In what world are we living?

We are in the Iron Age. We think, we are evolving, but I believe we are regressing. Actually, we have a tendency to confuse technological evolution with human evolution. We can see how great our technology is, but what about us? We pretend to be civilized, but are we really? And what is to be civilized? I believe that to be civilized is to have a sens of responsibilities and respect to others of course, but also to ourself. It's also to be aware of our actions and to understand who we are. To be aware of what we're doing, the best way is to think of the consequences of our acts, whether they end up with a good or bad outcome. 
We are not civilized, we just pretend to be. The laws and the police force us to be civilized. Do you think, we would still be civilized if law and order were to disappear? 
We are living in the dictatorship of a mercantile society where a man has to pay to pretend to be free. We are living in the tyranny of moderation, politically correctness and softness generated by our surrounding paranoia and exacerbated by the susceptibilities of every body.
Mother nature is dying, eaten by our cupidity for always more wealth. Finally our masters are just a bunch of merchants and usurers who believe they are princes. They want to rule nations as they  rule a company.
Four million years of evolution to become like that ? I feel way more comfortable to believe that we have degenerated into that sorry state.
