    20Th century and 21st century/ difference? Which is better?

    I was born in 20Th century and continuing in 21st century,first decade is over of this century.This century is highly polluted, carbonized, with volatile global economic situation.The generation born in this century would face unknown problems.Last century damaged was done due to WW I and WWII ,world was rebuilt and peace and prosperity  is enjoyed by Europe ,part of Asia, USA, Communist bloc .20Th Weather and water resources were normal and lifetime employment in industry and agriculture  was available , people were healthy.
    I was comfortable in 20Th century,21st century more challenges.

    I would say that both centuries are neither good nor bad, they just are as they are. Only the present moment matters. Thinking about past and future is a source of stress, so being happy right here and right now is what people need.

    I agree with you that there are more challenges in 21C. Unfortunately many are not for the good, there is a rise in religious intolerance, lack of morals and respect. Technologically we will continue to advance but we seem to have lost the ability to relax and enjoy the simple things in life.
    Kind regards Peter

    You are right about the challenges we have created for ourselves with carbon pollution.  It's hard to say how much worse we will allow this problem to become before we take effective action; already tens of thousands of premature deaths and tens of billions of dollars of economic loss have occurred due to heatwaves, drought and wildfire exceeding the (former) bounds of natural variability.

    And we may be (gloomily) assured that this become more pronounced.

    Yet the 21st century so far has also seen the biggest political and economic advances by the developing world:  prosperity, wellness and freedom have been markedly on the advance during the new millennium around the world.  Even Africa, the most tormented continent in the post-Colonial era, has seen generally robust economic growth, an increase in democratic functioning governments, and rapidly dropping child mortality--this despite the HIV/AIDs epidemic, the existence of failed states such as Somalia, and festering political sores such as Sudan.  (And despite climatic challenges too--drought has been a real killer in West Africa and the Sub-Saharan area in recent years.)

    It reminds me of Charles Dickens' famous beginning words from "A Tale Of Two Cities":  "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."

    Perhaps that's frequently a good description of the human condition.
