Wait, but isn't that the point? Seems to me the comparison to when we were kids is very apt. By every objective measure things were more dangerous in the 70s and 80s, and yet for some reason we've got kids on lock-down these days.

Yes, oboe, here is how my conversations about this almost always go.

Suburban me: You know, I do think it's sad that children these days don't get to be out on their own the way we used to.
Suburban parent: Oh, but it's so much more dangerous these days!
