"The Hadza do not engage in warfare.
They've never lived densely enough to be seriously threatened by an infectious outbreak.
They have no known history of famine;

The Hadza diet remains even today more stable and varied than that of most of the world's citizens.
They enjoy an extraordinary amount of leisure time.
Anthropologists have estimated that they "work"—actively pursue food—four to six hours a day. [Rain-forest 'pygmies' "worked" even less.]
And over all these thousands of years, they've left hardly more than a footprint on the land."
