Advances in science and technology and other areas of society in the last 100 year have transformed the way we live as well as postponing the day we die. There is no better time to be alive than now.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
The last century humanity has reached a lot of development in science, technology, medicine and more subjects. All of those have changed lifestyle in our species like for instead, how long human can live at the moment. It has been a great improvement for us; even it is possible that it brings bad aspects as well.
Some years ago, people suffered much health problems that now the medicine evolution has eradicated; or in the past was very hard to travel or communicate with a person living in another country; but in nowadays, we are to go so far in short time, or talk with someone who is living away using cellphones or email. Moreover, life speciation for people has rose greatly among the last years. Then, it is possible to think that now life is better.
On the other hand, people are talking about pollution and world heating as consequences of our new lifestyle, companies and enterprises. In additional, now life is quicker and people have less time to spend with family or friends; so some people call the present as: the isolation age. Then all those elements are part of our present and it is important thinking about it when we are talking about out time averages.
Nevertheless, I have not known another age, and it is impossible to me to be sure about what time is the best or the worst to live. I think that human should adapt to change, enjoy good things and try to improve bad stuffs.
In the final analysis, I believe that each time is different and life is changing with interests and discoveries of society; and it is impossible to know which time is better, we only can use better our resources and to try to take the best to improve our life and our environment.
