Prior to coronavirus, mostly better. Politics has been getting worse for decades and, unfortunately, this dominates the news cycle. But in most walks of life things were getting better. Global poverty being the most obvious indicator.
After coronavirus, everything seems to be getting worse tho.
The attitudes of people in western countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, UK are getting worse, and so are many things related to it such as personal lives, family relationships, work relationships, personal habits (eg. making a home-cooked meal) are getting worse.
At the end of the day, the world comprises of people. If people's attitudes suck, there goes everything down the drain.
