Variables and Tables

HYPOTHESIS: I believe that the majority of cases will show that all cultures /tend to expand their territory, which includes land, people and overall wealth, through aggression. These cultures cannot survive on their own by means of farming and/or hunting alone, therefore, they must take want they can not provide for themselves. They would either take all that belongs to the neighboring community for their own use and kill everyone or take over that community/, enslave the men and use the women to expand their own community. Some of the cultures that fell into /the/ this category were the Yanomamo, Comanche, Maori, Jivaro, and Somali. The /aim /center/ of this paper is to present where the origin of expansion in a community begins, whether it be the structure of the society or the way the children are raised.
