But at the band-level, it can work. After all, isn't egalitarism a basic form of communism? Everyone shares in everything, etc.
By the way, welcome back, Shadow T!
Aah, but then you're not talking about Communism as Marx defined it. Besides... I still don't think that i'd work. And if it was to be put to the test, we'd have to gamble for who'd be within the 5-10% to be allowed to see it. The rest would have to die, or the hunter-gatherer model would irreversibly destroy the land that it occiupied...
Oh, and thanks for the welcome...
