London in the Golden Age of Freedom

More here.  Looks grim doesn’t it?  And if so, is that an argument against freedom?  I doubt it.  I think you could probably make an argument about how these people were not only the richest in the world but the richest there had ever been and that no matter how grim it might look to us it was a good deal less grim than had gone before.  Are there other ways of looking at it?
