      What is terrifying is that in the medieval ages people had more fulfilling lives, not only that people had less hours worked than today, and more freedom to boot. Sure if you wanted to say play chess, or baord games you had to make them yourself, and yet, medieval people worked far more effectively and you could say experienced more of life, in their somewhat shorter life span.

      Don’t worry, after the big collapse coming at some point in the next decade or two things will be returning to their natural state.

      hahahahahahahahaha. Literally where in the Medieval world would somebody have more freedom than today? Serfdom is a form of slavery. Middle class city people if occupied with a trade were crushed by the guild system. Even free men in most places had a ridiculously high amount of obligations to state not to mention what can be arbitrary taxation.

          There was zero freedom in the medieval era scrotebrain. Working a blue collar job in modern times is an absolutely horrific experience and being a medieval peasant would have been significantly worse in pretty much every way.

            You’re dramatically overestimating the control a medieval monarch had over their territory. Firstly the overwhelming majority of it was under the control of the noblemen – and although they (mostly) obeyed the kings laws, paid their taxes, and swore loyalty to him he had very little actual control over them in terms of day to day life. For the commoners and other people living under a lord he really didn’t give much of a shit about what you did as long as you paid your rent/taxes on time and in full, and didn’t cause any trouble.

              There is no reason whatsoever to believe this is true when blue collar foremen and landlords in modern "enlightened" societies believe they should be allowed to do things like deliberately engineer scenarios that are intended to maim/mutilate people, starve people, force people to work overtime, force people into unwanted marriages, conspire with the government to use state surveillance apparatus to sabotage relationships and generally harass, threaten and demoralize people, use direct physical violence against people, etc all for the sake of "affirming dominance hierarchies". Modern blue collar foremen and landlords believe that "hierarchy affirming violence" is good, and that demoralizing, humiliating and threatening people into submission is an important part of their role in society.

              There is absolutely no reason to believe that people in the medieval era would have behaved better than modern people do. It’s almost a guarantee that they were worse. A person probably wouldn’t even be able to hold their gaze at the eye level of a reeve or look up from their work in general without being at risk of severe beating, mutilation, maiming, the same would likely happen if you even went for a stroll outside of your allotted plot of land. Life is completely hellish now and it was even worse before. Just read the american bill of rights if you want to know what sorts of things the average person wouldn’t have been allowed to do in the medieval era, that document wasn’t intended to create a solution to problems that didn’t already exist. Every amendment in the bill of rights would have been something that people back then would have experienced routinely, authorities coming into their house and just taking things, being punished for standing in too large of a group on the village green, 1/2

                They didn’t.

                Doesn’t matter, I’d work 120 days a year for a few hours a day if it meant I could live in a nice peasant’s house too and party all day.

                  Most of your time as a farmer is spent idle and watching the crops grow. They didn’t work because there was nothing else for them to do but sit there and be poor. If they were lucky they could seasonally migrate to the cities and find jobs as wagecucks

                  Also, the lack of privacy is widely attested too in pre-modern times. You’d be sharing a one room domicile with your entire extended family.

                The context that he is conveniently dropping about farm work is that there are crunch periods where you’re breaking your back from sun up to sun down, and long periods where all the crops are planted and now you just have to wait for them to finish growing in a few months for the harvest. It’s like trying to survive off of a part time job, which is why so many farmers seasonally migrate to the cities to find work

                  False. Even on their hardest work days, the peasants only ever had to work a few hours a day, and it was a very leisurely style of work. No peasant ever had to suffer like we do today.

          Serfs could be bought and sold, they were more or less property of a Lord. Since they were tied to the land when somebody sold that land they would go with it. By modern day standards the UN classifies serfdom as a form of slavery.

          It’s a lot easier to do that when you live in a world where you can take out a business loan and order material from a distributor and ship your product to retailers instead of whatever you can jerry rig out of chopped wood and try to sell to other broke peasants who are also jerry rigging shit out of chopped wood.

              Sure, I live on a small farm and it’s a great way to keep expenses down and save up for my kid’s college while my day job actually makes me money and keeps my bills paid. I couldn’t imagine trying to live off of it though, I’d be making significantly less money unless I went big and turned my farm into something more like a business, which in the modern day I can go down to the bank and get an agri loan if I felt like it to invest in the technology that would allow me to be competitive with the other large farms in the area. It would be a fuckload harder in the pre-modern period where there is no technology and going big means having access to lots of extremely cheap labor, which basically means I’d need to already be chummy with a noble who can secure funding for me, and be okay with another competitor edging in on his margins (in other words, it almost never happens)

      being asked pointed questions that they don’t know the answer to with the intention of establishing a justification to punish them, etc. The idea could people could just make things and sell them is such a joke, if someone made anything valuable their lord or reeve or the head of the parish watch or the parish priest or whoever had the slightest authority over them would just take it then have them fined for whatever materials they must have stolen to create it, probably beaten too for good measure. They’d have the "freedom" to walk back and forth between their cottage and the local church every sunday (chaperoned) to hear the priest tell them how worthless they are and that they deserve hell.

      I can’t imagine how sheltered of a life you would have had to have lived to not understand that humans are absolutely cruel and malicious.

        The lords were naturally incentivized to treat their peasants well and prioritize their long-term well-being since their great grandkids would inherit their property and punishments like that are bad for long-term prosperity.

        People in Tudor England were routinely executed for things like singing, playing instruments, dancing, juggling, fencing with wooden sticks, etc. No fun allowed basically. The idea that people were more free in the past is such a complete joke.

          Could be better, could be worse. Not as bad as /poo/tards might make it to be, our shitskins aren’t remotely as violent compared to the situation in American cities and you can mostly avoid the worst of them by staying out of the ‘ghettos’, but its not great.

      What? Efficiency is the entire reason the that life style fell apart. Feudal lords in the early modern period realized it was more cost efficient to use their land for cattle and sheep than for tenant farmers.
      > you could say experienced more of life
      Its kind of hard to experience more when you never go more than fifteen miles from the place you were born.

      The question is who are we producing for so many things…

      Why can’t we live in a freaking farm producing our own food and that’s all. Reduce population and it will be enough resources for everyone to live a self-sustaining life.

          Yeah because being a freaking modern slave all your life because you are not allowed to eat and have a life it’s such a great life.

          Fuck that, I don’t understand why do we need to be constantly producing more and more shit, population keeps growing, more resources needed, more competition for less jobs and resources, all your life worried that if you don’t have money you can’t buy food and pay rent and you will end up on the streets begging for money to be able to eat.

          Human life in this way of life is pure shit and it will be more and more pure shit. I don’t care if Elon Musk lunches another rocket or if we go to Mars or not, who the freaking cares?, to keep being freaking slaves to companies up there all your life worry because if not you are not allowed to eat? Fuck that.

                    Depends on what seeds are available at the time. In ancient times, peasants were given seeds and told how to plant them and how much to grow.

                        We are having a discussion about peasant life in the medieval times. I don’t give a shit about your personal farm. Your modern personal farm isn’t even comparable to a farm back then no matter how hard you pretend it is.

            What "sins" would your average peasant have committed? They lived in large families and lived simple, humble lives, they weren’t tempted by sin and degeneracy on every street corner like people today.

                What "crimes" would a peasant have possibly committed? They have no reason to do crime, they have all that they need in life, they have the fear of Hell to keep them from doing crime, and they respect the authorities as appointed by God.

                  So you deny the fact that highwaymen amd bandits existed. Interesting. What other delusions do you have about medieval life. Do you think they bathed regularly too? Another fun fact. When they did bathe they shared the same bathwater. So if you had a big family and were the last one to bathe. You bathed in your families filth.

                        5 or 6 highwaymen ambushing a knight could easily take them down, and most people on the road in medieval times were not knights, they were normies and traveling merchants who were utterly helpless.

                        The original "robber barons" literally refers to knights on the Rhine who were allowed to rape and pillage their countryside and the king refused to address the issue because he might need them in his next war

                      Occasional my ass. When you broke the law you either lost everything or you became a criminal. There was no hope of rehabilitation so just about everyone became a career criminal. It was such a problem even in the Roman Empire that being killed or robbed by bandits was treated like natural causes.

      Daily reminder to feudalscrotes that the only free parts of the Medieval World were Chartered Cities and Free City States, where burghers lived outside of the feudal system, were legally different people than serfs & peasants, and lived lives greatly resembling our own.

      And even then theirs is a hard world especially during wartime as- bereft of the protection of knights n shiet- citizens had to arm themselves as militia and went toe to toe vs knights/mercs
