"Still, Megan's caveat can hardly be repeated too often. It's buzzkill for sure, but whenever we talk about whether we'd prefer the past to the present if we had lots more money to make up for the lack of flat screen TVs (or whatnot), it's worth remembering that it's not just technological differences that made the past the past. It was also social differences, and for an awful lot of people those social differences are far more important. If you're black or gay or Hispanic or female, all the money in the world wouldn't make the 50s a great place to live your life."
