Considering the awkward debt crisis, the depletion of resources, global tensions, global warming,...on the one hand and cultural, technological progress,... on the other hand. Better Quality of life in the future?

The term quality of life (QOL) is used to evaluate the
general well-being of individuals and societies. The term is used in a
wide range of contexts, including the fields of international development, healthcare, and politics. Quality of life should not be confused with the concept of standard of living,
which is based primarily on income. Instead, standard indicators of the
quality of life include not only wealth and employment, but also the
built environment, physical and mental health, education, recreation and
leisure time, and social belonging.

    unless someone does something to get us out of this recession, which we are in no matter what the government says, the quality of life can do nothing but decrease

    It will decrease as the problems of unemployment, price hikes and many political and social issues rise, the quality will decrease

    It means we have always had a low quality of life if we have never risen, and still are not rising, above these acts.

    Depending on all kinds of machines(sitting idly in front of a computer) in order to increase productivity but all the while wasting money in gyms to “stay healthy”; Yearly decrease in or extinction of different kinds of trees and animals all around the world; Air, soil, water and visual pollution sinking into our pores day by day;not to mention that crime rate(not that crime never happened before) has increased because of the social gap between poor and rich ppl, as well as because of lack of moral values, no time to reflect on our actions and their consequences; Social issues such as alcohol, drug, child, verbal or physical abuse; Areas in third world countries affected by racial fights and not remotely accessing the so-called luxuries of life the decades has brought to other luckier countries. Try reading the part about “…Quality of life should not be confused with the concept of standard of living, which is based primarily on income. Instead, standard indicators of the quality of life include not only wealth and employment, but also the
    built environment, physical and mental health, education, recreation and leisure time, and social belonging.” And next time, omit the term “overall” in your question.

    Did you know ppl are discriminated in India not because of their monetary status but because of their caste?Did you know nowadays even students have started making porn?Did you even hear about the mysterious death of Michaela Harte during her vacation with her husband?"Sustainable increase"?Lol..there shouldn't be even a slight increase in crime rate if we are to move towards a better society.

    "...now they have cameras. no reason to freak out." This is an indicator of how our society has allowed and will allow moral value to degrade.Apparently, you just speak to Indians but have never been there.Even they won't admit the truth.Ppl who live there know their misfortune of having been born in a low caste family.Education means nothing to them if it doesn't get them a decent place in society.Countries waging wars for the sake of oil,or power,or for years of enmity, ignoring the fact that all their resources are wasted on ammunition while civilians are living a poor lifestyle(referring to North Korea here).I'm sorry to say that for a few ppl in a few countries to have the privilege enjoy a jogging park or maybe a spa centre, it doesn't mean that the whole world is living a life of "good" quality.

    "suppressed sexuality" was once known as self-control.Being educated doesn't mean you have a status there.There's a series called: "Satyamev Jayate" on Youtube about India and the truth.I suggest you go by that.It's a national series, with all the "proof" you want.As for the "news", apparently it's only looking at all the modernity of the world(computers,landing on the moon,means of communication)and overlooking at what price those were achieved..but then again,it's not the "news" to report that..it's read between lines..

    I would rather call it "keeping one's horniness under control" but it's better that way..the growing hatred towards our own neighbours,hidden frustration,corruption and all that is as well not covered by media.Progress is happening,but taking into account moral standards,which is much more important than luxury and stretching from our home to the people in the opposite side of the world,we're far from the society that should have been formed.

    We've now reached a point where bringing back moral values into our lives to the same level as money or any other comfort is not likely.Should have changed way before you asked the question;my answer would have been different.

    Given the high probability of more wars, lower incomes for the masses, the super rich taking control of everything and manipulating the price of food, oil, housing, rents, wages, interest rates, taxes, precious metals, and commodities of all sorts, to their own gain at everyone else 's pain, quality of life for most people will be decreased. Drastically. That's not even taking into account the devastating effects climate change presents.
