Better. We are less superstitious, less dominated by belief systems unconnected with physical reality, more accepting of each other, better organized, less brutal, and less prone to careless use of violence.
On the other hand, our powers hand us greater responsibilities: we are now at a technological level where we can radically degrade the habitability of the planet--for most of its current life forms, at least. (A large-scale nuclear exchange would be a disaster at the global level, and not only for humans. It's less likely than during the Cold War, but by no means impossible.)
Indeed, it's quite possible that we are currently so degrading our planet, through carbon emissions leading to serious climate change. While the public 'debate' continues (funded by Big Energy, among others), the debate among climate scientists is largely over, on the 'big questions'--it continues on important details, such as tightening estimates of climate sensitivity, or improving understanding of how specific regions will be affected by probable changes.
So, though many things are much, much better, both materially and spiritually, there is still a long way to go.
