This document is too short: ehdfuedfhuvbdeufhdvhuycbb Yeah and Sure, agriculture did dramatically change the course of the human race. There are some things about agriculture that I hate. But to call it a mistake? I wouldn't go so far to say that. This article does a great job at touting the hunter-gatherer society glamorously, but fails to address the bottom line. Would our lives really be better? I've recently picked up hunting. In a hunter-gatherer society, who the hell would invent glasses if everyone's constantly worried about feeding themselves and moving all the time?
