Why so many western people find it hard to image 1st world country, in pre industrial revolution era


Despite not having modern technology, many ancient civilization enjoy 1st word status, eg China, Ottoman, India, Rome, Egypt and Native American's Empire. Europe was 3rd world during dark and middle ages, wasn't due to lack of technology, but due to church's great power and restriction and a corrupt feudal society set up by church, under the concept of "king is god's given right" industrial revolution is merely how Europe get out of poverty after overthrowing church and began age of enlightment, by increase manufacture and trade with the wealthier non west.
