The term "Trades" has an old use in our understanding, but it is really inclusive of all the things we hunt and gather for in our lives. Anyone that works provides services to other humans for the exchange for money which then gets traded for protection, food, housing, etc.
Years ago people had to know how set traps, make brick, fell trees, churn butter... These are all still necessary in our lives, we just trade our capacities for them, allowing other to do them for us... Many years ago, swinging a hammer, instead of hitting wood chips with rocks, was a huge technological improvement that not everyone could do... some still can't. Today's technology is no different. We just trade for it and it's use.
Something we have always done.
And when the dust settles, global social interaction, **under the use of common fairness/trade rules will just continue to keep us trading with each other for the things each of us can't do ourselves.
So the main reason we will survive and the cheetah won't (at least not without us): Social interaction.
**Trading with people who don't have the same trade rules, ie: child labour laws, pay equity, etc., as the trader will destroy rather than build.
Is this a Fabreze moment? C.Y.D. I'm voting white elephant. 2˘.
Thou hast fallen into thy newb's most inanely set trap. Thou hast answered him and given him credibility.
