When and where was the best time to be alive?

No "le wrong generation" bullshit here please, state thoughtful reasons, not trivial stuff like music and fashion.

Just after the American industrial revolution -- life was comfortable but technology had not destroyed nature and society. Literally everyone I know now argued about the new iPhone not having a headphone jack like it's the highlight of the year. That caused me to dissociate from reality.

Today. This is the age of biopolitics. Life and reproduction are glorified like never before. Giving new meaning to what Aristotle once called the Bios Politikos. Modern man takes a morbid and demented pleasure in his "species-being", like the tame and domesticated animal he has turned out to be. No longer animal rationale, more like animal laborans and animal socialis.

Music is closer to literature than fashion. It's just that, unlike literature, the medium gets more recognition for the worst stuff to come out of it. At its best the two mediums are matched.

There's a couple different things you could argue.

Obviously a booming economy seems like a good quality. Then again booms in science and technology would attract some. But, and although you say it's trivial, culture is still somethign that is very important to many people.

Either 100 years from now or 200 years from now assuming we haven't gone extinct by then and there wasn't a nuclear war or anything.

Every answer other than now is wrong, imo

You have access to knowledge of all of history in music, literature, and every other artistic medium

Technology has made it extremely convenient to access and made things convenient

The trade-off: Dissociation from others who get distracted with useless things by consuming bullshit media instead of anything worth discussing over

Serious question: what are you doing on this board if you see art as trivial? Go back to /sci/

Those things are great but are mostly used as medicine for my chronic depression (and I wonder if I would have been so depressed in a different society).

I feel as if the period between 1848. and 1923., sans the Great War, was the best possible.
This is a completly subjective opinion, you may disagree.
The awakening of nations, the rise of new ideology, living the same century with people like 'spookster-guy', Marx, Kierkegaard, but also the development of photography.
Then, in my region, the annexation of Bosnia meant indrustalization, and a workplace, and in Serbia it meant modernazation. Beside this, it is also the time of insurgency of poetry, writing etc. in these regions. There still is the problem of war, but if I survive the Balkan wars, I'd probably not survive the Great War.

I feel as if, being a bohemian Serb poet in a comfy classically styled oriental town with western influence is the life one needs to aspire.
Until tubercolosis kills me, of course.

First day on the internet? I said that because I didn't want idiots spouting "I love the 80s, metal and hair wooo! xD". You have access to the same fucking music that was available in the past so it's not a valid reason.

Personally I prefer the short period after the Vienna Concert. It was comfy as fuck before the nationalists/liberal/socialist tensions rose up again.

After 1848 was probably way more interesting though.

Still, these are social things that have an impact on culture, so having access to 1700s clothes doesn't mean much when you can't reasonably wear it.

The job market was much better in the 1990's, which is the correct answer.

Post-WWII was great. Europe was too wrecked to compete, China, Brazil and India too primitive. It was never better to be an American, and probably won't be again in our lifetimes.

Anyway, polite sage. Thanks for not posting some mindless pol9k babble.

One of the most prominent falsehoods of modern times, the great lie. Big number signifying the growth of economy don't mean jack shit in terms of actual human happiness and life quality.
