If you had been born an African-American here in 1930, or as an Untouchable in India, the "good old days" would not seem so good. While I'm not a utopian futurist, I really do see some progress in the human condition--in spite of periodic and local regressions into factional fanaticism.

I don't think that my grandfathers necessarily had more (or "heathier" social interaction). One grandfather was indeed a fairly public figure, meeting many people in his pursuit of his long mercantile and political career, but the other was a blue-collar worker in an industrial plant who saw only a few co-workers regularly, and worked such long hours that he had little time to socialize outside his immediate family. I'm sure he would have had a fuller life today--and probably would not have died young, as did his wife, leaving his kids orphans.

Some things do get better.
