Life today is easier Score: 4.5 September 21st, 2017 by anonymous

Some people say life today is more difficult than it was several decades ago. Because something that happened frequently in recent years such as economic crisis and pollution is influencing our daily life. However, I argue that life is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children.

First of all, there are many new inventions that make our life more convenient. For instance, with the rapidly development of online payment platform in China, people feel more comfortable when they go shopping. Because in the past, people must take cash even a lot of coins. It is really inconvenient to give change. Now, scanning a QR code by your smartphone, you can pay for everything at everywhere without cash. Obviously, technology make our life easier.

When it comes to the employment, people always complain that it is more difficult to find a job due to the economic crisis in recent years. However, the fact is that there are more position than before. With the appearing of the emerging industry such as the cars powered by renewable energy, they need lots of people to develop and maintain their markets. And people is well-educated than before. Therefore, it is not difficult to find a job today.

The last reason is that it is relatively peaceful today than it was when my grandparents were children. In the last century, there is a Cold War between the Soviet Union and the US. The price of life necessities was unstable because of the arms race. People lived in fear and felt uncomfortable. However, the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the developing of world market bring the relative peace. As a result, People can buy life necessities at a stable prize. They also do not worry about the nuclear war. Life become more comfortable.

With so many advantages, it is obvious that life is easier and more comfortable than before. If my grandparents are still alive, maybe they will also feel relaxing.
