It's all ones perception. Being in the now/ present is the best place to be.

The "good ole days" really weren't so good, except perhaps in certain ways pertaining to human interactions. Many today would be utterly miserable if forced to do without cell phones, computers, microwaves, DVR's, etc.

The past was probably better, but im happy that im living in this present

Of course not. The past was the present, then, just as the present will be the past when the future is the present.

Our family past has made our present very good.

I'd love to go back to post WWII just to experience our greatest generation first hand, but I think I'd miss the convenience of technology like we have now.

And anyone could get a middle class job for life right out of high school, thanks to the rest of the industrialized world being destroyed.

I agree! Music was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the poll.

Yes, I love getting a small cut and then dying of tetanus.

the present is always better. always. it's all we have.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Unless you bring the future into play. We haven't seen it yet, but I'd bet my right arm future generations will be amazed how we survived under such barbaric conditions.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I think the "good old times" are a myth. A typical example I always use is music: most of the music released in ANY year is trash, but only the good songs are remembered. Going against today's garbage.

IMO, we never had it better than now, nostalgia nonwithstanding.

In that regard I would say the past times in society were better. Society today, falling apart

Yeah, I remember a lot of crappy songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

Maybe it was just that we did not have world wide instant news so it just seemed better.
