Marxism is a historical philosophy, and Leftism is an economic one, so thankfully definitions still matter. What? Sit in protests and health pamphlets aren't exactly what I mean when I say direct action. Can you tell me about them? I don't know much about the kibbutz, although they seem to be a Utopian religious community. Amish societies aren't really about religion anymore than the Catholic Church or the Shahdom; they're about authority and power and simply use religion as a justification, I.E., themselves being the cherry-picking Right I was referring to. A pre-agricultural society in the context of scarcity caused by the encroachment by the agricultural lifestyle. If you can find an earlier example than that, or one from a region where agricultural civilizations hadn't already profoundly impacted the environment of the society, then we're in business. Plus the domestication of the horse counts as agriculture.
