Response to formercia (Original post)

4. Question

What era in human history bears the closest resemblance to our last thirty years?

These times remind me of the late 19th Century Gilded Age. But, life for the 99% seemed a hell of a lot more harsh than life in our times. Life was cheaper and death a lot more common.

The Gilded Age got fixed by Teddy Roosevelt in the early 20th Century. Is there perhaps another progressive leader in our future to make things quasi-fair again? And also a lot more for the common good to fix climate change and Fukashima type catastrophes?
