Our life nowadays is worse than that cavemen or apes. Cavemen needed to survive, it gave excitement and meaning to our primitive brains.
You don't get bored or depressed when survival and feeding your family is your top priority.
Their life was exciting. It was what our brains have evolved to do. The world was also new and mysterious to them, they didn't have a boring routine they must follow day in, day out.
Sure, they could die of many things. Many of them died prematurely. But for the short time they did live, every day was a new adventure.
What do we have now, however? We work many more hours per day than they did. There's nothing new or exciting in our lives, just a grind and a routine and drudgery. Life in these big societies is alienating, meaningless, full of many hostilities and traps, lies and deceit.
**This post does not apply to rich people. They have it better than ever before. I didn't even want to mention the words Chad and Stacy, but of course these shit for brains live better than any caveman could dream to.
