Too Easy

Compared to people who lived 300 years ago, The 1920s with electricity and indoor plumbing being close to commonplace, life would seem easy.  Today, life probably seems easy compared to the 1920s.  What will the future generations think about how we live today?  Will it be, “I can’t believe you used to have to drive yourself places”, “How did you live when you had to go to the store to get food”, or “I cannot believe people had to wipe their own asses”?  100+ years ago, if you wanted a steak, you had to go out in the field and kill the cow yourself.  Now, most people don’t even know where their food really comes from.  Will future generations be a slave to technology used for food by machines just like the Matrix or will technology pave the way for utopian societies like Elysium?
