Because of the universal law of probability balance their never has been a time in history where the creative good has not been offset by the destructive bad. Perhaps what has changed is the frequency of creation and its offset, plus ballooning population size as a magnifying factor and the ever growing threat that at any second a nuclear offset will be the final offset for humanity and its creations — so tension builds and builds.
