The same thing we have to admit is that almost all of us are living a more and more comfortable life.
I still remember that I went to school six days per week. How happy  we are now!

Worker rights, unions, alot of capitalists got their kneecaps busted before a fair wage and work week was granted.. In U.S. the organization of unions have been broken up so capitalists now have more leverage over labor.. only labor laws implemented prevent going back to slave days.  200 yrs of labor's struggle against capitalists are slowly being undone.

It is not 1965 in the US anymore, on a lot of levels.
