A Simple Question

"Why is it that with all the technological advances, free trade, democracy... that the average American today works longer hours for lower pay compared with 20 years ago?"

Paraphrased from the documentary, "Orwell Rolls In His Grave"

2 Reflections:

Better yet: why with all the technological and cultural advances we still have not created a paradise on Earth, but struggling with wars, borders, disasters etc.? =)

My guess for answer: planet resources are limited, number of people is growing, people tend think mostly about short term goals about things nearby.
