I'm starting to see why people get nostalgic; when the world just seems to go out of it's way to suck ass, you just want to go back in time to when things didn't burden your heart and mind as much.
The way I look at it, is that usually what we remember of the past is untrue. I'm kinda taking that perspective these days, because I'm starting to realize that as much as a lot of the stuff I like is from the 90's, that doesn't mean that the 90's was a particularly great time.
Similarly, there might be some great stuff going on right now, that we're just not aware of. Like, I point this out when people freak out over the most recent mass shooting, but violent crime is at an overall all time low.
Just you know... Always look at the world in terms of, that there might be something that you're missing that might be skewing your perspective of things. We're human after all.
The don't call it escapism for nothing. You can find things from your youngster years more plesant no matter how many wrongdoings they might've have. Cause at least you can say with full confidence that said wrongdoing not for real.
Now, the blur between fictional and real conflict has overlapped. You could still watch something today where good still triumphs over evil in the end. Yet everything else that surrounds, in-universe, out or both, could still be so cynical you feel like it's accomplised nothing.
People rant on why so many more bad stuff is being reported than back then. Little do they stop to realize back then, hundreds of people had their lives claimed, and no one would know about it.
