I would have liked to have lived in a time when my beliefs were similar to those of my community.
However, those were 'simpler' days, and that means they were not easy. The life our ancestors lived in that time was hard and sometimes brutal. Many struggled just to get the basics to survive. Few were blessed with enough income to live comfortably. Even those that did live better than the peasants didn't have it as easy as many of us do today.
So, though I look back at that time with wistful thoughts, I would not have wanted to live through it.
