Once every week or so I get a forwarded note in WhatsApp or a write-up about the way things were in the good old days.

It goes like this... Women were beautiful and chaste, mothers always cooked delicious and healthy food, fathers worked hard, parents were lovably uncaring about their children's life choices, grandparents were wise, neighbors rallied,  teachers were scholarly, music was mellifluous, the mating games were innocent, rain was pure, god was in his heaven and all was well with the world.

It's always enjoyable to read fantasies.
