If you consume any type of centre-right content, you could be forgiven for thinking the world is falling apart.

There is problem-after-problem to fix. The Left is relentless in taking us in the wrong direction. The overall direction of society seems lost on both economic and social fronts.

The tone is dark, the mood gloomy.

And you certainly don’t feel good having consumed this material.

Let me give you some hope and encouragement that, despite the pessimism, things are improving:

  • In 1950, Australia’s life expectancy was 68 years. In 2022, it’s 84;
  • The last case of smallpox in Australia was in 1938;
  • In 1950, Australia’s deaths per thousand live births was 25. In 2022, less than 3;
  • In 1950, there were approximately 2,300 polio cases in Australia. There have been no polio cases in Australia since 2000;
  • In 1950, 1% of Australians had a university degree. In 2022, it’s 36%;
  • In 1960, Australia’s GDP was US$18.85 billion. In 2020, it was US$1.331 trillion;
  • In 1953, there were 750 million rabbits in Australia! For agricultural productivity purposes, by 2022, this thankfully reduced to 200 million;
  • In 1960, Australia produced 7.45 million tonnes of wheat. In 2021, it produced 36 million;
  • In 2017, 55.5 million physical books were sold in Australia. In 2021, that figure grew to 65.0 million;
  • In 1950, Australia did not have a space industry. In 2022, there are 388 Australian companies operating in Australia’s space industry.

So, cheer up.

Things aren’t as bad as they seem.
