I'd have to say 50's america. Liberation. jobs and wealth for all. If I could live anywhere and anytime I think that's where I'd chose to live.
Really ? In the 50’s and especially in usa most people where stil narrowminded.
So iT depends who you are.
Black or gay then 50’s usa is not a good place.
Also if you have kinda liberal morals then such a conservative society would be not good.

Again it comes doen to who you are.
A slave in Rome is worthless but being a patrician or just rich then for example being a roman around 100 to 180 AD would be perfect.

Even if you were rich way back in the day though, it was no picnic. Roman aristocrats had a horrific burn rate. Sulla killed thousands of rich Romans for no other reason than they backed the wrong guy and after Sulla won everything, he wanted all their shit.

But yeah, being a rich Roman from an old family, you'd have access to some very entertaining stuff. Better than being a regular or slave Roman, anyway. :lol:

I wasn’t talking about sulla’s days but the time of the 5 great emperors. Acvording to gibbons (i think thats his name) the golden age of humanity ( i am not to sure about that either)

Born in 52 and I remember very well the Jim Crow Laws that were in place back then. Were they fair, hell no------certainly nowhere close by today's standards and far off base even back then. There's no doubt being an adult white male back in the 50's had its privileges and being black, Hispanic or Asian had its share of struggles.

I can vividly remember the segregation of races in just about all public places, especially in the south where I'm from. Black folk had their lunch counters in public places, water fountains, bathrooms, sections of theaters they were and were not allowed in, swimming pools, amusement parks, schools-----hell, even public transit where they were made to sit behind the side door exit near the back of the bus, and even then when the "White" section got filled, they were told to stand and give their seat to a white passenger, thus the crux of the Rosa Parks issue in Montgomery, Alabama.

One thing I miss is the fact almost all businesses would close on Sundays for people to be with family instead of working for the companies chasing the last almighty dollar like they do today.

Not only did we have the Jim Crow Laws, but we also had what were known as Blue Laws where on Sundays if a store was open, it could sell groceries, but not commodities like pens, notebooks, cookware, any type hardware, sporting goods, liquor, etc.--------at least not legally. If you could eat it or drink it as long as it had no alcohol, you could buy it. Other than that, you had to wait until Monday.
Become a Christian and keep the Sabbath. Problem solved.

That my friend is a direct contradiction.

Exodus 34:27 the law was written for Moses and the Israelites
The law was written for the Isrealites, so that they could purify themselves and serve as priests to the other nations.

It may no longer be practical to put aside the entire day, but being able to put aside time and reflect on what God has done, and also enjoying that time with your family, is important to any Christian.
