    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath

    How great for sasguru to gloat at the suffering.
    Actually the Victorian period was a time of income distribution, rising prosperity and medical advances that lifted the standard of living for all but because it was starting from a low point modern people of low education can't comprehend that it gave birth to the modern era.

    Not sure you have quite understood.

    If the decade of the 20's is about income distribution, rising prosperity and medical advances it will be a good thing.

    You see back in the victorian era lots of people lived in squaller, there was a larger wealth division and very few people had access to medical care - at the end of the era all these things had changed for the better - it is just that at that point we were starting from a very poor level.

    Now we are at this level and so if all these things happen it will be a good thing - no one is saying society will go back to where it was and so at the end of the 20's we will be back to how things were in the post victorian era - but you do understand that right?

    So lets see if I can give you an analogy - lets say you had to climb a 200 foot slope - you start at zero and if you say climb a 100 feet you are then 100 feet higher than when you started - if you then take a rest for a while and then decide to start again - you are not starting from 0 feet but 100 feet - does that clarify things?

    Just asking like.
