How do you see our collective moral and ethical cup? Half full or overflowing with goodness?

    Not to be a bean counter that ignores the evil that is still with us, but if I look strictly at the statistics for what I call the evil markers, crime, death by violence including war, poverty, poor health and
    education; I see them all at the best levels we have ever enjoyed.

    This is in spite of the few places where the stats are backsliding, which ironically includes the U.S., a Christian nation; whose
    education level is going down, along with its moral sense.

    I will let you find whatever stats you might be interested in and will only offer the stats spoken of, at the end of this link.

    I see our cup running over in spite of the vile and immoral mainstream religions that we are maintaining, for God only knows why. We can thank all the gods that the religious are not walking their talk and are following more moral ways.

    How do you see our collective moral and ethical cup? Half full; or overflowing with goodness?

    Morals and ethics vary from society to society so who's are you basing it off of?

    World wide morals and ethics are basically harmonious. We are one species and are as locked into those concepts as much as any other DNA based entity. If you think of the 80 20 rule, we are way ahead of that on the good side. That is super close to 100% as confirmed by social science, at a minimum of 70%. Deviance can't be more than about 3%.

    I also base it on all the stats in the clip as well as the type shown in this link.
