The renaissance times were a golden age of invention, art, and creativity.

Looking back throughout history you see times of hardship and then times of prosperity.

Right now America is slowly dying because we are arguing about stupid things like defund the police.

The reason why the renaissance times were great was because of strict rules and heavy police presences which made people feel.safe.

Feeling safe. People can start to imagine, think out side the box. Invent.

It was common sense procedures back then with tough consequences. Today the laws would be considered inhumane.

It's just sad to see such a rapidly evolving country be subject to this disease

A majority of the issues today are common sense safety issues that people are afraid to address out of racism.

And the country is arguing over such dumb ideas like defund the police, open borders.

It's a straight foward formula if you want to live in a prosperous environment .

Has everyone gone retarded?

From what I understood is the Renaissance happened because of lack of authority and the tightened grip by religious rule was loosened immensely...

Have any evidence for this over the top authority rule? The venetians were rather liberal when it came to the arts and believed heavily invested in early free market systems and Venice is arguably the birthplace of modern capitalism.

I'd argue it was lack of authority that made the rennaissance so successful. The church got the last laugh tho when they came back with a vengeance and crushed Europe back into a religious iron grip.

Simple people were pushed aside.
There was more of a thrive for greatness and cleanliness.

Mediocrity is celebrated today
Standards have been lowered
Cant even hold a student back
Everyone gets a trophy

Nothing like trying to compare contemporaneous times to those of 5-600 years ago. You get an 'A' for inventiveness, your knowledge of history, not as good.

50s, 60s, 60s. 80. 90s, there was a sharp increase in wealth, technology, medicine. And then the last 20 years it hit a road block.

Out of compassion we seem to be putting unintelligent and underprivileged people in jobs and positions of power.

Especially Democrats who believe their followers are like little pets they feed and teach how to act in society.
They take uncivilized people under their wing.

Such nonsense, such a non common sense stance, such a liberal stance would be never be even given the time to be contemplated.

So, police made the Renaissance Great?

All this time I thought it was information, knowledge, creatively, growth.

The opposite of state-sponsored oppression and tyrannical rule.

In a way yes. First you need a safe place and having a great military did that.
When a group of people dont have to worry about enemies or starving that's when they can switch their energy into invention and creativity.

You go from a survival mode to a stage of enlightenment.


Especially during those times when things were much more violent.

And it was much more common sense back then and more strict.
The dear Dumb and blind sadly were not catered to as much.
Society knew who the smarts ones were and used them.

Today its starts in the household. You will see a student who comes from a good family, never has to worry about money. never has to worry about food. Actually they have no worries.

And having no worries enables these students to take on an instrument, play a sport, learn another language, join a club, volunteer.

It's a concept way about your head.

There are reasons why there are increases in the advancement of technology and education.

And there are reasons why some countries look like they have not changed in a 1000 years.

And sometimes you need tough leaders to create this space so countires can evolve

I guess to sum it up, things were much more strict.
More was expected.
The pendulum swings.

Strictness didn't lead to the innovations of the Renaissance, questioning of the status quo did. The greatest tool was the printing press which helped break the authoritarian hold the Church and Monarchies had over the people.

You sound like a big government statist.

The renaissance was also the time of Macchiavelli and the Borgias. Not everybody felt safe around the Borgias. It's always dangerous to generalise about eras.

The education system was more strict, the police were more strict.

Lots more structure.

Much less compassion for the unfortunate.

Lol source? Want to fact check next. Should I create a bibliography and cite my sources?

Teachers were allowed to physically discipline students up until the 70s.

Cops walked around with billy clubs and used them.

It's way past your understanding of the world. Things were more simple and used more common sense.

And having less compassion produced greater results.
In produced better people.

Half the ideas people bring to the table today would not even be considered.

They would quicky be put in the dead. Dumb and blind category.

No time for losers, we are the champions of the world.

Dude, you're all over the place. First you talk about the Renaissance and now you're talking about how you liked to get hit by teachers in the 1970's.

Go find a government employee and let them smack you around, you sound like you miss it.
