Our grandparents and even our parents keep saying that their times were better than ours but are that really true? This statement has been researched by many researchers and each of them has a new thing to add in. But all in all every coin has two sides and both the sides need to be appreciated first before someone makes a conclusion about something.
Life today is indeed better than what it is because if we look at every field of life such as science, technology, business and tourism, it has gone a long way and development so much that it has made the life of a person much easier. The world has now become so connected thanks to this and people can venture around the globe within a few hours. Also, the laws in a country have been strengthened when it comes to the rights of women and children who were being oppressed 50 years ago. Medical tourism in UAE has flourished around the globe making it easy for people to travel abroad for medical reasons. Another thing to bring to note is that thanks to technology now people can save a lot of time for example 50 years ago house chores like sweeping took a long time but now thanks to cleaning machines it can be finished within a couple of minutes.
Even the education sector is now stronger than before and it caters for various courses such as first aid courses, beauty course and even mechanical engineering courses to cater for the skill and talents a person holds. Deadly disease such as polio and malaria has now been eradicated in many parts of the world thanks to medical research progress. Forensics has also been a major hit in today’s world and because of this murdered and rapist is more afraid of being caught. In terms of security people are more secured now than ever thanks to CCTV cameras.
On the other hand some say that life was better 50 years ago than today. The main reason is because back then people rarely suffered from depression and cybercrime which are now widespread in today’s world. Also back then the cost of living was in a good ratio but now the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer. Also, the world has become more corrupt and complicated to lead a simple life and one needs to keep up with the rat race to survive.
Looking at the two sides of the wall very good arguments can be made but at the end of the day we all know that thanks to this development that people can freely work and walk on road. People now have so much more in themselves than before.
