Why no modern nation's economy and welfare is as good as this 14th century nation?
Its a fair assume better technology today, can help enhance economy and social welfare, but many historical record show otherwise, according to record 14th!~17th century China, has senior allowance for all national elderly, free health care, public housing for all poor people so they won't live on the streets, free education pre jiran education for both men and wpomen (jiran=modern primary and secondary education) and free taishwa education (taishwa=modern university) for all men. No modern nations in the world, got that level of social benefit, US struggle even with national health care
Their child mortality rate was normal for the time - more than half of all children dying before adulthood. Life expectancy was good for that era but 20-30 years LESS than it is for everyone today.
Their quality of life was worse than poor people in the developed world; almost no one with clean running water, no one had electricity, women's rights were non-existent.
No, I choose any developed nation today over that historic era.
Actually life expectancy was 20~30 years was only Europe (because church think, education is a sin and disallow it and when facing problem all u can do is prey, doing otherwise is a sin, thus disallow it) rest of the world, people live well to 70s

Despite how unsustainable and morally hazardous the welfare state is, it does not begin to reach the moral bankruptcy of unwavering support of the state military. For conservatives, it is good and just to complain about every government program under the sun except the military. The military is the...
