I've never heard of the 30's being considered a great time to live in. Most average people lost their jobs and homes at this time. You couldn't drink any Green Iguana's without having Eliot Ness on your ass. Not to mention the complacency brought on by isolationism which allowed the Nazi threat to spread thoughout Europe and leaving only the French (Bwahaha! THOSE guys? :P) and wimpy-ass Chamberlain to deal with them, and boy did THEY ever do a bang-up job. ;)
Thank God good ol' FDR saved America from all that! Though I'm sure it'd be great to kick some Nazi ass, though you'd have to wait until the 1940's if you're an American.
: It would be great to go back to the 30s. Never mind nuisances like the lack of deoderant, segregation, prohibition and the Great Depression. And WWII would be my kind of catalyst. All those hours at the shooting range and hunting ducks on all those wekends MUST pay off somehow! Kickin' Nazi butt would be great fun, fellas. Maybe we could even loot and plunder (rape?) and call it archaeology. WOO-HEE!
: I'm kidding fellas. I know you all like to sit in your lazyboys with the zapper in one hand and a beer in the other while planning the next trip to WallyWorld or Walmart.
