and things which would once have had only a brief mention in the rubric of the news, now get a 3 minute item dedicated to them. . Everything now has a 'severe weather warning' attached to it, whereas twenty years ago that would only have been reserved for hurricanes and such like.

This is why we have seen so many different socio political changes happened in such a condensed space of time, and also why an invention such as the Internet has mushroomed in the way it has. It has, quite simply, revolutionised the way we live and work and will continue to do so. . With this knowledge and these tools put to good use, the world will be able to change for the better, and they are symbolic of that. . They are the seeds being put in place for the better world which has been coming in since the cosmic moment on 21st December 2012. People skewed this as the end of the world but it wasn't necessarily so. It was the end of the world as we knew it, and from that moment on, new energies and thought forms would gradually pervade the human consciousness, but it just wouldn't be instant.

If you happen to had the money to lead a civilised existence in Britain, you continue to wouldn't be free from the lack of knowledge or mankind. I know that the uk paints a valiant snapshot of brave explorers and innovators and the lot however i do not suppose for one second that these humans have been rather as noble as you image them. In any iteration, there are grasping men and women of all socioeconomic phases..
There are rough folks, impolite, ignorant men and women at any time in history. In case you dislike the current pattern on the earth a lot then why don't you spark off on a course to try and alter it.

I assume it's readily a topic of expertise. . I notice that youngsters are usually higher once internationalized. It can be the localization of the final formative years that breeds such things. Just an opinion. They do not see alternate or something new or valued at considering. They've certainly not needed to consider broader than their small nearby. In phrases of normal values, i am pondering of doing anything alongside the identical route. . I am Korean although and my concerns need to do inside my country. The reversal of the bad factors of modernization and the variation of usual culture and values right into a modern setting. And i'm going to do it by way of architecture and concrete Planning. Do what that you would be able to on your country. I did are living in the UK when I used to be a kid and that i notice the teenager predicament is particularly prominent. .
