Even though I wasn't born then,I would gladly swap my "modern" life for how those folks lived back then,sure there was still the startings of a
military industrial complex,but it wasn't yet all pervasive as it is now with CCTV and facial recognition on every damn street corner.
Sure there were still gangs,but compared to today,they were like choir boys.
People were left to get on with life without getting contant hassle for not moving their lawn/building a shed in the wrong place etc.
Of course there were problems back then,like the treatment of african americans-but that hasn't yet gone away-even though we are told it has.
Now the government/authorities will treat ANYONE like crap,black white or whatever.
Equal opporunity oppression is todays game sadly.
And we call todays wold "progress."when we can get tasered to death for crossing the road in the wrong place or locked up for making a joke on
Has all of our technology really helped the world and its people?
We are always promised it would,but I have my doubts.
How would you rather live?
