Rare it is that I find myself almost 100% onboard for an article at Reason.com, even if it is one of the relatively few right-wing sites I think is worth my time. But Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Reason.com, 40 Ways Things Are Getting Better hits it out of the park, even if I have a few quibbles, notably…
1. Home entertainment. OK, I would sure have this on the list…but #1?
5. Information access I’d have been tempted to put the Internet #1. The quality of elite medical care [distributed on their #13 (AIDS care) #15 (mental health treatment), #23 (cancer care)] would be the other contender.
8. Attitudes toward LGBTQ people and their treatment under the law. Top five for me.
And I’d put a lot of tech–phones, computers, cameras. Machine Learning in my top ten too.
Musical accompaniment here is either Ian Dury or The Beatles depending on your proclivities,
