    What is 'nonsensical' about it? There is no society where we can live as animals, and certain none that would be free. Animals only operate on instinct.

    We're not even remotely 'the same as we were back then'. That's ridiculous.

    Now humans are more civilized than ever, now humans have laws to entitle some to what is called criminal of others. Hehehe.

    I didn't quote you because it was a direct statement to the OP - not your statements. Didn't mean to be confusing.

    Yeah, the concept of money is a downer at times. We can go back to the barter system.

    Stalking down and then killing small animals with my teeth could be interesting.

    Despite their failures it can't be denied that the Soviets took a backwards country through an industrial revolution and turned it into a world superpower in a very short span of time.

    Who?...a superpower by what definition? Militarily? Economically? :)

    China's economy is 2nd only to ours. (1st by some accounts), yet their per capita income is less than Mexico's.
    Russia's per capita income is less than half of ours. You were saying?

    List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita - Wikipedia

    ps - Soviets, I see the edit. Russia is ranked 12th in size of economy, and 48th in per capita income.

    pss - and in the US only a little over 1/3 of the population is employed full time (full time re-defined recently to 35 hrs a week) with about 1/2 of 1% self employed.

    It's implied in the story of Adam and Eve.....

    Genesis 2:17
    But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die
