If everything is always so amazingly much better, why are we not all living like kings and queens?

If you're an american or from most european countries you do live like a king/queen from way back in the day. Actually, you live way better than most kings/queens used to.

It's a good thing we have history books to see these things, because for most people "history" starts the day they are born.
