It's weird modern life, bit like a viking burial at sea, one minute you're on top of the heap, next you're a flamin' hasbeen. In days of yore, cavemen had it simple. Eat, sleep, go clubbing and Bingo, find a partner...or perhaps a partner to play old style Bingo with? The man of the cave brought home the equivalent to the bacon nowadays, for the lady of the cave to cook up a storm or create a smoking one.Yes, there was only perhaps a hibernating bear substituting for a front door to keep the cold out, and if the bear awoke unhinged and hungry...perhaps the propensity to keep the cave family in for a running spell! The only mobiles a rolling rock perhaps to play foot fetish ball with.No charge of the light brigade hooning and club cheering antagonistic membership battles.No politicians knocking on your cave bear door, door-to-door trying to elicit your vote. The only climate change chill out or conversely heat exchange to worry about was the bear taking its annual leave of absence to visit the local fish shop down by- or at least IN- the river. Clawed fresh and pristine sustenance from upstream pure water ebb. The stuff fishy grunting tales/tails were made from. to be told and or eaten around the campfire. No expansive expensive marriage celebrations or bronto pronto abrupt divorces culminating in partners tearing in half a bear skin rug, half a cave in tow. Bone eating utensils plus larder division.The only major pollution spent charcoal residue from the barbeque which in effect nourished the earth rather than polluted. Guess the moral of these observations is that despite the facial hair and occasional club meeting about face, times weren't as hairy as present, and not reliant on our present day contrived, voted in, poor representation leaders. A time bereft of caving in to 'stylists' supposedly shaping our world to their vested interests we ordinary folks more often than not are forced to cave in to. The fossil fuel fools carry on 'clubbing.' :>)
ARE WE SO MUCH BETTER OFF THAN THE SIMPLE CAVE MAN?
All -in- all technological change though for the better mostly, has left us with a lot of modern day thorns.?
