Question: Life now is better than it was 100 years ago.
Undergoing a span of a century the Earth witnessed both ameliorations and slight pitfalls. However, some people concede that life was superior in major avenues 100 years ago. According to my perspective, I stiffly concur with the statement provided and this essay would support this.
First and foremost, the way individuals live has sizeable privileges compared to it used to be a century ago. Of these privileges, the role captured by technological advancements is immense. Prevailingly, contemporary specimens of machinery have boosted our daily lives and triggered them to be prompt and efficient. People now communicate with their loved ones who are in faraway places at the push of a button or visit them in a fraction of a day. Further and even more significantly, due to an enormous medical mushroom, a great deal of fatal disorders have been being eliminated. As a result, many people's lives are saved. Looked from this perception, life is far better it was a century ago.
On the other hand, however, people now in a social breakdown. Whereas, they used to have a strong family bond and loyalty towards each other which is now gradually disappearing. The problem of the globe - increased divorce rate is wreaking havoc to young children (because of insufficient nurturing by a single parent). The abovementioned enhancement in technology, meanwhile, is also inflicting minor challenges. Since people are over relied on those gizmos, such as social networking, they tend to prefer "imaginary" relationship with others. As a ramification, the sense of face-to-face contact is now in depletion.
To take all mentioned into a nutshell I would like to once again reaffirm my position that in general, life is reasonably better than it was a century ago. Current pitfalls are imperceptible beyond tremendous scale of today's privileges.
Please, give approximate band scores for this.
