My gd was telling me tonight how the country is going to hell. I told her I disagree. Obviously there is much division politically, but I feel like the us and the world especially is so much more developed and better than it was in the 90s.

Social media and 'sharing' is making us feel worse. Why does negative news cause clicks? Remember the 90s? Bosnia, Iraq, even south Africa and the Philippines. There are less dictators today. There is more freedom in the world. Yes, there is political strife and disease, but the absolute horror those counties experienced has subsided.

I think you're right.social media is making thing worse .

I grew up without social media. It's was the three networks. ABC ,NBC and CBS, we were fearful of a nuclear holocaust .Russians were armed to the teeth as well as us . It was a very scary time to be a kid. Nuclear Fall out shelters were built around the country.We were taught in school how to duck under our desks in case of an nuclear attack .not that it would help...but we were kids. 

Imagine if that same scenario was happening today.

The absolutely real threat of the entire population of the earth being wiped out in a matter of hours or days depending on location.  It was a real thing for us.

Social media is making things seem worse. 

Maybe this is what you meant.

The overall worldwide "human experience" continues to improve. Just as it steadily has since the dawn of man.

Critique is only as good as the knowledge of that which is being criticized.

It's "woke" to know all 317 genders #sciencequestionmark

It's kookism to point out the irrefutable fact that practically all of us have surrendered our God given Rights. #changethesubject

So yeah, take all my Rights, and my property, just don't misgender me MF!!! #priorities
