    The Origins of the Patriarchy

    2018 - New Scientist

    With the advent of agriculture and homesteading, people began settling down. They acquired resources to defend, and power shifted to the physically stronger males. Fathers, sons, uncles and grandfathers began living near each other, property was passed down the male line, and female autonomy was eroded. As a result, the argument goes, patriarchy emerged.

    The Seeds of Civilization

    2005

    Not all archaeologists agree with Hodder’s conclusions. But there’s no doubt the Neolithic Revolution changed humanity forever. The roots of civilization were planted along with the first crops of wheat and barley, and it’s not a stretch to say that the mightiest of today’s skyscrapers can trace their heritage to the Neolithic architects who built the first stone dwellings. Nearly everything that came afterward, including organized religion, writing, cities, social inequality, population explosions, traffic jams, mobile phones and the Internet, has roots in the moment people decided to live together in communities. And once they did so, the Catalhoyuk work shows, there was no turning back.

    social change | Definition, Theory, & Examples

    2019

    Several theories of social evolution identify technological innovations as the most important determinants of societal change. Such technological breakthroughs as the smelting of iron, the introduction of the plow in agriculture, the invention of the steam engine, and the development of the computer have had lasting social consequences.

    Yuval Noah Harari and Jared Diamond in conversation

    2019

    But in the long run, the huge advantage of the democracy is flexibility that sometimes authoritarian regimes they can make quicker decisions because you need to compromise less, you need to consult less with different groups and different people. So it seems that they can make things work faster. But the big problem of authoritarian regimes is that when they make mistakes, and everybody makes mistakes: all regimes, all people, all parties make mistakes. In a democracy, when you make a mistake, it is easier to acknowledge it even if the ruling party doesn't acknowledge it, their citizenry can replace them. So you can change course. In authoritarian regimes, usually, when the regime makes a mistake, it never acknowledges it. It blames it either on enemies outside or traitors within and the conclusion the regime reaches is it meets even more power because yes, things are, we promised wonderful things, we didn't accomplish them, not because we made a mistake, but because there was traitors and enemies. So the solution is to give us even more power. And if again that things still don't improve, again they will say it's because the traitors are really really powerful. So we need even more power. And we know from history where this is leading. So no matter what the difficulties are, it is very important to remember this crucial advantage of democracy that it is better in acknowledging its mistakes and trying something else. And that usually is worth all the downsides of the democratic regimes. (Harari)

    Yuval Noah Harari and Jared Diamond in conversation

    2019

    Human power does not really depend on the noise of the truth. In many many cases, the real human power depends on co-operation, on large-scale cooperation. And, unfortunately or not, it is often easier to make people cooperate based on a fictional story than based on the truth. Because the truth, and this goes back to the issue of crisis, the truth is more often complicated, unflattering, difficult deal with; wheter were a fictional story tend to be easier to grasp and tend also often to flatter us like blaming somebody else for our problems. And... Take example say of atom bomb. What do you need in order to build an atom bomb? On the one hand, you need truth, scientific truth. If you are working on the basis of a wrong theory of physics, you think E equals M C to the third, you won't be able to build an atom bomb. So on the one hand you need the truth, and even the most dictotarial and lunatic regimes in the world, but it comes to build nuclear wepons they suddenly want the scientific truth. But, it is not enough to have a tru physical theory to build an atom bomb. You also need millions of people cooperating. You need notice the physicists, you need the miners and the engineers and the peasants and farmers who grow the food that the workers are in millions of people. Now how do you get millions of people to cooperate? Not by explaining to them the theory of relativity. It is a very bad, not bad but it is not going to work, you won't millions of people cooperating by trying to explain to them the theory of relativity. Here, ficitonal strories tend to be far far more offective. And we have seen it throught history and it's also true today. In many cases, when it comes to uniting people and cooperating, fictional stories easily trump the truth. (Harari)
