The whole concept of valuing attractiveness is a recent phenomenon that began in industrialized and city environments.
Of course, primitive cultures, unlike us, don’t have entire segments of commerce devoted to appearance. Because they live a subsistence lifestyle, aboriginal cultures value competence with life-sustaining skills.
This is an important message for our culture. It’s critical that we learn skills related to clothing and sheltering ourselves as well as the ability to find or grow food. The homesteading movement is focused on these efforts.
Teach your children basic skills so they’re not dependent on others.
