No, but I was sent here from the planet Xzsrewxsweiurkzx 4000 earth years ago, and my tour of duty lasts another 2000 years, so I have no choice.

this world can't be better than it is right now
no rose colored glasses here this world stinks from the stink of man kind
there is no evolution for man kind on the whole
people will never get any better than they are
there is only evolution for a few but only if they work on self evolution
for these few by changing themselves become bothered less and less by the machines called people

the next better place to live would be the sun good luck at pulling that one off

I beg to differ! World can be better we just need to wish and do something to achive improvements. One thing that needs fix is current system.

The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it."

Hate to break it to you, but if there was nobody living on planet earth you wouldn't be alive to enjoy it.

For myself, I think that we need to stop building up big cities and instead spread out into smaller hamlets and villages. Major cities are part of the problem in our planet. In short, we need to decentralize and move back to the farm.

Not that I am saying that we should all be farmers, there will still be place for factories, stores, military, and yes, even computer geeks like us.

Would you be happy that we would have another place to live and travel to|from or extra happy because you wanted to live there long time ago leaving this mess behind or sad because that would probably won't help fix current planet? There are a lot of discussions about negative side of this story(disasters, alien invasion, punishment of God(s) etc.) already so why not speak about positive side of this story instead?
Earth is dirt and pollution. Full of.

I forgot... corruption too.

I can't say I enjoy it -- I ought to since I'm well fed, had a good free education and live in a relatively safe country with moderately good services.
However, I am both intellectually aware of the hate and hopelessness that fills this planet and emotionally aware of having not much in common with most people -- neither of which I believe can be solved without my removal (still leaving the main issue:-P).

About the age of 10 or 11 I saw a sci-fi movie at the neighborhood theater that I do not remember the name of. The plot entailed aliens placing lots of satellites around our planet. The hero, a scientist, had to figure out the right code to send to the satellites within a week to stop them from wiping out the whole entire human race. At the end of the movie, in the nick of time, the scientist discovered a code. It was not the code to shut down the satellites; it was the satellite code that caused all the earth's evil people to fall down and die.
