Sounds like a lot like doing without doing Andrew. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really allowed. Let me check the rule book.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard it said that some aboriginal peoples did a whole lot of sitting around because you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t use up as much calories, causing a need, in just hanging out.
Scout Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Yeah, I get it and my people skills generally result in Ã¢â‚¬Å“I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stand him.Ã¢â‚¬Â To Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s amazing.Ã¢â‚¬Â With the later having the fewer adherents.
My limited time in the bush did show me that being a good provider works fairly well in mate selection among neo-primitives who are cold and hungry enough. In my experience talk gets cheap way fast.

Take that one person out and what do you have?
Social structure is needed, in fact necessary for individual survival. We as modern Americans donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do it well because we want it all and we want it now at whatever costs; our children, our time on this earth, our lovers, our egos all up for sale for what we want and think is best. Tribal people worked because they were related. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t fuck your cousinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wifeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦unless he wants you to. As has been seen by the many attempts with communes the real story boils down to who sleeps with whom?
So, while I admittedly need to work on my social skills, people who are in need are going to be very easy to work with, and what I have stored in my head should be its own currency in such an environment of need and knowledge. So I grow food, tan hides, work on an ambulance occasionally, study, practice, and waitÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦…
