Feudalism ended the dark ages of European history by introducing order to the common person's life. it might not have been pretty,but feudalism helped restore order and a sense of community/lawfulness to the areas it was embraced by.

feudalism is a social system of rights and duties based on land tenure and personal relationships in which land is held in fief by vassals from lords to whom they owe specific services and with whom they are bound by personal loyalty.
In a border sense,the term denotes "feudal society",a form of civilization that flourishes especially in a closed agricultural economy and has certain general characteristics besides the mere presence of lords,vassals and fiefs
