Well if you would prefer what we have done for just Americans which is a rather shallow way to look at things. Women now have the right to vote. There is a grand interstate highway system providing more freedom to the citizens then has been available to any group in the past. We have a space program that has provided a better standard of living than has ever been possible due to the great scientific advancements. And lest we forget the computer and the www that allow us to share all this info.
