Check out the Business Insider set of graphs showing how much better things have gotten in the last few decades or the last century.
A few of my favorites:
- Democracy’s in. Autocracy’s out.
- People used to die at 47. Now people are living to 77.
- Infectious diseases in the U.S. are pretty much gone.
- It’s never been cheaper to fly.
- Or safer
There has never been a better time to be alive.
