I disagree that it's a deciding factor, though. If you place two people,
with the same natural resources (I'm talking specifically about food, location,
etc...) then they are utterly equal (as far as society is concerned). It is
only when those people begin to interact with their surroundings that
they may become more or less better off in relation to the other.
