    Best answer: The 70s were great years. There seemed to be tons of money around, everyone could afford a good car, jobs were plentiful, wages were good and all sorts of new electrical appliances became available. There was little violence and most people only had to work 40 hours and little overtime. Only one parent had to work and generally mom was home waiting for you with a snack. Mothers cooked nice nutritious healthy home made meals and fat kids were very rare. There was plenty of free time and there seemed to be space. Kids rode their bikes around the neighbourhood without fear of violence or paedophiles. There were no video games or cell phones and people actually talked to each other rather than just looked and played with their phones. Kids played active sport and games and were very healthy. This good health meant there were very few with Asthma or nut allergies and kids looked and were active and healthy. Literacy and numeracy were very high and kids overall were respectful and reasonably well behaved but those school kids who misbehaved could expect several whacks of the cane on the palms of their hands or on their buttocks. Parents divorced rarely and kids had the security of having at least one parent at home all the time. Today many kids miss the important lessons a father or mother teaches them and many kids have strange beliefs of how they are supposed to be. Many boys have this belief they must be tough and able to be violent instead of being decent people. Drugs were not a big thing back then so there was way less psychotic behaviour or crime. There was some air pollution was in the cities but overall the world was way less polluted.
    These days cities are way more crowded and all the spare spaces are not full of housing. Money seems to always be short of what you really need so many families now have both parents working. Kids now come home from school to an empty home and mom brings high caloried fattening take out food as they don't have the time or energy to cook evening meals. Now at least 25% of kids are obese who do no real exercise all heading for an early death because they will never be healthy. Kids tend to be spoiled with expensive electronics and other things as compensation for not having parents around much supposedly as a replacement for the love and affection kids were missing out on. Young people take drugs like sweets not realising the damage they are doing to their health and mental state.
    I feel sorry for the young these days as it is a different world from 50 years ago and young people have much more struggles than years ago. I think country people overall seem to live more the way people should live with less stress and a more active life. Housing tends to be more affordable in the country and people seem to be more friendly and there tends to be way less crime. Country communities seem to work and socialise together whereas many city communities demand the government give them what they need. Many country people set up their own community facilities and community events and the fact they know each other tends to create security in a district that was lost years ago min cities who quite often do not even know the names of their neighbours.
    I believe we were much better off back then and likely the young people of the time likely they were the luckiest generation in history.

    Africans were slaves to Europeans for a little over 200 years. Thats it. Europeans enslaved each other for thousands of years; probably even tens of thousands. European slaves had it much worse than african slaves too. Some slaves in Rome (gladiators) were forced to fight others in packed ancient arenas, in most cases to the death. A disobedient slave might get a death sentence with the cause of death being put in the arena with a couple of lions or tigers that had been starved for an extended period of time prior to the games. This way the animals were automatically in hunt mode as soon as they see someone in the arena. Why feel sorry for blacks who are no longer even alive who were forced to pick cotton? It could have been much worse. There are blacks in America with no slave ancestry. For all you know, you could be directly descended from african chiefs that sold their own people into slavery..
