"Back in my days..." the old man exclaimed, "everything was better"

I stopped listening, laughed to myself about the stupidity old people posses.

"Pff, how can they be so stuck in the past and crying about it?" I thought. While I poured up my 20 year old whisky, and prepared for a game of Quake II.

The old days were never better, just a different time. There were better moments compared to today, but the innocence of the time was just as deadly as the worst of today.

Of course I miss those memorable moments, but I wouldn't go back in time to relive them without the best of today's knowledge, medical, and tech, going with me.

Saying the old days were better is just another way of expressing being lost in change that can't be stopped.

The best at describing it.

The simple truth is being this way is in our genes. We can work to be better, but as a whole our species will always be this way, allowing fear, greed, and ignorance to drive self-preservation and interest over the greater good.
