I'm not in your age group
but my response to your query is a resounding 'NO'
When I look back at what my ancestors achieved, I'm a lazy, undiciplined, self-serving, selfish, self-absorbed waste
And I'm far from the exception, in my opinion
I believe the culture of 'Self' is approaching toxic levels
As is the culture of 'entitlement'
The result is all around, in the form of obese, mentally-stunted, semi-literate, over-indulged teens and pre-teens. And unfortunately, these
conditions are not automatically self-correcting as the individual passes through his/her 20s, 30s, 40s, etc.
I see no evidence of the much-touted 'evolution'
Nor do I see in this generation 'an improvement on what has come before'
