Yes, the Middle Ages are coming back. Back then, people lived and worked in the same place. The craftsman made the table, the shoes, the chair in the same place that he lived. In the modern age, children would see their dad going to the office without knowing what he was doing there. Now the place where we work, eat and where we love each other is becoming one again. Just as we need a world government for challenges like the climate catastrophe, the individual needs the family - and that is now becoming more important again, the nucleus is back.
