You do speak in so many poetic tones. Which I like.
But I must say that no matter what place of the world we live in we all think these things. I do not watch the news; it depresses me more then I already am. I hear about it from family or friends. But I already know the world is a dark place.
I truly try and make the best of what life gives. For the most part and best of my ability.
In the years of the mind... I will travel, but live on an island in the Indian or Pacific Ocean. And perhaps my mind will be evolved enough that I can travel at will... I would like to live among wonderful animals in nature with only a few close family or friends nearby. I want to be healthy and mindful. I don't need shops etc... just nature. Travel will give me a break if needed.
