First of all, I'm not nostalgic for any time period before, as there is no time period before us that was any better than today, but the problem is, is that change for the better is now seriously threatened by change that is in fact backwards... to a time before regulation and modern laws.
Second of all, I'm certainly not nostalgic for a time period before anything that I take for granted even first existed, back when the earth's landmass would have been a recipe for conflict by being just 1 piece, and dominated by infertile desert land, and there the biggest food supply that humans could have gotten our hands on was insects.
Justice is not served for many victims of violence.
The stuff that I have been the victim of is tremendous, beyond your wildest imagination... verbal and emotional abuse by local thugs...
And constantly in fights, for years, never got beat in a fight, the closest match was a stalemate.
So I've also been the victim of assaults constantly... a few times they tried to stab me.
I lost a friend that owned a pizza place, to somebody with a 9mm Beretta.... and twice my house was stormed by gangs that we had to blockade and shoot.
And two attempted robberies.
The cops would never do anything about any of it.
I'm also self employed, because the hurdles have been way too high in my life.
