Do We Deserve To Have An Option To Live As Hunter Gatherers?
Our society is constantly evolving. We changed from the monarchical times, to the communist uprisings, which were there erased by the boom of capitalism and free market.

We’re all aware of the rat race, and that money has put our actions into a thought prison. Quoting Orwell, the thought police in his acclaimed novel 1984 didn’t tolerate any thoughts against the welfare of the state, while the thought police of post globalization world is you. You are your thought police. You need…
