Since recorded history, since the dawn of man, before the transformation of this modern world that we live in, we’ve witnessed an acceleration of changes, which have formed the current lifestyle we enjoy today. From the primitive humans, just hoping to survive another day, to the discovery of fire and the wheel, to the Internet, we as a civilization has come a long way. This turnover of improvement, especially in technology, has made everyone infinitely more intelligent. With each advancing era, people are exponentially becoming a lot more aware and knowledgeable of themselves, the environment, and what we’re capable of.
8. Ever Improving Technology
What’s improved the most, this especially in the past decade is new and more advanced technology that is getting quicker, smaller, and more affordable. This technology is designed to make our lives easier and more efficient. Computers, the Internet, wireless technology, is perhaps mankind’s most greatest achievements, which most likely won’t be matched for a while.
7. Better Control Over Violence
Although it may not appear that way, the trend is that there’s less violence worldwide. The reason why it appears there’s more, is because there’s more instant awareness of it, this thanks to social media and the Internet. Using the 1990’s as a gauge, there’s less crime in the inner cities, less gang violence, and there’s more control over political violence such as war.
6. Intelligent Pop Culture
Which may sound like an oxymoron, but shows on TV just a few decades ago insulted our intelligent, and was as a result rightfully dubbed the”idiot box.” Pop culture is now trending towards more intelligent content, such as reality TV. Most remember the ’70s and ’80s, and what was offered on TV was just dumb, and there was nothing else on.
