I believe greatness is an evolutionary process that changes and evolves era to era.
Previous generations understood about death, and undoubtedly would have seen a reasonable amount of death. Once you get into the Victorian era, you might well have seen the funerals of many of your siblings before you were very old.
It's a very confusing era that we're in.
Everyone is born into a certain era. I wouldn't want to see anyone faced with the circumstances that prevailed at the time, when there were few or no alternatives.

I am very conscious that you can't condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours.

Oscar de la Renta
Really, each era has its own false nostalgia. We all put a picket fence up around something. For my generation it was the '50s, and for other generations it will be something else. Change is scary for everyone, as is complexity, contradiction, and an uncertain future.
No matter what era we're in, we need hope.
The 21st Century has begun as an era of uncertainty, with a heightened focus on security and public safety.

Do not hide behind utopian logic which says that until we have the perfect security environment, nuclear disarmament cannot proceed. This is old-think. This is the mentality of the Cold War era.
