Before Capitalism, what is now the United States was just a sandbox of tribes living off little more than the fish, nuts and berries they found in the woods for thousands of years.

You had me up to this point. This view of the lives of Pre-Colombian native peoples is patronizing and ahistorical. They weren’t all living some pastoral, Edenic existence; they had cultures as rich and varied (and occasionally as fucked up) as any other group of humans. I know you’re making a point about whether we’ve benefitted as much from supposed progress as we might think. Please don’t minimize the fullness and variety of native people’s history to do it.
