Discovery News thinks it's the best time ever to be alive

It looks like it's time for a brief entry.  Fortunately, Discovery News has just the video in It's The Best Time In History To Be Alive and Here's Why.  Good news, everyone!

It's easy to watch the news and get down on our global state of affairs. But the world has made some great strides in improving life for everyone on this planet. Anthony, Laci, and Trace explain why right now is actually the best time in history to be alive.
I have a contrary view about techno-optimism on tap from TED, of all places.  In the meantime, here's to hoping that the DNews Crew is right and that things actually do get better, instead of this really being peak everything with the future getting worse.
