    Well i was thinking that it was nicer back then than now. In the 1800's USA had about 250 murders per year. Now there are 280+ murders in just Washington DC alone. So i wounder it it getting or going to get better or worse? if worse i dunno whats its going to be like?

    how many slaves were killed....

    in the late 1700's into the early 1800's there was nearly genocide of the native americans.

    maybe from a white persons perspective, it was better back then.................................................

    the answer to the question is yes and no, yes it is getting better in some areas in the world, and no it isn't in others

    edit: GuitarGuru, get rid of that f**king confederate flag

    Especially the ape's :P

    Anyway, Its mixed. Terrorism, Extremists stuff like that never really existed.. I mean, image a car-bombing or plane-jacking in the 1800's? [lol kart-bombing and bird-jacking]

    So it really depends, there are more murders today, but there was slaves earlier. Today there is much multi-culturism, but there was pure discrimination back then.

    Its completely mixed.

    You also haven't taken into account the level of population growth over the past 200 years

    I think as long as there is pride in our spirits it will never get better. To many people thinking there better than the next. We will most likely end up a 3rd world country in the next 30 years or less.
