DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

The Black Plague

The Black Plague was a very devastating event in European history for many reasons. It was filled with political, economic, social, and religious issues that changed western culture for the worse. Millions of people died and anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of the population was wiped out in certain countries. The Black Plague was a turning point in European history because of its high intensity and urgency in a short timeframe.

Economic Issues

There were many economic issues during the Black Plague outbreak. Many doctors died because of the plague, so the only remaining doctors raised their prices through the roof, creating a mini-monopoly on medical help. This circulated the economy, but also risked the lives of many poor citizens who could have been saved if the prices were lower. Also, Jewish wealth was confiscated and targets were made out of wealthier jews because they were blamed for the plague. Jewish communities were accused of conspiracy and because of their wealth being taken away, they weren’t able to afford medical attention. Even if they wouldn’t have been executed, jews would probably have died of the plague shortly after.

Religious Issues

Many religions issues were also brought to attention during the Black Plague, for the plague seemed supernatural to the point of being out of control. Medical and religion efforts failed, but people were still turning to God and asking for help in time of need. This showed religion as a significant “theme” during the plague because people relied on their god to bring them safety in a time of death and despair. However, some religious parties weren’t as lucky. Jewish families were executed just because of their religious beliefs. No religion nor political group was safe from the plague.

Social Classes

All social classes were affected, which was a big problem. Rich aristocrats and poor beggars were all killed because of the Black Plague, which was a huge issue since no one was safe. The only hope that richer citizens had was getting medical help, and the doctors offering this help were inexperienced because the plague was such a new problem. Families abandoned each other and mortality rates were through the roof, with almost 40% of the population of France being killed by the Black Plague. Social issues played a large part in the devastation known as the Black Plague.

Conclusion

The Black Plague was devastating because of many reasons, but mainly because so many lives were taken. People of all social classes, all religions, all political groups, and all ages were killed by this problematic outbreak. It created problems in the future for Europe because of the decreased population and many innocent children were killed before they could start developing the next generation. The Black Plague wasn’t just another sickness that was carried around, it was a devastating illness that hurt European culture for the long-run.
