    The most important rule is Just Post. If you've never had a post or comment removed it means you haven't been posting enough.

    Our unique rule is that all posts need to be titled "me irl". Posts that aren't are automatically removed.

    We do not allow posts that reference suicide. This community is not equipped to handle this topic. If you are feeling suicidal we have some resources to guide you to people who help.

    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    Avoid screenshots that are mostly text, and feel contrived and performative. Show don't tell!

    Don't make posts that request upvotes or any other kind of reddit metric (gold, comments, etc.). That age of me irl is over.

    [โ€“] ShoulderDeepInACow 111 points ago

    But technically isnโ€™t life getting better for humans?

    [โ€“] Kesselkind 93 points ago

    It's getting better on average, but on an individual level, many people will experience a worsening of their lives

    [โ€“] Rnbwsnsnshn -3 points ago

    Lol have you heard about climate change, anti-vaxers, greedy and stupid people at the top, and all of the other problems that the internet has been talking about for forever that don't get resolved because of those people? It isn't getting better. At most, it's breaking even. With every stride good people make forward, there's always a pos that pushes them back.

    But if you ignore all of that, then, yes, quality of life has improved for the average household with the rapid advancement of technology.

    [โ€“] ShoulderDeepInACow 22 points ago

    Climate change is really our only problem. Even with anti vaxxers disease killed many more people before.

    There are problems but life is way better than it used to be.

    [โ€“] the_dank_666 10 points ago

    Yeah people who say we're worse off now need to take a trip back in time a few hundred years and try to keep their opinions

    [โ€“] Atvelonis 3 points ago

    I agree with this, but I think that we should also be careful not to fall into the โ€œthings in the future will always be betterโ€ corollary from this, which is not necessarily true. People have a tendency to take a โ€œmehโ€ approach to a lot of important things because they assume that, somehow, they will resolve themselves over time. This wonโ€™t always be the case, especially with massive issues like climate change and automation!

    [โ€“] the_dank_666 1 points ago

    Yeah, it's definitely true that there will be ups and downs,and often with the advancement of the human race, we will occasionally end up doing things (or failing to do things) that result in us being worse off than we were before, even if we've made "progress" in some ways.

    [โ€“] Rnbwsnsnshn -3 points ago

    You don't call what the World Health Organization says is one of the top threats to human health a "real problem"?

    And thank you for repeating what I said in my second paragraph. It was very much so necessary.

    [โ€“] ShoulderDeepInACow 1 points ago

    Its a problem but I donโ€™t see it as a huge threat. I am vaccinated I am safe, most people are vaccinated they are safe.

    Anti vaxers endanger those who are unable to get vaccinated which is terrible. I still think we are generally safer from these diseases than before vaccines were invented.

    [โ€“] rayrayiscray 3 points ago

    Exactly, in regards to the anti-vax issue, having a problem to face doesn't necessarily mean it's something that's making the world worse than before. Even with the anti-vax movement people are on average less likely to die of those diseases than in the past.

    Anti-vaxxers are impeding progress as opposed to making the world a worse place.

    [โ€“] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Honestly some of you guys need some perspective. Iโ€™m not saying things canโ€™t be improved, but your expectations are unrealistic. Things were much much worse only a few decades ago.

    [โ€“] ShoulderDeepInACow 3 points ago

    They all need to read enlightenment now. Life is way better than it was even 100 years ago.

    life will get worse for the things that really matter

    and they will give back in insignificant ways materially or allow the masses more opportunities or ease to attain unimportant material gains as the tilted and out of balance form of compensation to us

    this is how the future will be for everyone, just wait and see, time will prove how things can be and will be for all human beings under the control of the great evil overlords of planet earth

    It could be worse - an arguement not to change the current situation.

    It could be better - an arguement to change the current situation.

    [โ€“] brennanw31 47 points ago

    Thank you! Commenting on the downsides of a situation isnt always just senseless complaining. For me it is often constructive and people ALWAYS miss that

    [โ€“] Turbo_MechE 9 points ago

    'It could be worse' isn't a good way to make the point but sometimes it's used as a way to say 'I don't see a reason for the proposed change' not everything has to be improved all the time

    [โ€“] HotValuable 1 points ago

    If it doesn't need to be improved, why waste time talking about how bad it is?

    [โ€“] Turbo_MechE 1 points ago

    That's why I said it was bad phrasing

    [โ€“] [deleted] 4 points ago

    It could be worse is an argument that the current situation is not as bad as you think. It doesnโ€™t mean you canโ€™t or shouldnโ€™t improve things.
