  16. In spite of the 20th century modernists' attempt to re-write the history of the previous generations, making us believe that people were sick, poor, miserable and unhappy, there is still evidence left behind by the people of the past (for example, in the castle walls themselves) that shows us they weren't as primitive as we are taught to believeā€¦The idea of a woman being protected from hardship and keeping her feet warm, seems like a fairy tale today, but thanks to some of the stories, the truth is revealed

  20. I think that it is possible many women embrace revisionist history to feel better about our state in society now... They may not want to admit how bad they think it really is because that would be to admit they were wrong so instead they go with the theory that it's better now... It's a far more comfortable idea to hold for some, I think.
