A lot of people wonder about this question. Is the world REALLY cruel, though? If you think about it, sure. In some ways, the world and society has failed over the years. School shootings, hatred, bullying, suicide, and many others. And some may think the world has failed as well. But if you look aside all that, we have created ways to protect ourselves from this hatred, and have found remedies for diseases, invented technology that we couldn't have invented without the world's society, ways to get around easier, houses, curency, we stopped racism and sexism (mostly), and people are still nice to others even though we remember all that hate. Let me know your opinion on this.

The world is a cruel place. Countless numbers of crimes against humanity such as child trafficking occur every single day whether they're shown on the news or not. Although it's easy to look at the heartwarming stories online and see the world as a great place, the simple fact is that there is so much more bad than good in this world.
Regarding your reasons who the "world is good", finding remedies for diseases isn't being "good." That's called self preservation. The creation of new technologies doesn't make the world "good." Adolf Hitler and the Nazis had advanced military technology WW2 but that doesn't make them "good." Also, who says we stopped racism. There's still extraordinary amounts of discrimination (both racial and sexual) going on in the status quo. People all around the world are judged based on their gender and race rather than skill. We aren't even close to equality. In the broad scope of the world, there is so much more evil occurring than good.

With racism still occuring in small communities, it doesn't make it an error in our world and society. The "evil" does not outweigh the good. You only provided further reasoning for my situations, and a little bit more "evil". The goods still come. We have ways to stop the homeless from being homeless, ways to space, nations, sports, talented people, government, ways for people to entertain themselves, and food, drinks, and reliable will, or money to give to people when you die. We have ways to cure the hate, and we are still a growing world and society.

Racism doesn't only occur in "small communities." It's exacerbated by the federal government that's supposed to guarantee equality." The leader of the free world said that Mexicans "are rapists." Furthermore, look at the incidents of police brutality in the past few years and the racial discrimination in our justice system. Brock Turner ( a convicted rapist) WAS RELEASED AFTER ONLY 3 MONTHS. Meanwhile, African Americans such as Michael Brown are being shot in the streets. Also, what do you "we have ways to stop the homeless from being homeless" HALF THE WORLD LIVES UNDER POVERTY. HALF. Furthermore, having ways for people to entertain themselves and willing your money to you kids doesn't make the world "morally good." That's just the advancement of the elite and the ignoring of the poor. You want examples of evil in this world? 20.9 million people are victims of human trafficking. The top 1% has 50% of the world's wealth. In some countries, victims of rape have to marry their rapists.
