No matter the time, there are always a ton of people thinking, 'We live in dark/bad times', and that the past was 'the golden age'. Obviously you can't always be living in bad times there have been plenty of worse times as well. And this is with anything, WoW, music, movies, etc.
The past is always better apparently, and they look back at it with rose-tinted glasses only seeing the good from the past and the bad from now, and then go to say 'the future will be much better than now' and then when the future comes curse the present (future from now) and praise the past (now).
What is your take on this, and why do people do it?
