There has been lots of different things that would make human beings into what they are in the modern world. This is because when people evolved from the various apes that had walked the deep jungles of this earth. There were many proto humans that existed but homo sapiens were the most complex of them all.
This was the ability that would be referred to as intelligence and it gave man an edge over the animals that walked the world with them. But, there were other factors that aided the climb of man and turn it into the most dominant thing that this planet has ever seen since. The development of workers compensation insurance came from this.
The mammals and other kinds of animals had a system that would make them safer or deadly, depending if the creature is a predator or prey. So, wolves and lions, are known to form social groups together. This makes the act of hunting down far larger prey to be much easier and allows them to become apex predators in that process.
This act keeps the risk of hunting much lower than what it is. There are other examples of this that has existed within the animal kingdom or insect kingdom to be more accurate. Bees and those little red and black ants are quite known for their ability to make a community for themselves.
These colonies, or in the case of bees and hornets, hives, are usually very straightforward but unique at the same time. All of these bug dens have one thing in common, they are run and operated by a queen. The queen has many followers and are defended by the entire colony or hive. Each are born into the roles that each should do.
These are the hallmarks in which human society was built upon. When one is born in a human community, they are given a role upon their birth on this world. These roles depend on what gender the person would be and the family that these children are born into. This changed over the past centuries but took some time to do so.
The first kind of occupation that a person could have back when it all began was quite different than what it is now. It began pretty simply. The first kind of job that people had were hunter and primarily as gatherers. This was a time where the men and women were delegated what work they could do based on their gender.
Time passed on and it grew better for those that wanted to have an occupation. Men and women alike were given the chance to become what they wanted. The most feasible and fastest way to gain some wealth was to become a merchant that could provide all the needs of a person with their goods.
The modern century is pretty kind to those that need work. The pay is usually good and the benefits are great to have. But, there is something that one must get before they are able to get a great paying job. That one, little, thing is going to college. This is important as education is a big thing.
