Is Humanity really any more civilized today than 1000 years ago?

Is Humanity civilized?

When I hear religious group A say that all of religious group B are bad, and then religious group B in return say that all of religious group A is evil, it is a reminder that despite smelling better, living longer better and having more shiny things, humanity really hasn’t come that far since the Dark Ages.

Today, millions of people are displaced on every continent – struggles in Syria, Ukraine, Thailand and all over Africa only help to underline the extent of human suffering caused by other humans.

Something must be done to take humanity to a new level of understanding where one group identifying another as their enemy and rationalizing their oppression as somehow justified based on moral or economic measures is not acceptable.

Here’s hoping for peace and goodwill for all of humanity.
