Are you glad you didn’t grow up the time your grandparents did?

Kinda  wish that I did grow up in their time , i'm sad knowing that I'm the last (outer edge) of a liveable generation, People 80 years from now are gonna have extreme rent prices, More homelessness, More demand for houses and food, Atomic bombs that can blow up entire countries (9-11 is nothing compared to what future generations are going to go to experience), 60 years ago when my dad was a kid- the earth had  2 billion people, it has since raised to 6 billion, just imagine 60 years from now when it raises to 20billion, See how chaotic it will be then. Humans are going to kill themselves off in 100 years from now. Climate change, atomic wars, outrageous rent and food prices. There's no possible way that this planet is gonna last another 150 years at the absolute most. I would be surprised 100 hears max, Our grandparents had it way effing better than anything that the future generations are going to have. 

This generation is the outer fringes of a liveable era as ive mentioned, I'm glad that I'll be gone in 30-40 years before things become super bad. I yearn for the future generations, especially since they are going to experience catastrophes 6,000x worse than what happened to the twin tower.

Not really.  I actually loved growing up in the 50's and 60's.  I lived with my grandparents much of the time, and I had the benefit of their life experiences dating back to the late 1800's.  I loved climbing trees, playing in the dirt, dancing, and singing.  At 73, I still miss those days!
