For this module we are going to focus more on extensive reading so I am going to choose articles but also chapters and whole books.
First, I would like you to think about this question and answer it using your own life experience and thoughts:
In your opinion, what are the worst mistakes in the History of Human Race? Choose 3 and explain your choice.
After answering, I want you to take the time to read carefully this article by Jared Diamond.
(You can get to know this amazing author here for example).
After reading it: What are your thoughts? Are you surprised? What do you think about his arguments? Do you agree?
Challenge 3 coming soon... :)
I really enjoyed reading the article because I have never thought of that. Probably because I was already borned into a society that lives from agriculture, and the truth is that being a hunter-gathered is not a bad thing. The problem is that hunters-gatherers lifestyle could not fulfill the needs of all worlds' population. If we had to live from what earth gives us (without growing crops for example) eating only whatever appears in front of us, basically living by chance, there wouldn't be enough food for all of us. On the other hand, we are so use to have everything we want, so use to have plenty of food, food that we can storage, that when something goes wrong, for instance, because of floods or fires, we face starvation. To summarize, what I'm trying to say is that both lifestyles has its pros and cons.
