Remember my review of Napoleon Chagnon’s Noble Savages from a few months ago? Of course you do, and here’s an article that goes into the subject more, specifically pertaining to how Dr. Chagnon’s experiences relate to what Roosh went through on his little Canadian adventure.

It seems relatively sedate, but I don’t think it is much of an exaggeration to say that at least half of what we hate about modern society comes from cultural anthropology.
