Mankind has a short memory. We’ve all heard this before. But seldom do we see better example of it than when we are left to hear, mostly from liberals or liberal groups or organizations, that the world is a terrible place with terrible people. We make war on each other. We kill people constantly for no good reason. People are abusive of the environment and are destroying the earth. And global warming or nuclear war will eventually end it all for all of us.
So how do we compare to 1943? 1918? 1863? 1698? It will surprise our perpetually negative Liberal friends and their liberal causes that by nearly any measurement man kind is progressing just fine, thank you. Click on the site below to see exactly what I’m talking about.
Terrorism attacks and deaths are down.
Deaths in war- way down.
U.S. Homicide rate is in serious decline over the past 300 years.
Violent crime of all kinds- down.
Worldwide deaths by severe weather has been on a steady decline since the 1920s.
The rate of Global warming is well below “expert” projections.
Traffic deaths in the U.S. – down.
Infant mortality way down steadily since 1940.
The cancer rate is in decline and the number of cancer survivors is steadily climbing.
Life expectancy in the U.S. has gone from 71 years to 78 in the past 40 years.
and perhaps most importantly…
Thanks to the spread of Capitalism worldwide poverty has dropped from more than 50% and is approaching a 2015 goal of only 20%.
Remember all this when you read or hear someone railing against science, Capitalism, the United States, or if they speak to how bad things are compared to the “old days”.
