    Who made society as it is now, where if you go against society you are punished greatly, when was everyone able to do what they want and no one would care?

    Society has evolved - it wasn't made. All groups of mammals have societies not just the human kind. Without society and rules of behaviour, we would have anarchy.

    James Society made society circa 1415 in order to bring prestige upon his family.

    it's been a gradual progression since the distant past when we were just a colony of bacteria or whatever.

    Its an assortment of authority, power, entertainment, fashion, etiquette, respect, law, morals and community. It was never made exactly, it simply came to be over a long period of time, and I know as a teenager who questions everything, I don't particularly like society!

    Presumably when people stopped hunting individually & began interacting with one another - money got involved & trade (e.g. I'll give you this shiny rock for your child) developed and people started depending upon others for their own livelihood - and then naturally, hierarchies were established, and then naturally, power was distributed within the construct known as "society".

    I'd have though that the development of agriculture would've been significant in the development of society.

    No we wouldn't. We would have chaos - society exists in anarchy, anarchy is simply the absence of rulers.

    There was never such a time. We were always in groups.

    Proof?

    Even when we were cannibals? Even when we were apes?

    What? Unless you're some religious dude who believes in Adam and Eve **** then you're going to believe that humans evolved and there wasn't any two people responsible rather thousands hence always in groups. We were never cannibals, some humans were but most weren't.

    And yes, even apes are social animals. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_animal

    Clearly I'm not "some religious dude" if I alluded to the fact that humans were apes at one point. -_-

    Being social animals and operating within the boundaries of a social construct are two entirely different things. A homeless, unemployed, itinerant hippie murderer/cannibal is not part of society, but he still falls under the category of "social animal".

    You don't have enough proof to assert, with 100% confidence from the looks of it, that humans have always had a "society" - which is what this thread is about.

    If you want to be pedantic, be pedantic. I'm obviously talking generally. I'm sure there are some humans that weren't a part of society but most were.

    And once again I must ask - how do you know that?

    You have reached the limit of how many posts you can rate today!

    Society was probably invented by fish billions of years ago.

    It was I. I was feeling sadistic so I created something we rely on which can destroy us all.
