What’s Wrong with the World?

The Anchoress reminds us of the greatest answer ever to this question:

Dear Sirs;

I am.

Sincerely,
G.K. Chesterton

The world would be a much better place if we all answered this question in the same way. I doubt anyone could improve on this answer: it sums up an acknowledgement of our own failings and an acceptance that the only person we can control is ourselves. If we really want to make the world a better place, we need to start with ourselves.
