Examples of gatherer in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Interestingly, Paleo Diet is getting extremely popular nowadays. It's also known as: Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet and Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It's basically the diet that includes raw wild plants and animals eaten by human beings during the Paleolithic era (that ended 10,000 years ago.) It's an interesting dichotomy, imho, in light of the fact that most cavemen actually died as early as the age of 25. During that era, very few could make it anywhere close to the modern day life expectancy of 85 to 95 in many countries. There is absolutely no good alternative to balanced good diet, be it Paleo or otherwise, and most importantly, refraining from smoking and drinking excessively. Have a wonderful healthy life!

  2. Henry George:

    If I have worked harder and built myself a good house while you have been content to live in a hovel, the tax gatherer now comes annually to make me pay a penalty for my energy and industry by taxing me more than you. If I have saved while you wasted, I am [taxed] while you are exempt. If a man built a ship, we make him pay for his temerity as though he had done injury to the state; if a railroad be opened, down comes the tax collector upon it as though were a public nuisance.... We punish with a tax the man who covers barren fields with ripening grain; we fine him who puts up machinery and him who drains a swamp. To abolish these taxes would be to lift the whole enormous weight of taxation from productive industry.... The state would say to the producer, 'Be as industrious, as thrifty, as enterprising as you choose. You shall have your full reward!

  3. Marian Tupy:

    Some of the anti-capitalist impulse goes back to that hunter-gatherer mentality and not comprehending the complexity of the market economy, the complexity outpaced our ability to understand it. But even those who don’t understand markets should open their eyes and acknowledge its benefits : Worldwide, wherever economic freedom is allowed, millions of people have lifted themselves out of stoop labor and miserable poverty. Of course, not everyone can reap the benefits of markets. The sick, the mentally ill and other truly helpless people need a hand. But why assume government must provide that help ? Government does n’t do anything very well. Why not let private charity handle it ? I once assumed there was too much poverty for private charity to make much of a difference. But now I realize there is plenty of money, and private charity would do much more if government did n’t discourage it. When the welfare state took over poverty relief, it crowded out.
