Revolution was the first major change to
create our modern civilization. It happened
during th new stone age, and it caused more
consistent food supplies, and less variety of food supplies, especially protein, vitamins, and minerals. The Neolithic Revolution caused people
who were Hunter-gatherers to stop being
nomads and start staying in one place
and have a permanent home. Those
people started farming, domestication
of animals and plants, technology, and
modern day architecture. Today this
type of society is known as a sedentary
society. Is It Good Or Bad? Was the Neolithic revolution good or bad you maybe asking. Let me explain. If you say that it was a good thing here are some things you should consider. After the revolution when advanced weapons were created, that means the wars would become more serious, you now have bomb threats, guns, explosions, before the revolution it was just a bunch of sword fighting. Also People are now ranked, which means the poor were treated with no respect. All the respect went to the rich men, not even rich women got enough respect. Also cities create so much pollution. If you said the Neolithic revolution was a bad thing, here are some things you should consider. The revolution was the start of technology, literacy, architecture, and so many other beautiful things that make the world more advanced and healthier then before. The Parthenon Air Pollution Conclusion Overall I think that the Neolithic Revolution was good for humanity. I think this because without it we would not have all of this wonderful advanced architecture, medicine and technology that connects people and spreads ideas, rules, and beliefs. Without it you would not have the diversity of people today that make up our nations, people with a million different thoughts that have the power to bring people together. Although there are some bad effects, I think the good outshine the bad. So this is why I think the Neolithic revolution was a good thing.
