: (snip)political goals more than they value food, albeit not for long. All cultures have had eating as part of the repertoire of cultural ritual, simply because the cultures that have survived (or that have been revived for any period of time) are composed of human beings who eat. It bears no relevance to cultural design, which can (as the above examples show) go the other way.

All this is jolly interesting, it doesnt really counter that if a group wanted survival as their primary they would seek to keep what advantages they had over another group who could only gain by taking from them.
