In the 10th or 12th century Kings living in castles had no running water, stinky yucky bathrooms without toilet paper, and their transportation was slow, bumpy and uncomfortable.
The average person now has so many advantages over a King then its amazing. We can travel from one end of the globe to the other overnight. We can heat a dinner in seconds with a microwave. We have entertainment on tv piped right into our homes and we can communicate worldwide instantly. Those are only a few things as there are many many more.
If we ignore the past and only look at the present, we are still rich. We can use all of the multi-billion dollar facilities and infrastructure society has built without owning them. Libraries, parks, highways, airports, shopping malls, resorts, beaches, restaurants, recreation, etc. etc.
If we ignore that, we have the greatest opportunity ever right now to earn a living on a computer without leaving home. When I graduated from high school this opportunity did not exist. All we have to do to take advantage of it is learn and grow and work hard.
No matter how bad things seem to be sometimes, life right now is really good.
