Notes

The list above is non-exhaustive.
Technically speaking, the modern-era begins around 1500 and might be over now. However, when people speak of modern problems they are usually referring to problems of the past 50 years or so.
Commoditization of the human experience is the tendency for products and services to be designed to meet every human need such that the human experience becomes completely commercialized. For example, social status is traditionally about behavior and your relationships with other people in your community and society. This can be commoditized with the idea that products and service can represent social status such as an individual who signals that they are a good person with their choice of vehicle or signals that they are wealthy with a handbag.
Although the modern-era has many problems, quality of life has certainly improved on a global basis. For example, life expectancy has massively increased on a global basis over the past 100 years. It is historically common for each age to view itself as the worst period in history or the end of history.
