Lightbulb Better, Worse, or Same?

Okay, let's take a shot at another serious topic. In the last 50 years, do you think things have gotten better, worse, or are relatively the same? Why or why not? I personally think everything is pretty much the same. While technology has gotten more advanced and we have gotten close to curing some diseases, other new (Or old diseases that had seemed to be gone, but are at large again) diseases are coming up. When it comes to relations between nations, some have gotten better, while others have gotten worse. Technology is greater, but we seem to be depending on it more heavily now. What do you think?

It's debatable, but I think life is better now than it was 50 years ago. Unfortunately, we still have many of the same problems as we used to, but we've made plenty of advances in many areas such as medicine and human rights (except in the area of world peace, that's as bad as it always was). Not to mention technology- Hooray for the personnal computer and TVs that aren't in black-and-white!

Talking Re: Better, Worse, or Same?

Ahhh!!! The topic is too serial and will make my head asplode.

Yea, it's debatable and can be examined from many different angles. On the one hand, as Coolguy mentioned, we have made great strides in medicine, human rights, technology, etc. (at least in many parts of the world). But on the other hand, I'm 95% sure that our human condition will NEVER allow us to bring about world peace - it just ain't gonna happen. And I also think that this generation is terribly desensitized (unfortuneatly, mainly BECAUSE of the advances in technology, at least what it's used for) and the most cynical one yet.

It has gotten way better in some ways, and much worse in others.

Honestly, I'd say it's really no different. Yeah, technology's advanced, but people are still roughly living lives as they always had since...humanity's beginning.

I personnally feel that humans have become way too lazy these days, and depend too much on technology.
I haven't got much else to say, to be honest. 50 years isn't actually that long-a-time period. Although, it has seemed to me that America has gotten involved in too many wars as of late.

They've been involved in 2. The Vietnam one, and the Iraq one.

I think it's better now. If I lived 50 years ago, I would be bored to death.

From the first years of life, we have been getting better. Here is on example for 1900-1950, think about coca-cola. Most of you should know it. If you dont, ask your family members, like your mom or dad.

Hrrmmm..... many things have improved, many things have gotten worse. For instance, video game legnth and graphics have improved, but it's harder to find good, non-cliche'd games.

Not to mention that it's always used as an excuse by dictators to get in power.

Another serious question: why are people so greedy? Is there a logical reason?
