Life is Better than It Was 50 Years Ago

There have been major medical breakthroughs. 50 years ago, people died undiagnosed and untreated. The discovery of antibiotics, vaccinations, anti-TB therapy, angioplasty and other important medical discoveries, has not only saved millions of lives across the globe but has also improved the quality of life for the terminally ill patients. Transplantation of body organs such as heart, liver, pancreas and kidneys were introduced in later half of the 20th century.
Travelling means have improved tremendously over the last 50 years. With the invention of jetliners in 1958, people who travelled mostly by trains or ocean liners, found a new way to travel, communicate and expand their businesses.

People are more educated about their civil rights and duties. People are now well informed and updated with the advent of the Internet and related technologies. Recent development of social networks has brought people closer to each other from around the world. There is a new and faster trend of sharing news, events, causes and knowledge because of these social networks. There have been many historical crises and transformations that are attributed to the results of Wiki Leaks, ‘Twitter revolutions’ or Facebook communications. Recent events in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt are some of the examples of how technology in general and social networks in particular has transformed the lives of people on a global scale.

However, some people hold the opinion that these advancements in technology have taken the leisure time and quality family time away from them.
