Is This the Best of All Possible Worlds?

Is this a joke? Our world, with its vast evils, the 'best possible world'? It seems absurd. Yet some do claim that ultimately our world will be the best possible world, because the sum total of all the good, primarily generated by human free will and divine providence, will overpower all the obvious evils. Perhaps the calculus should include the entire cosmos?
