I am wandering if the world is getting safer, more dangerous, or is it the same? Some Christian groups say it's getting worse and that we live in the end days.

Some other people say that's not true, they say that it's getting better and that it's the power of media and information technology that is reporting constantly that it makes it look more dangerous.

Where to look for these statistics, whom to trust?

Thanks

The world as a whole is statistically getting safer, there has never been less war, although regionally, it might be getting worse.

The western world is getting marginally less safe as we immigrate hostile peoples from 3rd world nations, while at the same time draconian collectivist attitudes and ideology are becoming more popular, undermining classically liberal and libertarian ideals.
