1979 vs 2019 - a completely honest comparison of horror ..
40 years - how far have we come ??

no exaggerations, no lies , here you go

1) in 1979 , an earnest and timely debate was conducted on whether it was time to have a woman Supreme Court Justice, and whether any women were qualified

in 2019 , an earnest and timely debate was conducted on whether justice RBG was dead, replaced by a double, being cloned in a govt cloning facility, her worked being fraudulently done and covered up by staffers, other justices, the entire judicial branch , and hidden behind national security, NDAs, and (redacted)

2) in 1979 , a person could take his brand new Sony Walkman, a couple of spare maxell d90 cassette mix tapes, and listen ALL DAY to his favorite music

in 2019 , a person could listen to all the same music, skip ahead instead of rewind, but due to the LOUDNESS wars and digital remastering, listen to worse versions of the same songs

3) in 1979, the Alaskan Pipeline ,was on its way to pump BILLIONS of barrels, for dozens of years,
of oil to the USA , with almost ZERO accidents

in 2019, with the Keysone XL pipeline in lawsuit limbo, tanker car, yes tanker cars of oil had numberous accidents and spills, and were intentionally inefficient

4) in 1979 , movies with strong female leads like Alien, Norma Rae, and even Buck Rogers (Wilma) , could be looked up to by women young and old

in 2019 , movies with poorly written female leads were everywhere, and were complained about by women young and old , and men , and reviewers

5) in 1979 , life expectancy in the west was about 80

in 2019 , after decades of tech advances , life expectancy in the west was about 80

6) in 1979, most of your computer printing could be done by pushing the PRINT key , or Cntl P

in 2019 , most of your printing was unable to be done unless Timmy the Nerd from IT spent 2 hours loading new drivers, synching the computers , pinging this, cabling that , and taking 2 hours

7) in 1979 , the total US national debt was 1 trillion dollars (4.4t in current)

in 2019 , the total US national debt was 25 trillion dollars, with unfunded liabilities over 100 trillion

8) in 1979 , a large company , like SEARS with its catalog - could keep track of millions of customer accounts, numbers, subscriptions, orders, demographics, accounting , and a dozen other parameters

using 80 column paper punchcard machines with notepaper and pen backup

in 2019 - the largest tech company in the world can not keep track of video views, subscriptions, numbers, and the simplest of statistics, and a dozen other metrics, despite being a tech company

9) in 1979, an average salary in USA manufacturing was 20 dollars (sometimes inflation adj)

in 2019 , an average salary in USA manufacturing is 20 dollars

10) in 1979, the Lindbergh baby case was still unsolved

in 2019 , the Lindbergh baby case was already solved in 1930

11) in 1979 , Sweden had a population of exactly 8 million Scandinavians, with just over 500 rapes per year occurring

in 2018 , Sweden with a population of still exactly 8 million Scandinavians PLUS 2 million other (10m total) ,had over 8000 reported rapes, possibly 7000 more that the police would not write down, plus gang rapes and mayhem

12) in 1979, some people were replacing their rotary dial phone, which lasted 40 years without a problem, with a touch tone phone that would last 30 years without a problem

in 2019 , some people dropped their new 1000 dollar phone , and the screen cracked in the first week

13) in 1979 gridiron football, 2 feet , or one knee down, with control , was a catch

in 2019 , studio analysts in suits and ties debated the pages and pages of rules, and no one can figure out what is and what is not a catch , challenge flags , referee debates, commissioner statements, anger , endless replay, and idiocy rule

14) in 1979 - a 40 year old man visited his parents , at his childhood home,

and marvelled that the laminate kitchen counter top there lasted over 30 years with only a few chips and dings

in 2019 - a 40 year old man cringed that he just spent 80000 dollars so his wife could redo their kitchen , and make it all white, because her friend Becky has an all white kitchen which is 'in' , even thought the previous one was completely fine, and his wife does not even cook. oh yeah , the new marble counter tops chip easily , and have to be sealed EVERY YEAR

15) in 1979 - on a rainy day a mom could put her kids in the corner of the living room with the Atari 2600 , where they could be entertained for a few hours while she monitored them, until they went outside later

in 2019 - on a rainy day a mom could put her kids in the corner of the living room with a new gaming console, where they were half entertained while the tv , and the console, and Siri, and the security system, and the thermostat monitored them, and when the weather cleared they still stayed inside - bc no one plays outside anymore

In 1979 Smoking was everywhere, and had been for for over forty years, many people smoked and cancer caused 19.8% of all deaths.
In 2017 Smoking is not allowed in most public places, most people do not smoke, and cancer caused 21.7% of all deaths.

In 1979 you could buy a small pickup that got 27 mpg.
In 2019 you can buy a small pickup that gets 23 mpg.
Seriously, you can't make this shit up!
In 1979 the Ford courier and Mazda B2000 both were rated at 27 mpg.
The best available today are the Chevy and GMC diesels.
The best fuel injected gas 4 cylinder truck for mpg today is the GM/Chevy with the 2.5 that gets 22 mpg.
So a 1979 carbureted 4 cylinder truck with no computers gets better fuel economy than the equivilant modern fuel injected computer controlled engineering marvel.
1979 was not perfect though, as anything with a larger engine with California emission controls lost around 2 mpg, dropping typical dodges from 16 to 14 mpg.
This means 12+% increase in fuel consumed and carbon emitted for California style emission systems(3way catalyst).
This does not take into consideration the loss in mpg from having the smog pump, one way catalytic converter and standard smog tune.

sure 1979 had many problems, huge inflation, disco music, but overall it was pretty good

one last one

16) in 1979 , a blue collar guy in Palo Alto could buy a ranch 2br home, and make enough of a living at the local Apple 2 assembly place in Cupertino , possibly awaiting a better job as Jef Raskins new McIntosh project was underway

in 2019, a blue collar guy could afford to rent a tent in the yard of the 1979 home, with his manager affording the bunk beds inside,

except steve jobs took over the MacIntosh project and shipped all the manufacturing jobs overseas, so instead he does maintenance at the amazon shipping center,

chipped for location and productivity, and pissing his diaper because he is not allowed a bathroom break

In 1979, a family with one breadwinner earning an average salary could support the family buying an average house, an average car, average healthcare etc, and have a little left over for vacations and savings and college.


In 2019 there is no way a single wage earner can buy an average house average car and pay the average price for healthcare, without dipping into savings and going into debt. Most likely 2 out of 3 will be BELOW AVERAGE for the average wage earner.

Live here too of course I do:) You know it's presumptuous
to think I wouldn't care considering the subject matter of
video. Note how perfectly it compares the past to present
using real footage to express the individual freedom they lost.

Since you posted a comparison starting from 1979, naturally
I had to add to your thread one of the biggest cultural turning
points in the world that year... which in reality is a
cyclical phenomenon throughout human history. Cultural
degradation doesn't just apply to America.

Slavery vs freedom... the human condition that only Jesus
can ultimately save us from. In fact He already did, but it's
up to each of us to see it ... and believe it. John 8:32

In 1979 if you needed a job, you could just pick a place you wanted to work, walk in and get hired.

In 2019 you can only apply online, they do a full background check and psychological questionnaire with a third party consumer dossier agency before you even hit send on the application, and you can look for a job for six months before anyone will give you the time of day.

In 1979 I owned a shitty old VW van that I used for surfing, and it had a really crappy cassette player in it, which I could barely hear because of the tape noise, and the horrible noise of the VW, which didn't have a clean heater or air conditioning.

Today I have a Subaru Outback with a killer sound system, and crystal clear digital music, with all my favorite songs from 1960 on. I also really like my Toyota Tacoma, but the sound system isn't near as good as the Subaru. I love the wonderful air conditioning, and all the gadgets.

In 1979 I owned a video tape deck, which I recorded late night movies on, and watched later. Programming it was a fucking nightmare, and the video quality sucked. Also the movies in the 1970s really sucked. It was like the movie industry had died, and that's why I watched taped old movies.

Today I rip videos onto my computer, and watch movies and comedy TV shows on my laptop while reclining comfortably in my bed. Plus I have a 55 inch 4K TV that I watch all my entertainment on, and also play video games on. Entertainment is a thousand times better today.

In 1979 I had a record player, which really fucking sucked. I hated trying to clean records to get ride of the snaps and pops, which were distracting as hell. Records really ruined the listening experience, not to mention flipping records, etc.

Today digital music is like being in heaven, no distractions, just listening pleasure.

The number 5 line today is no longer accurate, life expectancy has went down not up or remained like it did back in the 70's or before the 70's.
Female life expectancy for the first time dropped where it once was longer than the males.

Even without wars killing our people for some Nation not ours far away from their homeland, our people were dying off at home.
From young men, to those not reached 65 years old, to babies and children.

I do not foresee us every going back to the better days, I see us all winding down on a trickle effect.
