There is NO guarantee what kind of world you might find yourself in. (BTW:
NO guarantee that cryonics will even work--don't let anyone snowball you
about that..<no pun intended>).  I'm sure that there will be some here that
will answer this question 
with a "candy coated" answer of a perfect world with full-blown
nanotechnology that

will give everyone anything they ever need, and there just won't be a reason for
a war, etc.  They may even reason that if there was a war (world war?), or big
disaster (asteroid impact?, earthquake?, famine?) then resources wouldn't be
for the monumental effort of recovering a person in cryonic suspension.  
The point is:  *You DON'T know what kind of world you will find yourself in.*
No one does.  You may arrive to find yourself in a living hell.  Who knows??
It's just part of the gamble that you take if you choose cryonic suspension.
