    Hah I noticed some interesting choices.

    As for me:

    1. Czechoslovakia 1918 - 1938/39 : Productive and creative society, and at the same time quite peaceful, yet determined to defend their land against any invaders, such as Germans.

    2. Argentina 1918 - 1938 and the same place in late 1940's and 1950's (when Juan Perón was the president).

    3. Italy, again the same period of 1918 - 1938. Futurism and fascism, do I need to say more?

    4. Etruscan civilization - Italian peninsula before the rise of Rome.

  • A lot of times I feel as if I'm still living in the Victorian era, in England, or New England... or Romanov Russia. Music plays a big role in my mental time travels; waking up from dreams to appreciate surreal art and music.

    For music, I would have to say Sopor Aeternus/Nenia C'alladhan and other Neo-Folk does it for me; and despite the fact that Pachelbel was long before, he was well ahead with Canon in D, and this epitomizes the Victorian spirit for me.

  • 1. Babylonian Empire
    2. Scandinavia around ~0
    3. South America before Hispanics arrived
    4. Pacific Islands before anyone else arrived.
    5. Africa during the time of colonialization (as an European of course)

    It is my homeland and would like to see the life of my forefathers.
    We were and we still are one of the greatest nations in Europe with deep history and a hard but gloriuos times of struggle with the Turkish invaders! (these bastards held us 500 years in slavery)
    So yeah this is my wish ;))

    Да живее Велика България и нека да преминем през вековете!!
    СЛАВА!!

    I would like to live during The Stone Age.Where people focused on surviving and not on which pair of jeans to wear.No despotism,no discrimination,total death to anyone who could not adjust.

  • I'd choose early middle-ages, let's say X century, when Holy Roman Empire started.

    50s - 70s

    germany before 1919.
    germany before the Christianization.

  • Scandinavia or Finland before christianity.

  • Medieval Times in Northern Europe...

    Does a firm persuasion that a thing is so, make it so?

    They didn't defend themselves against the Germans, they surrendered without a fight:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protectorate_of_Bohemia_and_Moravia

    ps. I'm suprised that so many people would want to live in the times of third reich (and world war 2) O_o

    I've been thinking a lot about living in the era of French Revolution. The Necklace Afffair, Marie Antoinette, and fighting to achieve freedom was a reasonable priority.
    Big dream of mine ;F.

    But right now I just want to be born a little bit earlier than I am so I could go to see my favourite bands at stage and their glory because now only their music remains and everything is coming to the end.

    Well, I always wanted to see my ancestors too, moreover I'm a native of Veliki Preslav. Pitty I don't live here anymore, still I manage to write this exactly from the most successful capital of Bulgaria.

    On the topic - I'd like to live in modern ages. I don't have the problem with the ages in which we leave, I have the problem with the people. The so-called moral laws existed before too, but now they mess with the multicultural problem, creating the biggest mess in human history. Most people are amoral but never realize it, and claiming that moral is a bad word in front of them will eventually end in confrontation.

    However, I do respect my ancients, just not enough to return to ages where the power of the arms rather than the intellect was more important.

    We're all talking about changes in our animal society, yet I still don't see them. Inventing the internet or going to the moon is not an escape from our primitive nature, it is more likely inventing yet another narcotic without which most of us are worthless.

    Still, I have the dream to see the worlds of the Foundation or Hyperion - dark ages of information and empires, of false idols and nostalgia.

  • choosing a different time to live..? I'd choose Scandinavia 2000-3000 years ago. a time when survival was something different than trying to make it to your bullshit job, dodging cars and trying not to choke on all the shit in the air.. survivalism, natural one. living by your primitive instincts.. but dunno, maybe I lived that allready..
