The big thing that is worse, I think, is economic inequality, and I do think that is something that needs to be worked on. However, the world has less racism, less homophobia, better medicine, cheap and fast global communications, inexpensive computing devices that can perform amazing computations, and put the shoe phone from "Get Smart" to shame,. Not to mention that violent crime and rape are at their lowest level since the 70's. The world is an awesome place now.

The boss was a controlling, emotionally abusive asshole who made the workplace a nepotism-filled hellhole and his children were sniveling prima donnas, I left less than a week notice and got a job that paid better and was less hostile. This was in white-collar land, and quitting abruptly will not affect my job prospects at all.
