    You can't presume, things will always get better! The current sly attempts by our scumbag political class to destroy the state old age pension system, could well land countless senior citizens down the line in 4th world level poverty for their twilight years!

    We keep on hearing about how great the likes of Sweden is.

    We are moving towards their pension model.

    Careful what you wish for.

    The bottom line is things improve in life due to Engineers and Scientists.
    I would agree generally although the human condition itself probably does not change so much. No one in the future will ever meet or see a white rhino and most likely many other species.

    3 in 4 Irish teens have tooth decay

    Now obesity is a big problem when it used to be malnutrition.
    On almost every measurable aspect, Irish quality of life has improved enormously since the 1940s.

    And where stuff can't be measured so easily the improvement is obvious. Feckin everywhere.

    But the figures on life expectancy put it in a nutshell.
