Perception in this world is everything,and nothing is as it first appears.This world is getting worse.
depends on your perspective...
It is a mixed bag. On the personal freedom front, the Western World is actually bringing down the boom on citizens, essentially to make sure that they can bleed them dry to pay for promises the governments have made. But in other places, often ones that would not have been considered by Canadians or Americans or Europeans in the past, now seem to be rather open and appealing.
Definitely worse. No question about it.
It's hard to outweigh the good from the bad...
Slowly getting better.
Better because of inventions you have longer life expectency.
Compared to the history of the world, it's getting better.
But still, that's not saying much. It's all relative. The world is still pretty ****. It's up to you to try to find good in it.
Neither. It's the same as it's always been.
