The media is lying to you about the supposed horrible state of the world, and we swallow it—hook, line, and sinker. Would you believe that the world is really getting better—and not worse, as you’ve been told?
While the news focuses on homicides, brutal terrorist acts, and warnings about global diseases, they are only telling part of the story. The media promotes anxiety and fear and doesn’t share how life has improved in many different ways.
In this meticulously researched book, J.D. King gathers stories, statistics, and relevant data to prove his point that the world is improving. For example, extreme poverty decreased 80 percent, and life expectancies have more than doubled in the last two centuries.
Written to encourage you during these tumultuous times, Why You’ve Been Duped into Believing that the World is Getting Worse presents a hopeful view of what’s happening around the globe.
