    You misspelled the word in the headline as “Melorism” —
    Next Wednesday’s word should be “irony!”
    Irony: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.
    ;-)

    Kinda embarrassing, is the word spelled wrong or are there 2 different spellings of the word?

      The opposite being made worse by human effort? Or made better by being untouched by human effort?

        I’d say pejorism if it’s the first case, pelorism if it’s the second.

        On the other hand, if it’s to mean the world may NOT be made better (or worse) by human effort, then “ironically” it could in fact be, as originally titled, melorism.
