@Dayglochainsaw related 2 this, i saw a VERY cool take on tw*tter from Aya Charlatan that outlined what they termed "cortisolization" and "dopaminization".
they idea was basically that decisions people make to either avoid stress or attain a good feeling can be extrapolated into broad, macro-economic, civilization-scale trends. we learned how to do agriculture because it felt good not to stress about food. we are destroying the planet because it feels good to eat borger.
@johnrandom @Dayglochainsaw valid hell yeah. i wish i had more insight into neolithic societies and lifeways to continue this conversation but alas i do not. i do know that on even a barely pre-modern scale, primitive accumulation resulted in STAGGERING levels of hunger and poverty that folks just couldn't deal with because they were so used to being able to at least rely on subsistence farming.
