When it comes to natural disasters like Katrina or events Like 9/11 and of course war in Iraq, would you say people pity and suffer more because they
have more to loose?
Example if a hurricane hit a populated area lets say 2000bc years ago, would the survivors suffer more emotionally then or now in 2005ad.
People then would find it easier to move place and start again without losing too much and land was more free lets say, no national insurance or IDs
to think about.
Today it seems harder for people to leave what they worked for or start again in some cases.
Are we suffering more today because mankind has reached a certain stage of comfortable form from open nature or is man today suffering more because of
the loss of material things and infrastructure as we have lost many survival skill even basic cooking for some and yet losing everything will seem a
lot more scarier? As 2000 years ago people knew how to survive.
Are we more sensitive by nature and emotionally weaker than before or were people 2000bc a lot tougher mentally.
Hope it makes sense and gives good discussion but forget the technicallity that taxes were around in Biblical times its about who are worse off from
two differnt time lines and how people would cope individaully and keep it as being exactly the same test in statistics and location.
There is a lot to balance out, where would you prefer to be?
