Welcome to the BV. You are right, just turn on the TV and all we hear is bad news of some sort. If it isn't real, some of it is really fake news, especially when it is the latest Trump bashing headline. The news embellishes so many stories, they make a mountain out of a molehill, on a minute to minute basis. They went from NK missile launches "may be able" to reach the west coast of the USA, to now making up every city in the nation. Truth is we have no idea if they can reach us, if they even can send it to a target, can not even reenter the atmosphere that we know of. They know very well what we could do to them.
According to some religions this Saturday will be the start of the Rapture, we will see on Sunday I guess.

Did I sleep through the end of the world again? And, nobody even bought me breakfast.
But seriously, the news loves bad news. There is the old saying, "if it bleeds it leads". You can pay attention to that. Or, you can pay attention to the beauty in the world. I believe that due to the internet, we can get bombarded with all sorts of negative news. Yet, in real life, I can walk past a little girl with her puppy.
Many people today didn't grow up in the cold war. They may not know "duck and cover". I live and grew up around mountains that could blow at any time. I had nightmares as a child about the end of the world. Eh...enjoy the moment. We all die. Love your family. Pick what is important. You may be hit by a bus tomorrow.
Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen... - Zbigniew Brezhinsky
