There is a theory that hunter gatherer society offered several benefits over “civilized” society. There is a summary here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_affluent_society Other scholars also assert that hunter-gatherer societies were not “affluent” but suffered from extremely high infant mortality, frequent disease, and perennial warfare. It is also clear that hunter gatherers are not well placed to accumulate wealth, which seems to be a human need. Discuss this issue (pros and cons) using academic papers and books. Draw upon anthropology, and if needed history and psychology.
