The Cunning of Modern Neanderthals

Henry Bonner – Strategy and Council Letter (Switzerland) –

Time passes without effort … but work and activity require effort … They require to fight against “entropy,” the tendency of knowledge to get lost, the wealth of dissolving, the roofs to go to abandonment, and plans to fall into the water …

The man tries to improve his living conditions by fighting against entropy … He builds stone to avoid having to mount or dismantle a hut or a tent … He maintains fields and farm animals to secure his food…

Nature, out of kindness of heart, gives him many tools to help him … stone, fire, seasons, wood, water sources, fish from the sea, wheat grains, rice , or corn …

He just has to implement them in order to improve his way of life …

Nature gives … but it can also remove.

Sickness and hunger await man at the turn since Adam and Eve …

However, the tortures of Nature have at least a simplicity … The man can protect himself, and prepare himself … He can build his house on pilots to escape the floods. It can “diversify” its crops to mitigate parasites. It can be isolated against heat or cold. It can boil water to kill bacteria … or put a plaster to heal an injury.

These efforts provoke little controversy … No one is defending the rights of bacteria to infect hosts … nor hurricanes to sweep the houses off their pedestals.

Civilizations are born and flourish through improvements in technology … and resource management. They allow to nourish and to make to live more people … and to protect themselves against the weather and the favorites of Nature …

” Man is a wolf for man”

 The man wants to ensure his survival … but also to promote the persistence of his offspring … the continuation of his clan and his family …

Since his beginnings, man has also to face a reality … He may want to ensure his survival and the continuation of his genes … but he must “share” resources with others.

Everywhere, tribes and clans stand … everybody wants to keep his lineage and his blood …

Sometimes clans can help each other, and trade – exchanges …

However, men see the resources of others – his wives, property, lands and fields – and he does not like the idea of ​​being overtaken … He instinctively knows the danger of being surpassed in strength, or in number …

Through the years, men have developed answers, instincts, in order to judge on the moment … in order to choose trust – exchanges and cooperation – or mistrust.

A lack of calculation or insight … misinterpreting signs or gestures … or ignoring signs of danger in others can end in annihilation … in death.

With filtering through the centuries … tribes have emerged, to disappear from the surface of the globe after generations … They may have underestimated the danger of an invasion … or lack of forces to defend themselves … or refused to see a danger … until he found himself with a knife in his throat … and his women in the hands of the kidnappers.

For many millennia, the default aggression towards the unknown has given the most chances of survival for the tribe and the individual …

If the individual or group did not recognize a threat in time, they could quickly find their death … Exterminating in advance the enemy, or the unknown, settled the situation, eliminating the chances of “getting it wrong.”

Within the groups, people had the means to prove their loyalty … their place in the tribe … show their desire to keep the group alive, at the expense of rivals …

Throughout history, loyalty to the group has undoubtedly exceeded in importance the kindness, the intelligence, the sympathy, or the creativity …

After all, the group must first ensure its survival … Without being able to defend it, man can not accumulate wealth … To invest in maths, philo, or poetry has no interest if the tribe has no future …

Aggression and loyalty to the group appear in many primates … and man has preserved and developed it …

Many humans have existed throughout history … but most of the “branches” of families have disappeared.

Survivors have formed groups to feed and procreate … and also to attack or defend themselves against enemies …

These behaviors have been part of human DNA from the beginning … Proximity leads to conflict … According to the archaeologists, many human groups have left the “cradle” of Humanity around Ethiopia the researchers nowadays in any case) after the advent of man.

According to the genealogy tests on people today, these groups have not managed to go far.

They have not managed to survive conflicts with Neanderthals and others. They have not managed to adapt to the conditions of the climate in Eurasia …

They have no descendants these days.

For about 50,000 years, no group would have managed to survive outside of Africa.

However, around 75,000 years before today, a handful of groups would have managed to get out …

In a short time, all the human competitors among the humanoids of the planet – Neanderthals, hommo erectus, or others – have disappeared …

Nobody knows … but the aggression and cohesion of the group – perhaps with a mastery of fire and stone weapons – could explain how they finally managed to expand, exterminating everything in their path.

After millennia, the reality has not changed … Man must know to be wary – an excess of confidence can cost him his life … He always keeps in his bottom recourse to violence and destruction … as the “memory “In its genes of conflicts throughout the millennia.

Prosperity and wealth also bring about the forces of destruction

The more a society accumulates wealth and wealth, the more the temptation to seize it by force and violence rises …

Trade and trade can create wealth … but do not make guarantees …

Nothing beats the ability to get hold of a good without having to pay or bargain.

The superiority of forces gives the ability to overcome the resistances of others.

In addition, the loser can not make a reply … The arguments and the speeches have no place … The enemy does not have his “say” either by seeing his camp on fire and the blood flowing among his companions.

As a result, cooperation and exchanges lead one day or another to predation … A group succeeds in forming a force, a contingent, in order to benefit from the efforts – of the work – of others without the need to respect the rules of Trade and Commerce …

This group begins to confiscate, redistribute, tax, and impose … They seize the goods of millions to redistribute them to their supporters and accomplices …

They manipulate money to siphon off a company’s savings … and they impose thousands of rules and controls on industry – on labor, remuneration, sales, or payments – increasing their control, always promising more to their supporters …

Sometimes the group does not do enough to “kill” the economy … They live at its expense without completing it …

Conversely, sometimes the situation ends in disaster or famine …

Today, the authorities around the world control money and use it to siphon off the savings and productivity of ordinary people.

They may stop in time … or not …

What to do…?

Having gold allows you to get your money out of the banks … but the state can oppose it.

The United States prohibited citizens from having gold during the Depression of the 1930s.

They wanted to prevent people from defending themselves against the manipulation of money …

Nothing prevents the authorities to ban gold again, here in France …

Some of them recommend having gold abroad … with a service to keep its gold in Hong Kong or Quebec …

Others go even further … They recommend to have a “place of withdrawal” in the countryside … or to store basic goods … allowing you to survive without access to your savings … and if the State bans gold .
