>Arguments that all humans before the industrial world saved us had
short, brutal, miserable lives filled with rot and disease and so on
seem just too convenient as excuses/propaganda for the status quo. 
They also have plenty of "scientific" counters.

Stone-Age Economics by Marshall Sahlins is a good read on this subject.
