    I'd rather be alive now but my political views remind me of the pre-WW1 Liberals before they lost their way. A belief in free trade, an acceptance of social change but also a belief in eugenics and empire. A time when Britain ruled the seas and our politicians had ambition.
    The most prominent free traders of the, pre-WW1, 19th century era, namely Richard Cobden and John Bright (and their followers), were anti-imperialist.

    Also, the Liberals became far more supportive of eugenics after they had "lost their way". Don't forget two of the most important new Liberals, Keynes and Beveridge,were enthusiastic supporters of eugenics (the former served as the director of the British Eugenics society for some time).

    Every time is my time to make use of.

    However, if I had to choose one, I would choose the time that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was alive so I could ask him a million questions.

    Totally agree. The 1920s and 30s were something else.

    Well, I don't drink, so that wouldn't have bothered me I do, however, believe that everyone should make their own choices and prohibition in the US was just ridiculous. Did more harm than good.
    Europe in that time is where I would have wanted to be, Paris or London, maybe Berlin.

    At first thought I'd say I'd like to have been born fifty years earlier. All my favourite music was starting to come out then, and technology was just starting to become a real thing, with computers and hi-fis and the like.

    But then I think, actually, I was born at the right time. I can get my favourite music cheaply, and enjoy it with people who are similar to me. There's a huge computer revolution brewing, and I'm one of the lucky people who, in another fifty years, is going to be able to say I remember it and what it meant. Not only that, but with my mental disabilities and autism, I wouldn't have had a chance fifty years ago.

    Moral of the story: be content with what you've got.

    If you ask anyone who lived through the Great Depression if they fancy revisiting it I don't think you'll get a positive response.

    I'd say 1950s but I'm not naïve enough to not realise that I'd practically have zero rights and opportunities if I were born with the same gender and ethnicity
