John makes a really interesting point about how different our lives are today in the United States from people who lived a thousand years ago. Take a moment and think of some examples of things that you have or that you do on a regular basis that a thousand years ago would only be accessible to someone like a king, but that are accessible and available to you now due to modern technological advances. If you are finding this difficult, think about the things you do every day, especially those that rely on globalization and modern technology, and imagine what the equivalent would be a thousand years ago, and who that would be available to. *
