Reasons Why the 21st Century is Better Than the 20th Century

The Top Ten

1 Better Technology

But does better technology really make our lives better? - RecklessGreed

Really? In what fields? - Metalhead1997

2 Better Education
3 Less Wars

You obviously didn't do your research. There's a lot of wars going on right now. - Metalhead1997

Seriously, we are only at the beginning of this century - MrCoolC

4 Better Healthcare
5 Less Racism

Less racism? You think so? I agree with Visitor. There is a lot more racism against white people. A few weeks ago, a black girl (am I allowed to say that) got on the bus, sucked her teeth and said loudly, "Hate this stinkin' bus, too many white people." I wonder what the outcome would have been if it had been the other way round. Racism against white people is getting worse but we just have to suck it up and keep our mouths shut. - Britgirl

The racism today is overwhelmingly anti-white. Apparently, you've not been paying attention.

Really? Where you been for the past
t hree years. Race relations are the worst they've been in over fifty years.

6 Less Sexism

The authentic women's rights movement peaked in the TWENTIETH century, having achieved all rational parity (and quite a bit that is irrational, like 5'2", 105 pound Marines, cops and firefighters).

7 Better Internet

Internet was still YOUNG in the 20th century. It's only been around since 1998, if I remember correctly, or is that Google? - Metalhead1997

The old internet sucks - Neonco31

We don’t typically stick to dial-up connections anymore from what I know or just think.

And how accurate is all that "new information? " Doesn't matter how high you pile garbage. Still gonna stink.

8 Easier to Live

Give me the caring, unselfishness, slower-paced era of the 1940s. Things are far too fast now. Most people are only out for themselves. Heck, things like bus queues don't even exist anymore. It's all "move out my way, I'M coming through" in this era. Self self and more self. "me, myself and I" Awful. Technology may be better but that's about all. - Britgirl

9 Population increase

How is that a GOOD thing? There's something called overcrowding. - Metalhead1997

10 More Music

But a lot of it is bland. - Metalhead1997


The Contenders

11 Popularity of Social Networks

Um, not really. - Metalhead1997

12 Trump is President
13 Better Movies

Proof? - Metalhead1997
