While I appreciate the point wrt modern day, research shows many Neolithic communities practiced garden style intensive farming on small plots of land. They weren't dominated by land barons

Effort+biodiversity = high productivity 🌽🥦🍓🥕🥓

The economy & society is independent
That's misworded. Economy & society aren't independent from food production strategies. But there is no simplistic 1:1 correspondence.

Modern ideas of farming are embedded in monoculture. In the past farming was more diverse, requiring more labor input resulting in resilience
For more on ancient food production, see my @eidolon_journal article, "In Defense of (Studying) Food"

Hint: polycultures were common and ancient Greeks ate dogs... (I hope it's an interesting read!)
