    what a wonderful film, thank you for sharing

    I think if we had all lived through history we'd be more than glad to be where we are today despite all the bad bits.

    easier doesn’t mean healthier. Zoo animals have it easier but psychologically they’re better off in the wild

    To be honest, your statement may be true. Let's talk about people though. 100 years ago people didn't have as much safety nets provided by their governments. Everyday life sure is easier thanks to welfare, but psychologically it teaches people to take something in exchange for nothing. To not care about their future as much since all is safe and ensured.

    So what the solution for you ?

    Society is changing faster than we can physically adapt to it, obviously that will subconsciously (or less often consciously) cause a lot of people some mental distress.

    No, but then again, society has never been good for mental health. Life has always sucked, but it's gradually gotten better over time. I doubt it'll ever be near perfect though.

    Lazy or weak people before the development of modern day society probably wouldn't have lasted.. Theres so much we could talk about right now, I mean think about it- the world population in the just 1700s was 700 million, today world population is 7 BILLION. I mean it might not be obvious but even the folks in the welfare system/ living in poverty contribute indirectly.. Sorry to say this but "crime pays" in a sense- in the sense that it creates jobs, police, security officers, security system manufacturers, lawyers, judges, administrators just to name a few! My argument is just that the way society is set up these days is not healthy psychologically. Its making people live longer sure, but at what expense? Preservatives help food last longer too.

    I think there's a large cultural barrier - which has been in construction for very long - to pass. The first step would be to give people who don't want to be involved in Social Security the possibility to opt out. Then, sadly, uphold the system from taxes, and gradually abolish it. And I don't say private life insurance is the best, to be honest, it'd be nice if people just quit associating being elderly with being unable to work and deserving help from every member of the society. Families should voluntarily help their elderly and if they don't want to do so, then they should have raised their loved ones better. Sounds crazy but 100 years ago most of modern solutions seemed crazy to hear about.
