    我们赞美的17个历史时代,尽管它们实际上很可怕

    很高兴成为21世纪的一员,wbu?

    Recently, Reddit useru/totally_not_a_pigeon要求人们分享历史上不同的时刻和时代常常被浪漫化,尽管它们实际上是多么可怕。他们要说的是:

    1."Victorian England. Goths love the aesthetic, but it was a disgusting place to live.疾病,腐败-简直糟透了。”

    2.“狂野的西部。据我所知,我们在西方看到的很多东西——简洁的陌生人、不法分子、强盗——都是好莱坞的发明。这个real westwas a hardscrabble existence that's nothing like the depiction in most westerns."

    @Grittv / Viagph.is

    3."Medieval history. 首先是瘟疫。实际上,农奴和任何妇女都没有自由。还有无休止的残酷战争。即使你是一个高贵的男性,这只意味着有人试图杀死你篡夺你的地位,他们可能是你的亲戚。几乎大多数人的教育也很少。”

    4."People tend to forget that the roaring '20s were roaring for rich Americans in particular. If you were living outside rich America, like in Oklahoma, the '20s不是在吼叫. If you were living outside America, like in Germany, the '20s weren't roaring."

    5."The1950s. Particularly in the US, it’s looked back on as a time of post-war prosperity and simple values, but sexism and racism were rampant, the red scare was widely used as a pretext for stripping away civil liberties, there was a constant fear of nuclear war, and there were zero environmental regulations paired with an industrial and chemical boom."

    6."The expansion into the American West, aka'Manifest Destiny.'Sure, John Wayne movies were fun, but what about: white people massacring Native people, stripping beautiful lands for mining, racism against Chinese immigrants, the near extinction of the bison and beaver, and rampant disease?"

    7."In the US, especially in the South, the战前时代. 它经常被描绘成这个颓废和繁荣的时代,但事实是,这是美国对被奴役的黑人施暴的高潮。”

    "It was not a time to be alive if you liked living past 50 and preferred not to suffer from diseases spreading. There was also the imbalance of going through the growing pains of industrialization without yet reaping any of the technical improvements that increased quality of life."

    8."Themodern era. If you live in a developed country, have at least a working class income, and a steady job, life is pretty close to what most people would consider utopia. But there are child slaves, active genocides, child soldiers, and people starving to death. I think most of the people who think this is the golden age need to look beyond the developed west."

    NBC / Viagph.is

    9."Greco-Roman hegemony. Everyone in the western world marvels at the innovations ofRomeGreece但这两个帝国都是这样一个例子:如果你把战争和扩张放在优先考虑的位置,而不是照顾你的人民,那么帝国就会腐朽和崩溃。”

    10“在英国,有些人还记得1940-41年‘blitz’在英国城市的空军喜爱。因此,人们将这一时期与乐观的斯多葛主义联系起来,而不是与大规模毁灭、大面积死亡和严重的精神疾病联系起来,这些疾病将在此后几十年里摧毁人们的生活。”

    11.“作为一个女人,现在之前的一切。”

    12.“70年代。到处都有危险。Serial killers和pedophiles started becoming more notorious and drugs like LSD were prevalent."

    福克斯广播公司/Viagph.is

    13."WWII andbombing Japan. It was not a just action against an evil empire, rather it was a horrific, indiscriminate, and now-illegal attack that should be looked upon with shame. Stop celebrating it, respect the victims, and learn from the past."

    14."The Renaissance. Sure, I love the aesthetic and that it was an Age of Enlightenment, but doctors sucked back then, and if you got theplague, you were screwed."

    艺术英国/Viagph.is

    15."I would definitely say the1800s. 是的,美国西部有发明和牛仔,但看看他们的药物和健康问题。他们用砷涂料和化妆品毒害自己,因为他们不知道它们有害。”

    纽约历史学会/Viagph.is

    16."For the life of me, I don't understand why so many people these days romanticize theViking Age. 谋杀?强奸?奴隶制?让我们把它刷在地毯下面,因为看,很酷的船!很酷的咬边!很酷的打斗场面!”

    大胡子打斗/Viagph.is

    17."People romanticize the'80s,但他们不应该。当时流行性感冒,禁毒战争军事化,艾滋病的兴起导致了极端的同性恋恐惧症。心理健康也没有受到重视。”
