It's hard to be optimistic after looking at the news, but tho' the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.

Revelation 13 (ESV)
1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea,
with ten horns and seven heads,
with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads
. 2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard;
its feet were like a bear’s,
and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth.
And to it the dragon gave
and his throne
and great authority.
3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound,
but its mortal wound was healed,
and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast.
4 And they worshiped the dragon,
for he had given his authority to the beast,
and they worshiped the beast,
saying, “Who is like the beast,
and who can fight against it?”
