  1. There are no tricks here, and there is no meaningful exchange of information yet.

    “As experts say, the people began to live even better” usually means that experts collected huge statistics, and journalists took out 1-2 parameters from it in support of the thesis “the people began to live better”. They could also pick up parameters in support of some other thesis.

    “But I am from the people and I see that we have not become better off” is really just a subjective opinion. There are almost no average people, and their share in the population is extremely small. We differ from each other in a huge number of parameters, and for almost every person there is a parameter that makes a person unusual. So “I am from the people “does not mean”I am a typical representative of my people.” We're all atypical. The word ” we ” is usually understood as a narrow circle of our acquaintances, and it is even more so that it cannot be considered a cross-section of society.

    Example: you are quite a young man, you have small children, your wife sits with them and does not work, and you still have to pay the mortgage. Most of your friends are also the same age and in the same life situation. You have such a period in your life when you have to deny yourself a lot, although this does not mean that the people did not live better. (And this does not mean, by the way, that the people did not live worse.)

    “But you're not an expert” is probably true, not a trick. Otherwise, you wouldn't be asking this question.

    What is meant by “the people began to live better” – there is no consensus on this and can not be. 1. What is good for one, bad for the other. 2. We sometimes deliberately go to some hardships, hoping that it will benefit in the future. So do the nations. 3. Some of our wishlist items are not our desires, but values imposed by advertising and propaganda (in some languages they are the same thing). People often get upset because they don't have what they don't need and aren't happy about what they already have.

    To cope with such attacks, you need to find out what kind of specialists they are, what data they used, what conclusions and why you can really draw from this data. It should be understood that” simple”, one-sentence conclusions from the data are likely to be inaccurate and not completely correct. You should refer to the original sources, not to the interpreters.

  2. The average temperature in the hospital
    , including the crematorium and morgue
    , changes more strongly
    when the cremation ovens
    work more than in the wards…
    I think so…
    and you?

  3. Not only specialists see this,
    but the People do not notice it,
    as well as the beneficial influence
    of these specialists in their lives,
    although they probably began to live better
    considering themselves among the People.
