I just thought I would point this out because our problems may be different then and now, but travel (time or otherwise) doesn't erase them, it just changes them. We all live better than kings did in the medieval era - the array of foods and goods and health and cleanliness we can afford is astounding. Thankfully, we also live in a world where you won't be burned at the stake for expressing your opinion. (Most of the time.) But there are still problems that demand our attention. Most of us in the world today don't have to worry about where our next meal is coming from, whether the lord of the manor is going to take all our crops, or whether two-thirds of our seventeen children will die before the age of 12. So where should we channel that energy instead? Making sure our eyebrows are perfectly plucked? Or seeing that people are fed and sheltered and heard and validated? I lean towards the latter. Of course we need to have our basic needs and desires met before we can tend to others, or study, create, invent, and so on. And necessities may look different for different people. As long as we're living, breathing, and being ourselves, we can't go too far wrong.
*Not an actual/stated reason for burning a woman at the stake, but you know, approximately.
