This is an illusion. We live in better times than ever. Individuals are freer than ever. Live longer than ever. Nsa and such are the last struggle of the old world trying to maintain status quo.

The needs of the people are not being satisfied. Instead, business owners are using money for their own personal gains and give little of their own to the general populace.

Most political scientists and philosophers believe that we are in another Gilded Age
This may be so, but only to a point. Although things are better we should not let the label of "gilded age" let us become complacent in thinking that everything is as good as it's going to get - things can get better and demonstrably are getting better every day. We must keep working at it.
