reminds me, somehow, of the joke about who loves you most, your wife or your dog. Lock 'em both in the boot of the car. which one is nicest to you when you let 'em out a couple of hours later.
If you are unhappy with how things are today, compared to how they were a few hundred years back, it is easy to go back to how you think things were back then, then. turn off your computer, grow your own vegetables, etc. Or go to central Africa and live their life for the short time they that they can. There is a widespread sense of gulit being spread through the western world, for a specific reason, and after years of propaganda, swathes of folk believe it is all their fault. However, if we actually had to do work for our survival, we would not have time to dwell on this nonsense, so in that respect, it could be thought that folk were happier years ago. 
As humans, we all have choices. More so today for most folk compared to 'back then' . The happiness, if you think that is the priority, comes from how you exercise those choices. There were not so many choices back then, but ignorance was bliss.

Fermi and friends tried to see FDR after Werner Heisenberg split atoms and the Nazis started their heavy water program to work towards a super-bomb. Only after they recruited Albert Einstein was an interview granted.

Those young men in Chicago were working towards making a bomb first, before Hitler had one.
