It all would depend on your point of view & so many other things. If you're in a mud hut on the side of the road anything might look better. I think it is kind of scary now... because there seem to be a lot more weirdo freaks running loose. BUT, then we can now see them (we can all see them/those who will look) so that is progress.
You can pick what you want to be (there is that). You can run to the Amash farm or hideout in the hills, you can travel to wherever... you can get food easily.
Again it depends on where you are, what you're seeing & what you know. The unknowing makes this kind of weird. I was trying to prove a point to someone else (somewhere else) and I got this link (I'll put below). The film is a comparison of not that long ago, our grand or great-grandparents time... maybe some of your parents' time.
Just for info, the FBI used to make all new recruits visit the Holocaust museum. Pretty gruesome, but it will show you what man is capable of in our time. They will do it again (I fear that is the Covid thing/only this time worldwide by some real sicko people). We need to stop them before it comes to this.
Warning, this is really graphic, REAL so.. you know... don't show this to any kids: https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn1003832
