Today at the end of class we ran out of time discussing whether we would rather live now or 100 years in the past, and i would like to re open discussion. Personally, i believe that modern times are a much safer and more agreeable time to live than 100 years ago. With advances today in things such as medicine, security systems, firearms which can be used for protection, research, time saving, and so many others. Only 100 years ago, cars were only beginning to emerge, and other things we take for granted such as the factory system, television, and refrigeration were barely even conscious ideas in the heads of great innovators. Modern times are definitely better than 100 years ago.
