While the circumstances are as depressingly true today as they were in 2009, the sentiment is as well.

Here is the original text from the Dec. 16, 2009 Reason TV video:

We're going through some tough economic times right now, but this holiday season, take a moment to appreciate how good we really have it.
 
Need proof? Just think about how much Christmas presents sucked in the 1970s compared to today.
 
Thanks to our market-based system, we're wealthier, we have more choices, and we enjoy more leisure time than ever before. 
 
From all of us at Reason.tv, happy holidays! 
 
Produced by Paul Feine and Hawk Jensen. Hosted by Nick Gillespie.
Approximately 1.45 minutes.
