Crap

There is so much crap happening at the moment. Political uprisings, wars, massacres & disasters are occurring all over the world. People I know, personally, are dying.
Are these things happening more regularly?
As I’m getting older are more people I know likely to be diagnosed with life-threatening/terminal illnesses? Or am I being told about them more often?
Am I paying more attention to the news, on tv, in newspapers, or via the internet? Is it ‘easier’ to find out about disasters & wars? Are we being told about them more than we were?
Or is there genuinely more crap happening? Is it going to get worse over time?
I can see that, as I (and my friends/contemporaries) age, we’ll be more likely to die within a certain timeframe (‘On a long enough timeline, the
survival rate for everyone drops to zero’ – Fight Club). But globally? I don’t know.
Which is worse, the certainty, or the uncertainty?
