The Story Of Bonnie And Clyde
Note: Please read the book - it’s much better then this outline. The Great Forgetting. Anywhere in the world, East or West, you can walk up to a stranger and say, “Let me show you how to be saved”, and you’ll be understood. The method of salvation being proposed is universal: It can be used by everyone and works for everyone. According to this world view, the human condition is such that everyone is born in an unsaved state and remains unsaved until the requisite ritual or inner action is performed, and all who die in this state either lose their chance for eternal happiness with God, or fail to escape the weary cycle of death and rebirth. But now try to imagine how these words would be received in a culture that had no notion that people were born in an unsaved state, that had no notion that people need to be saved. In the last 10,000 years of human history, Neolithic farming communes turned into villages, villages to towns, towns to kingdoms, etc.

What was being forgotten while all this was going on was the fact that there had been a time when none of it was going on - a time when human life was sustained by hunting and gathering rather than by animal husbandry and agriculture, a time when villages, towns, and kingdoms were undreamed of, a time when no one made a living as a potter or a basket maker, a time when commerce was unimaginable as a means of livelihood. It would have been necessary to hold on to the memory of our hunting/gathering past for five thousand years before humans began writing and anyone would have been capable of making a written record of it. By the time anyone was ready to write the human story (and writing had come about), the foundation events of our culture were ancient.
The Story Of Broke
But people still tried to imagine what human life was like “in the beginning”. The foundation events of our culture were quite easy to imagine, simply by extrapolation backward. Before kingdoms there were towns, before towns there were villages, etc. In fact, it was obvious that, if you went back far enough, you would come to a beginning in which there were no towns, no crafts, and no commerce. In the absence of any other theory, it seemed reasonable, even inescapable, to suppose that the human race must have begun with a single human couple, an original man and woman (guess who?).
And as far as they new, humans had come into existence as farmers. The Great Forgetting was woven into the fabric of our intellectual life from its very beginning. Why has not a single one of us ever heard a word about the Great Forgetting, by any name whatsoever? It’s a vital question, and our species’ future on this planet depends on it. What was forgotten was the fact that, before the advent of agriculture and village life, humans had lived in a profoundly different way. It was paleontology that exposed the Great Forgetting by making it unarguably clear that humans had been around long before any conceivable date for the planting of the first crop and the beginning of civilization. Man had been born something else entirely, a forager and a homeless nomad.
But here is one of the most amazing occurrences in all of human history. When the thinkers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries were finally compelled to admit that the entire structure of thought in our culture had been built on a profoundly important error, absolutely nothing happened. They just came up with a newfangled thing called pre history and pre historians. In this way, human history is reduced to the period exactly corresponding to the history of our culture. The myth of the Agricultural Revolution is that about 10,000 years ago, people began to abandon the foraging life in favor of agriculture.
The truth is that many different styles of agriculture were already in use all over the world 10,000 years ago, when our particular style of agriculture emerged in the Near East, in the Fertile Crescent (Iraq). Our culture’s type of agriculture is Totalitarian Agriculture. because it subordinates all life-forms to the relentless, single-minded production of human food. Fueled by the enormous food surpluses generated uniquely by this style of agriculture, a rapid population growth occurred among it practitioners, followed by an equally rapid geographical expansion that obliterated all other lifestyles in its path, including those based on other styles of agriculture. Totalitarian agriculture is more than a means of getting what you need to live, it’s the foundation for the most laborious lifestyle ever developed on this planet (thoroughly documented in the last 40 years).
What the founders of our culture fundamentally invented for us was the notion of work. They developed a hard way to live - the hardest way to live ever found on this planet. The labor intensiveness of this lifestyle gave rise to the obsession (both in the East and West) of the strange idea that people need to be saved. Also, famine became a by-product of totalitarian agriculture, and in fact is never found apart from it.
Agriculture doesn’t cure famine, it promotes famine - it creates the conditions in which famine occur. It makes it possible for more people to live in an area than that area can support - and that’s exactly where famines occur. Opposingly, even in the worst of Australian droughts, you’ll never find a single starving aborigine. Their culture, as with other tribal cultures, oppose famine. The Law of Limited Competition - during the Great Forgetting it came to be understood among the people of our culture, that life in “the wild” was governed by a single, cruel law known in English as “the Law of the Jungle”, or “kill or be killed”.
It’s fiction. Briefly, the law of limited competition is this: You may compete to the full extent of your capabilities, but you may not hunt down your competitors or destroy their food or deny them access to food. In other words, you may compete but you may not wage war on you competitors. People who follow this law are “Leavers”, people in our culture reject it and are “Takers”.
Three million years age, when humans evolved, Homo habilis was born a Leaver and a follower of the law. All the following humans followed the law up until our culture 10,000 years ago. Even tribal peoples today follow the law.
