If you want me to analyze any people’s history I can find good in those who held kinship territory, and not find good in those who didn’t. It’s really that simple.

If your kin are not disciplined enough to hold territory they will not be disciplined enough to create competitieve commons.

If they cannot create competitive commons there will be nothing to examine – no record of their existence – to comment upon.

Commons create intergeneral capital. Kin groups (genes) create intergenerational capital. And to some degree you must trade off one against the other.

Of course as always, the more eugenic your people the better their history.
