The Worst Mistake in History of the Human Race

When you study the Neolithic revolution, this is an interesting article (yes it is a few years old) by Jared Diamond arguing that we were, in many ways, better off prior to agriculture than we are now.  Diamond argues that sexism was less, classes were non existent, we had more leisure time and more.  Not that Diamond would shun his warm house in winter, but it does bring up some interesting discussions for your ancient world history class.
