It is hard to say based on self-destructive trends in us. Help are available in several forms. Science is one, not as a system of beliefs taken religiously but as an attitude of the mind. Taken this way, I appreciate the following quote in full:

"One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike -- and yet it is the most precious thing we have" -Albert Einstein

A more attainable question would be: Are the current schooling systems really educating in the scientific attitude of mind?
