Sedentary Vs. Nomadic: How can it work?
This is an old question.
How can relations between sedentary and nomadic populations integrate?
We started as hunter-gatherers .. even a troop of baboons can hunt/gather such that they each spend no more than 3 hours a day for survival.
What is it about humans that can be better than baboons? What hours do you put in for survival?
SO we have developed towns and sedentary lifestyles. OK. Can that be saved? Should it be saved?
And if some choose to be sedentary, and some choose to revert to nomadic life - how can they co-exist?
What are the integrative issues? And how might they be resolved?
(edit - to assist the definition of the question: This is about functional community units, not atomised individuals.)
