If you could be born in any time period into any tribe/culture, which would it be?
Would you be born into the paleolithic as a lone caveman? Or a modern hunter gatherer tribe like an aborigine? What would you choose?
I would like to choose Mbuti people because:
They are peaceful.
They are egalitarian.
They have a way to prevent violence, including domestic violence.
They have a great sense of humor and laugh a lot.
They solve their problems by talking and playing games.
They are people of the forest and they respect their environment.
The only difference that I would make is using AK47 against the government and everybody who tries to take their land.
50 years in the future....maybe 100.
I want to be born in a world where Paleo is mainstream and the dominant diet, where people are outside playing and riding bikes. Commuter trains and bike lanes are everywhere. Local cuisine isn't your only option but it's dominant because that's what is sustainable.
Or...ya know...Firefly would be pretty cool...
