Andrew McCarthy Posted over 1 year ago Does life really get better? I think life gets worse before it gets better. When life sucks people stand up and fight to make it better. The pilgrims that first came to America probably really hated their lives when they lived in England but the hope that things could be better drove them to take great risk crossing a vast ocean into the unknown so that they could have a chance at making their lives better. Will life get better with technology? The movies Wall-E and Limitless offer a grim view of the future. I'm sure we will have more stuff in the future but will that really make us happy? Everyone wants to live in a utopia where life is good and no one has any problems but the fact is for humanities entire existence there has always been a struggle between the the majority and the social elite. I think that life will only truly get better when people stop looking for personal gain and start doing things that are good for everyone.
