Riches And The Garden Of Eden

  • Posted on May 4, 2017 at 6:23 pm

Starting with the disclaimer that this is a purely secular set of observations having nothing to do with religion, I would like to bypass all the theological controversy and bigoted opinions of those who should know better with the assertion that something actually ‘did go wrong’ within the human psyche, and this schism, which undeniably destroyed a pre-existing harmonious and joyous relationship with nature, happened precisely with the concurrence of agriculture.

And it is agriculture I would like to focus the blame on, for if money is the root of all evil, then agriculture is the root of all money. It is true, is it not, that agriculture is the harbinger of civilization? Therefore, whatever civilization has bequeathed to us ultimately can be found in the implementation of agriculture. That is to say that literally- language, the mastery of fire, tool making, just to name a few technologies- have only a small role in the development and rise of civilization. On the other hand, civilization would be impossible without agriculture. (By the way, ‘civilization’ by its root roughly just means ‘urbanization’.)

When heard, the word civilization is generally received with a positive connotation, but in fact civilization is also directly responsible for the greatest man-made horrors upon this earth that we have ever seen. It is responsible for mega wars, genocide, and perhaps most tragically, thousands of years of mass slavery.

Another facet that one might explore about agriculture is that while it tends to feed masses of humans with a monotonous diet of food of dubious nutritious value, at the same time it destroys nature (or the garden if one prefers). But most importantly the advent of agriculture soon resulted in societies where 80 to 90 percent of the population became slaves, 10 percent warriors, a tiny percent scholars and architects, and the tiniest fraction the owners and rulers. That it is a fact of history but my question is: have things really changed?

Antique Furniture and Decorations for Any Occasion

It seems like everyone today is out to make money. Sacrifices are often made to make way for mass-produced moneymaking. Furniture, for example, is often sought after today for its style, light weight, and inexpensive price tag. Much of the quality that used to go into furniture has been lost to modern manufacturing. This is one of the main reasons that leads people to the world of antiques. Antiques are classified as collectible items that are over 80 years old. They are usually prized for their beauty, rarity, condition, utility, and sentimentality. Antiques are unique, historical, and beautiful. Antiques were made in a time when craftsmanship was highly prized, so they are made by expert hands. You can purchase antiques from auction houses, estate sales, and antique shops. There are many great antique sources that provide quality antiques in good condition. Many antique sources will import their antiques from overseas. Nations rich in history and design in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia are often huge sources for antiques. Antique stores likeCastle Antiques, Inc. import regularly from overseas to supply you with the most beautiful, historical, and unique pieces. Antique Furniture and More >
