The nostalgia for the hunter gatherer...

This article linked at left is suffused with a longing to return to the garden of Eden, despite the fact that any humans offered a taste of civilization abandon their hunter-gatherer life in an instant.

Such freedoms result in unpredictable change - good and bad.

Those with power (whether sanctioned by ballot or not) are always drawn to the simplest explanation:

"Your freedoms are leading us all to disaster. We am taking away your freedom for all our benefit."

Where have I heard that before..... "accept these commandments now .... in the interests of a promised land...."
