Might it not be true, that in the 1st world modern era the primary hazard is boredom?

Being that all previous generations before WWII, had faced actual physical hazards far more. yet even in this era and even in the first and second world, which accounts for roughly 1,000,000,000 people–boredom seems to be what I’m trying to avoid most…what causes any kind of drug addiction alcohol or chronic compensational mechanism. this is aside from the fact that at least socially this is the most boring and passive era for the middle class.
