    The way I see it there are many groups that went off on a tangent with flawed thinking that doesn't fit in with the human population as a whole.

    So I would like to see some forms of thought change a little.

    I Agree that you need to change your thoughts completely, cuz you'll be either too smart in the past or too stupid in the future and both are unlikely

    I would probably like to live during the Age of Exploration. I would definitely want to be a sailor.

    I fail to see how anyone could think that the overall quality of life - worldwide or in most individual countries - was better in the past (unless we're talking about the immediate past) than it is today.
    Depends, in a lot of periods there was more community, decentralism, less state power, less alineation and anomie(see Durkheim.) more contact with the land and such things.

    Throughout most of human history, most people had backbreaking work, short lifespans, a lack of communication with the outside world, more wars, and much less egalitarian societies than we have today. Even as recently as the 1990s, the overall quality of life was noticeably worse than it is today. And certainly if we're talking about the 1970s or even earlier.
    Wars within the last few centuries have been on a scale never seen before. Technology and some reforms have given us much but they've taken away much as well. Communications, technology, changes in work all have had their positives and negatives, sometimes the one outweighs the other and vice versa.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    My mindset is who I am. I'd prefer to keep it in either direction.

    Especially since in the past it would lead to power.

    The 1960s, as an Apollo astronaut.
    2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
    2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
    2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

    In the future, it would probably lead to a life that pretty much resembles the life I'm living now, unless the world goes to Hell in a handbasket.

    * Less crime
    * Better environment

    But there would be a trade off of less technology; we would have to give up all the gadgets that were made after the time you chose to live.

    So the question is: In what time period would you like to live?

    The poll is multiple choice; you can choose more than one time period.
    In a couple hundred years to see what has transpired with the world.

    Alternative: 1900-1960... when permits, enviro impact studies, enviroMarxists, and the like would have been seen as retarded at best.

    That said, the convoluted system of road blocks and bureaucracy in the Western World has eliminated a tremendous amount of competition, allowing punitive fees over long periods to be charged. When you have to deal with The Beast, actually slay it... and have a record of success, that is an additional, significant cost someone has to pay (end user) and is directly attributable to government busybodies making life tough for businesses.

    And to think, it'$ going to get wor$e before it get$ better.
