Now is a much better time to have children than in ancient times. Imagine bringing a child into the world out in the cold with no shelter, very little
food, no hospital, very little medicine and much less knowledge of what actually works or doesn't for different ailments and sicknesses.
On a very basic level to survive and live man needs water food shelter fencing, black smithing, horses, wagons, pigs, cows, chickens and barns out
houses and beer almost forgot that one oh and mamma likes a little wine, just a little.
We have so much more than that today but we get it a different way which I'm not too fond of. Its called work!. Today someone else fences animals in
for food and we buy it from them. So now instead of butchering hogs soon as it turns good and cold every year so well have pork all year we go to the
grocery store and buy pig if we choose.
I want a farm right now today. Problem is in today's times it cost a lot more than just finding a piece of land and claiming it like folks have done
in the past. It cost more than I can even borrow money and pay back in 30 years. If I could get it, step out on a limb, take a chance, spend every
dime I ever hope to make to get it, then that G## ######d uncle sam is going to be knocking on the door wanting his due land tax.
Our grand fathers saw a time when they could get hundreds of acres for nearly nothing, you know providing they earned a decent living and worked hard,
they could get it. Now you can't even leave massive tracks of land to your children without them being capitol gained taxed on it to the point where
they'd have to sell the land to pay the taxes.
These are some of the things that irritate me today but life is still worth living and having children for the last 22 years have been like wood in a
fire place or fuel to propel me on man, I live for them.
We have it better today in so many ways but other ways we've seen it better in the past.
