It annoys me when I see things like: "People are so evil nowadays." Or "things out there are getting so bad." Or "no one wants to work anymore." These types of generalizations, where you think people today are different than ever before, are often wrong.
Human nature is human nature. We haven't changed much since the beginning. Similar emotions, similar reactions. @RobertGreene tells a story in his book Human Nature about how some of the earliest written text discovered was complaints about how lazy the latest generation was.
