Where those issue more or less prevelent in the past?
Was the treatment of mental health issue more nuanced, sensitive and researched now or 50 years ago,?

Would you rather be in the bottom 10% now or 90 years ago.

If you can turn on a tap and get drinking water you are better off than 99.9% of humans who have ever lived. You can bathe in the stuff ffs. You are a very wealthy person and I refuse to believe you can say with any seriousness that you would rather have been born at any other time.

The poor of the past lived with infant mortality as he norm, sanitation a pipe dream, illness incurable.

The rich of the past had to spend a serious chunk of their netwl worth on kerosene and candles: only the very wealthiest of families could have light and read after sunset. Now a light bulb is virtually free to run

People on minimum wage jobs have televisions, free healthcare, running water, appliances, can get a flight to Amsterdam for 40 quid, own smart phones have a plethora of lesuire choices, can talk smack on trfc message boards.

Someone living at the very top of society in the not too distant past would snap swap lives with someone on a bog standard wage now.

Things aren't perfect but you cannot say we've ever had it as good as under liberal free trade and democracy.

Again if you disagree tell me when we've had it better?

Your willingness to turn a blind-eye to the ills of the world today and continue your rhetoric and diatribe, saddens me. Alas, you already have a proven track record on here of trying to sweep things under the carpet or dress them up. You won't change my views and I won't change yours.
Looking forward to your first to football related contribution, unless I've blinked and missed it.
