Add to that the global population has doubled over the past 50 years.
We have more people doing things and more ways to see it happen. The rate is probably the same if not declining but the appearance is off the charts.
At this point it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy where people get riled up and believe everybody is losing their minds...ala Sfork, especially when people fear the seven seals of the apocalypse and other Biblical premonitions. They'll do us all in just to spite us based on this perceived chaos.
This world could be so good but you humans just keep screwing things up. Just be nice to the person next to you, that's all you need to do. You don't have to like them but just accept them for being another creature and move on with your own life. It's too short to waste worrying about others.
