Are our politicians worse than their predecessors?

They are neither better nor worse.

What makes them look worse comes from three things:


We tend to embellish the past, therefore to represent the politicians of the past as more serious and virtuous than they were.


Today's problems are more complex, because of our greater technological know-how.


During the 19th century, technology transformed us into demi-gods.
