    Probably not. If you lived to adulthood and weren’t in an area ravaged by war, then it probably wasn’t that bad though

    Pure kino. Imagine only owing 30/45 days of work and taking off days from chores every feast day (secured by the local church).

        You're insane. That's the most relaxing and fulfilling work one could do, like construction.

        Maybe the physical labor is exhausting in a physical sense, but modern wagecucking as some customer service rep is literally soul sucking.

      government
      Medieval government was not libertarian in any sense. Kings and their lords desired strong power over people and they constantly reformed the state in order to achieve it. The majority of laws didn't even apply to men who were not free, which in 13th century England would have been well over 80% of people.

      People living in the 19th century were dozens of times wealthier in purchasing power than people in the Middle Ages. The modern world has made the lives of everyone objectively better

      Feudal Agrarian societies like these are are super susceptible to plagues and famines. If there are shortages in the modern day, the market adjusts and prices go up but almost nobody goes hungry. A bad harvest in medieval Europe was catastrophic and meant you were going hungry at best and starving to death at worst. You are working many, many unpaid hours just to survive the winter.

      Regular reminder that one article morons throw around claiming peasants only did one day of work a year, was written by an economist who had a brief look through some medieval records, saw peasants working for their lord and assumed that was their regular 9-5 Monday to Friday job and, being a moron economist with no knowledge of history, didn't factor in that was the time they were obliged to give up for their lord and then had to go and do the same again if not more, on their own land to avoid starving.

        IIRC your lord actually gave you one strip of land to tend to (and assigned every family another one as well within the same field), and then you had your own small fields close to your house to attend to as well. Outside of sowing and harvest, work was genuinely not bad and you had less work than now due to much of your work being chores that maybe needed to be done every week to every day or even every month, like chopping wood. Some things were done yearly, like making a wattle fence to patch up a hole so your sheep can't get out.
        Seriously, most of your day to day tasks would be comparable to taking out the trash or doing the dishes, with bigger projects like making reed mats being something you WANTED to do to make your house look nice.

      No. By any modern usage of the word and by the standards of modern lolbertarian parties, absolutely not.
      It’s true your Duke and King would have far less direct or regular involvement in your life than a modern government you still didn’t have a libertine society.
      1) child porn was banned, immediately proving they weren’t libertarians
      2) all porn was banned
      3) all kinds of things that didn’t violate the NAP were banned because they adhered to Christian values.
      4) very hierarchical social structure.
      You can have money but if you don’t have the blood then GTFO.

    No, far from it. The most "comfy" period of history, in terms of material standards, would be now. This is the age of spring mattresses, modern air conditioning, refrigeration, electricity, lightbulbs and an endless abundance of food brought to you by modern Industrial-scale farming practises.

    Instead they had something, that perhaps may be more important: a deeply held, quite frankly, feverish belief in a religion and faith that would've been deeply comforting to them throughout their entire life's journey to their deathbed. A very close and intimate relationship with their family and the members of their community. Overall a life of struggle, death and despair, but also of merry-making, feasting and deep spiritual satisfaction. They had a kind of fulfilment in their life, in their work and a connection to nature that is unknown to the modern person. That being said, there is probably very few people living nowadays who would survive, let alone thrive in what would be a very strange and foreign society to them.

    Give me some redpills on the medieval era. I dont know much about it but I do understand that it is generally misrepresented.

      It was a time of monumental change. Access to more engineering and technology than anyone before, mostly out of necessity. Waterwheels, windmills nature laboured for the Medieval man. Cathedrals stretched into the sky beyond the limits of imagining, their glittering stained glass casting a wide array of colour through their magnificent interior.

      "[This] was in many respects an age of fresh and vigorous life. The epoch of the Crusades, of the rise of towns, and of the earliest bureaucratic states of the West, saw the culmination of Romanesque art and the beginnings of Gothic art; the emergence of vernacular literatures; the revival of the Latin classics and of Latin poetry and Roman law; the recovery of Greek science, with its Arabic additions, and of much of Greek philosophy; and the origin of the first European universities. The twelfth century left its signature on higher education, on scholastic philosophy, on European systems of law, on architecture and sculpture, on the liturgical drama, on Latin and vernacular poetry. ... We shall confine ourselves to the Latin side of this renaissance, the revival of learning in the broadest sense—the Latin classics and their influence, the new jurisprudence and the more varied historiography, the new knowledge of the Greeks and Arabs and its effects upon western science and philosophy." Charles Haskins

        Knights and chivalry and stuff like that was real, yah?

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          Yes, but its a very complex topic and it's not really like depicted in popular culture usually. Knights were obviously real and dominated the battlefield during this period.
          By the time of Chrétien de Troyes (12th century) the classic virtues of chivalry were "established", these were for example: courage, loyalty, generosity, honesty and courtesy. Of course a lot of the times these were more ideals than anything, many knights strove towards the image of the "Ideal Christian knight".

    The Tudor period was probably the most comfortable. People had purchasing power and leverage against their lords so that they could afford wages and lifestyles that were basically on par with the 50's and had enough free time to literally build churches because they felt like it. OH and communal lands were a thing, so you always had the ability to graze livestock even if you didn't personally own enough land for them.

    Depends who you were and where you lived. Being a peasant, well anywhere, fricking sucked. In England, you were exempt from common law and couldn't petition the Royal courts which meant unless you could somehow find a way to convince a Jury you were not servile you couldn't actually take legal action against your Lord. You owed service to your Lord, rent and most servile people also owed 'presents' usually during Christmas to their Lord which could be commuted for cash effectively just being another tax. You could have your possessions seized without recourse if you failed a duty and you could be effectively sold to another man. If you're a free tenant, you basically avoid all these problems, other than having to pay rent. On top of that as a free man you can petition Royal courts and you weren't actually bound in service to the man you payed rent to. So even if it was impractical you could serve a Lord that you did not rent from despite where you lived. Knights did this far more often since they could actually afford to do it.

    Of course, unless you have a fair amount of income from land say above 5-6 pounds, you're going to have to supplement your income through wage work otherwise you're effectively out of a job for half the year and that just isn't sustainable unless your estates can fund that, which is not the case for the majority of people.
