Hunter Gatherers:. >Have to work the entire day to just get a little bit of food

Hunter Gatherers:
>Have to work the entire day to just get a little bit of food
>If you can't find anything, you starve.

Agriculturalists:
>All you have to do is plant crops, then you can just sit back while they grow, then harvest them and get tons of food

When did the meme start that life in the latter was some how better than the former? There's a reason why agricultural societies were doing science and shit while hunter gatherers were sitting around playing with rocks.

Is this some kind of wokethropology shit to make Africans in the Kalahari desert feel that they are on par or even superior to something like Sumeria or Egypt?

    Mutt subhumanity and manletism is far more common today. You would need $10m of land to live as a hunter gatherer.

        You would need 300k today to live as the average person in the Middle Ages as they ate a diet of organic meat. There were no cops, rent was free, the only expense was food and it was all the food today considered expensive.

    Eventually the family of the second grows so much it takes over another family and subjugates it, continuing this cycle until they become kings and then lords of an empire

    You do understand that hunter gatherer is the best life, it's been downhill since gay sapiens created agriculture, then judaism, then mercantilism

    This isn't true at all. Hunter-gatherers have more free time compared to people who live in Agricultural societies.

    Society is in rapid collapse due to peak oil, there will be nothing left by 2025. For the survivors there will be at least some solace that libs are annihilated.

    I don’t think it’s agriculture people take issue with as it is the civilization that was created by agriculture.

    Early Neolithic sounds kino as hell. Just grow your crops or tend your goats while you can just relax with your family and wait for free food. Later on one family became more powerful than the others and now you find yourself performing backbreaking labour for some kang. Then metallurgy is invented after the Neolithic and you have to work all day mining for a kang. That shit probably chipped off the lifespan of humans by at least 10-20 years.

    The former can't be subjugated into grain eating wage slaves.

    Anon this is not gardening. Those peoples spent their entire lifes working. They also had some cattle. I reccomend you to listen the nemets twitter spaces on youtube about the EEFs.

    When it wasn't the climate, it was your poor health, overpopulation, human sacrifice, having to build 5 meter width walls because you are scared of those 6'5 hunters that take your women.

    Plus, they guys that made science where not those same EEFs but their elites, wich unsurprisingly where always of HG or IE ancestry. Those ex-barbarians now had subjects, and could focus on higher tasks.

      The food they ate was a lot more nutritious than a entire field of wheat. They domesticated some animals and also practiced cannibalism.

      Yes, they spent their "entire day" in nature with their friends, eating meat, hunting, robbing and killing their enemies and having sex.

    also skeletons began to become fucked up from the work in the fields.

    Probably really old misconceptions. Believe there are some think tanks out there who use a farmer vs forager framework for behavior traits and the like, all sorts of wild generalizations that might be kind of useful in behavioral economics or applied history sorts of things in particular. The idea I've heard is that people in wealthy post-industrial countries have become more "forager" like, "forager" meaning ""forager"" (hippie, egalitarian, trusting, cooperative), vs "farmer" (which I think is used to mean animal husbandry farmer or modern kind of American dust bowl beat your kids farmer), farmers being on average more territorial and hostile to outsiders and pro-stratification/pro-civ tradition. All generalizations that probably don't apply to most actual prehistory/actual tribes/actual farmers like you're saying. Terms are stand in lables for real economic and cultural phenomena and so they're useful and so they're used.
