I like the olden times better

Many people look back and see only the good bits of the past. It doesn't matter what period there will always be a group of people who look back fondly.

There are those who look back to their childhood and remember good times in their own lives forgetting that back then there were older people looking back thirty years earlier.

There are many Americans from the southern US that look back to the "wild west" as the perfect period, longing to return to those days, they forget the harsh reality of life on the frontier [1]

There are still others who look back to their countries golden period, where I live that is the 14th century, they forget that people back they lived a harsh, short and brutal life [2]

To those who think the "old times" are "better" than today I would like to ask a question: Can you name a decade in the last three millenia where there was less poverty, violence, disease, war or terrorism that our current one?
