Interesting read on humans settling down. The transition from hunting-gathering to settled agriculture moved East to West over thousands of years. It reached America and our West around the 18th century but was interrupted/halted by our westward expansion. Something important to understand regarding the history and cultures of the various American Indian tribes.

What was the beginning of where we went wrong? Industrialization? Excess agriculture? Opposable thumbs? Frontal cortex? Or just bad decisions? Should be doing better but as coke is more popular than ever, so is the toxic ego.

Forming groups, tribes, which allowed wives to socialize resulting in comparing possessions and husbands behavior.
More recently the 18th century American West mentioned above. They brought women out who demanded churches then schools. Things got worse, you weren't allowed to shoot people in the street anymore all the way up until Trump could. Carrie Nation put a big crimp on fun too. This awful history all stemmed from tribe forming.
