Which three?

The Elizabethan Age was ferocious, cruel, superstitious, greedy and courageous.

Hugh Walpole writing about the reign of Elizabeth I.

To my mind our Elizabethan age seems to have dispensed with three of those characteristics.

I'd drop only one - courageous.

Ferocious and cruel - BLM,Extinction Rebellion, Facebook...

Superstitious - Climate agitators

Greedy - spoiled for choice

decnine - I won't disagree, although I had in mind Elizabethan levels of ferocious and cruel. In the pipeline perhaps.
