The post was lost in the transition so I will restart the topic and re-upload the articles.

I wasL lstening to Toby Hemenway's lecture from YouTube "How Permaculture can save Humanity and Earht but not Civilization" and got interested in his recommendation about Marshall Sahlins's The Original Affluent Society and it made me think about the origins of permaculture.

The other thread of our shared origin referenced by Bill Mollison is the role of warfare in the Neolithic Transformation—the mode of subsistence shifting during the transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural society.
