As bad as it may be today, it absolutely better than yesterday. modern civilization is progressing in many aspect of life.
we have better knowledge
better way of life (though most people are still primitive)
better association and understanding among our self (though most people still don't agree).
better unity.

the only problem we have right now is population, in the past war cut down number of people around the world.
the earth is becoming saturated but their many ways to cope population and we are heading their.

so yes we are progressing

It's declining.

You have people begging to get offended at the slightest thing...

Also men are turning into little bitches while females are becoming overtly masculine in their behaviour.

It's doomed.....





I would not agree with your opinion, it is changing, but not declining. What is available today, was not available ever before, time is sliding faster, there is a daily change within society, older generation cannot hold pace with innovations...
If you look at fast development, oil rich countries you can see people that were born without electricity, and now enjoy full innovation treatment with 5G network, Blockchain government, 500m+ highrise buildings, that is not easy to keep pace with for 70+ year people..

Our civilization appears to be advancing faster than ever. Yet anyone who looks will see the same.  The more advanced the community, the greater the intensity. Wages and interest fall, while rents rise. The rich get richer, the poor grow helpless, the middle class is swept away.
When the disparity of condition increases, democratic elections make it easy to seize the source of power. Many feel no connection with the conduct of government. Embittered by poverty, they are ready to sell their votes to the highest bidder or follow the most blatant demagogue. One class has become too rich to be stripped of its luxuries,Another class is so poor that promises of a few dollars will outweigh abstract considerations. A few roll in wealth, while the many seethe with discontent at things they don't know how to remedy.

Shit... I would imagine that members of the cryptocurrency community would be able to recognize that we are progressing as society. Do you guys not believe that blockchain is the next evolution of technology??

going back a few millenia.. people followed kings and barons.. back then they knew about evolution of caveman to human
the story of adam and eve was a meander of explaining how the thyroid gland (apple shaped gland in the neck) which we call the adams apple makes the differeince between a cretin(dumb passive-aggressive entity with physical deformaties) to become civilised problem solving smart healthier entity..

move forward a couple millenia..
people follow kings and government. but know less about evolution. some think we are born from energy of the universe or made from devine beings made in our image.. even hitler had his armies re educating the world about the function of the thyroid gland with all his experiments. even now people dont realise the flouride, chloride, bromide impact the thyroid gland and happily accept poisoning ourselves with flouride water and chlorinatd chicken ecause our kings and governments say its good for us.

as for relationships
(note: i love sex and would never had held out till after marriage, and im agnostic. but im well researched )
100 years ago many people waited to have sex after marriage or 'courted' for months before getting laid. now with tinder and other dating apps,its all one night stands and aids,crabs, and lots of different fluid excretions due to it. so again we have took a step backwards in terms of being civilised.
aids, one night stands, STI's, children of single parents(bastards) has gone full circle. again millenia ago they knew about aids, gays, random sex, deadbeat dads and made laws(the bible is just a lawbook/campfires stories to teach the uneducated in a way they could understand about evolution) which meant to have originally taught people of evolution and having safe sex, but ended up lost in transation where its now thought as a religion where the stories have and will continue to change


things like street lights. did you know the first street light was invented in the middle east a millenia ago.. but that same regions is now left as rubble and treated like cave dwelling savages(if you watch fox news(note sarcasm))

if you think we are free from the kings and barons taxes and higway robberies..we are not.
taxes still continue. and border police very often seize funds for no reason than it being over $10k. or fine people just for parking on what amounts to be nothing more then a yellow line paintd on the edge of a road.

technology
even as far back as cavemen. we have always been looking to make tools to make our lives easier, faster, more efficient, to then be more lazy. so yes although technology moves forwards civilisation and the pursuit to find tools to do things for us has not changed so we have not even after thousands of millenia got to a point where everything is provided for us and we need nothing more.

in finance
in crypto, the new kings are the developers. setting the rules making changes mandatory or soft trojan without civilised conensus. and the barons(tax collectors) are the pools and offchain hubs. we foolishly belive our king developers that this new technology of independant PUSH payments cant work and the next generation of tech is to go back to lockng value into vaults and then just passing around unconfirmed unaudited receipts where there is a requirement of other people signing accepting alongside us.
so finaance is just full circling /unchanged. even though the medium has changed. then end result has just gone full circle

summary.
yes the method has changed over the millenia. but civilisation is still the same. it just goes in circles we learn something. go along with it for a few generations, the next generation get bored/revolt/want soemthing new. a new method is tried, the old method is forgotten or twisted into 'tales' /stories where the message is mis-translated. another generation passes and get bored, changes. and eventually the underlying path goes back to the first path.. a cycle that just goes around repeating and repeating.

Do you believe that in ancient times (like a thousand years ago) people had a better living, or were wiser, braver, or had any special knowledge?  Suffered less or more? Had better social order?  I am looking forward to hearing your opinion and arguments and strongly appreciate links to relevant academic articles and books you can advise.

I think the reason why some people think the older generation is better is because internet and smartphones and all those high technology gadgets we have now were not invented yet during their time. While we spend so much time on our smartphones and computers, they were busy interacting with each other face to face. Technology wise we are way more advanced, and if we only learn to communicate personally, our generation will be much better, I think.

the last attempts of the fallen to survive... they AI is like a boa on them... they may win a little, but don't forget, it was just the snake letting them have a little more space to get to the best spot before the "final breath"... and then the slow exhaustion of each o2 molecule... and soft again.

I think that we are just developing so fast in a good and a bad way at the same time, so time will show what we could do with our civilization, i hope that we will go more in this better way.
