So if you could remake the world you would be a serf? Because under feudalism that's your only choice, and it doesn't matter how smart you are or how hard you work, your circumstance will NEVER improve.
If I were a serf, I'd be obliged to pay the landowner 1/3 of what I produced on his land. Given that I now pay considerably greater percentage than that in various taxes, serfdom doesn't look like that bad of a deal. My circumstances then, as now, would be determined by how well I made use of the resources at my disposal.
If you're under the delusion that YOU would fare differently because you're (ahem) *special*, realize that what enables that delusion is the democracy and equality GIVEN to you by previous generations of socially conscious activists.
The only thing your democracy and equality have produced is a society where the parasites to vote themselves a living out of the pockets of the productive. Repeat after me: All men are not created equal. Never have been, never will be.
There are only so many chairs at the top, and NONE of them have your name on it peasant.
Neither mine or yours, either then or now. What of it?
