Medieval in More Ways than One

We have seen that the demographics of the wizarding world resembles pre-industrial Britain between the late middle ages and the early modern period. I have discussed the burden of infectious diseases on wizarding society but traditionally disease is not the only problem facing pre-industrial societies.

Where death stalks the land, it does so in the twin forms of war and plague.

  • Why we cannot assume that the Ministry is similar to a Muggle Government

  • Why wizarding society is inherently unstable

  • Why injustice is so widespread in wizarding society
