Compared to when?
Now than ever before, more people are provided social services by their government.
I think you need to take a look at where we've come from, and where we are.
There was a "freak of nature" moment where the EROI was between 100-30:1, and we had it incredibly well in this country.
Things have changed. For a single generation, we had it better than any other nation at any other time in history.
Now, we look to our parents, and complain, without understanding what has changed.
It's really, so, so, so, so much better than 99.999% of our species evolution in the US (and most of the world)
