No. The Baron/Lord had forests. If you were caught in his forests you would get punished.

The nobles had their own forests, but there was more wildness in general. Lots of towns were surrounded by woods which you could explore without anyone bothering you, without having to pay or obey any rules. I know because it was still like this when my grandparents were children.

Progress is inevitable, but if progress is chaotic, bad things come of it as well as good things. See: the internet
>>
>>9177636
No, change is inevitable, but change is not the same as progress. In many ways the world we live in today is worse than it was a century ago.

So what's exactly the problem?
Is this another westcuck complaining?

Ah yes our single floor mudhut, and look at all the space around us!

>>9177645
Fair distinction.

>In many ways the world we live in today is worse than it was a century ago.
What ways in particular?
>>
>>9177684
In no particular order:

-smaller, dysfunctional families, weaker bonds, easier to end up completely alone
-lots of children growing up without a father, with disastrous consequences for their future (and ours)
-more material comfort, which translates to weak characters
-no sense of decency or shame, extreme individualistic morals
-harder to find a job that can support a whole family
-education system has lower standards than it used to, doesn't produce classically educated intellectuals any more
-more laws in general, less freedom, every aspect of life has become heavily regulated
-harder to find peace and silence because the population has exploded and there's noise everywhere
-mass surveillance, you're constantly being spied on by the government and corporations
-more pollution, literally impossible to escape now
-people rely on technology more for both physical and mental tasks, resulting in weaker bodies and minds
-political correctness is at all-time high, we're being forced to accept things that are contrary to science and common sense
-science is increasingly politicized, everything is political, there's propaganda everywhere

I could go on, but I think this should suffice.
