Our Ancestors Had it Better?

Frank Lasee

Of course it wasn’t better for humans back then.

Finding food every day without being eaten by a predator was a challenge. And don’t slip and fall or get an infection. Being unable to move freely or dying of an infection were big problems.


Tim adds:

I don't see how anybody could believe we are worse off than our ancestors. They were hot in summer, cold in winter, dirty most of the time, lost their teeth while young, got sick and had to live with it, suffered when injured, at bad food, drank bad water, smelled, worked every waking hour, had no entertainment, made their own clothes, their own homes, their own food, and died young.

Other than that it was SOO much better!

1 BUT: the Democrat Party didn't exist then, so maybe there's some truth to this argument?

2 Well there is THAT Dana!

Actually it WAS better - at least in the last few centuries - insofar as the people held things in common, a common moral code, a common sense of charity, etc. that has been tossed away. People are in pain these days because of guilty consciences and a moral and spiritual vacuum.

3 In the 19th Century, at least in the more developed areas, it was expected that people followed the Christian faith and behaved as Christians ought to. All the Wild West movies we see are basically outliers.

4 Exactly right Dana. And while there were a lot of bad people in the Old West, there always were decent people fighting them - and that was in no small part because they were all Christians who went out there.

If we had a breakdown of law and order today we wouldn't have the kind of heroes we remember from the Old West. We'd just have anarchy.

5 Doesn't that basically describe "blue cities" today?

6 It sure does. And these cities will only get worse over time.

I really wish I lived in the country. But I can't afford to be that far from my doctors.
