Please, Sir, I Want Some More

I am always astounded that people can look at the same period of history and derive widely different "lessons" about that period, and therefore, what people should do differently now as a result.

I don't know about you, but the fact that I am alive at my advanced age, am leisurely writing this in my comparatively large home, instead of working in a factory for 12 hours/6 days a week, and using a communications network that would likely be considered magic by humans of the 18th century, are some pretty powerful Lessons. Also, world population 1750 = 750,000,000; 2012 = 7,000,000,000+

Not to say that everything was rainbows. Neither was the Middle Ages. So why are some so intent on re-writing history?
