The Dark Ages Weren't Actually Dark Parallel Society

    • Philosophy

Most people still have the idea… the image… that the “Dark Ages” were filthy and grotesque, like a Monty Python film.
Not only is that false, but the people of the Dark Ages should be held in high regard. They’re the people who, for the first time in human history, killed slavery on a civilizational scale. They also created free market capitalism. And so, the prosperity that we enjoy to this day exists thanks to the people and ideas of the Dark Ages.
If that sounds crazy to you, you should probably listen.
