Yesterday’s Luxuries Are Today’s Necessities

From Homo Deus.   We get used to luxuries incredibly quickly and take them for granted.  Even things like 3 meals daily, air conditioning, vaccines and a car are luxuries that people 200 years ago could never have dreamed of, yet they are today’s necessities.

It is difficult to take a step back and to admire our blessed circumstances, but it’s important to understand how much progress we’ve made as a human race.
