Not always: many pirates chose the life, and whenever a pirate stopped a merchant ship, it was not uncommon for a handful of merchant crewmen to join the pirates.
It is known as the 'Golden Age' because conditions were perfect for pirates to flourish, and many of the individuals we associate with piracy, such as Blackbeard, 'Calico Jack' Rackham, and 'Black Bart' Roberts, were active during this time.
