The Mongols practiced killing the ruling classes in order to subdue the general population, a technique used by other cultures as well. Nonetheless, his scope is much wider as he extrapolates from what transpired there to makes some damning conclusions about how blacks have again ended up a marginalized segment of society in general. Because all people in these societies have few possessions, the societies are fairly egalitarian, and the degree of inequality is very low. He suggests their rule was less burdensome than that of European nobility due to lighter taxes, tolerance of local customs and religions, more rational administration, and universal education for boys. Survivors of the upper classes wrote the histories and expressed resentment of Mongol brutality toward them.
Basically, he says that rather than share equal facilities with blacks, whites have simply abandoned the cities for suburbia, establishing exclusive residential, employment and educational oases remote from urban areas. Genghis Khan also globalized the Mongol army by recruiting many people outside of the Mongol empire. Laid to Waste 4.

Compared to horticultural and pastoral societies, they are wealthier and have a higher degree of conflict and of inequality. Commitment to the group and community become less important in modern societies, and individualism becomes more important.
You can also see the importance of concrete in the graphic below, which illustrates what Smil calls the most staggering statistic in his book: One material that I have a personal interest in making of modern society book paper which comes in a distant third in terms of annual production, behind cement and steel.

If the factory was the dominant workplace at the beginning of the 20th century, with workers standing at their positions by conveyor belts, then cell phone, computer, and software companies are dominant industries at the beginning of the 21st century, with workers, almost all of them much better educated than their earlier factory counterparts, huddled over their wireless technology at home, at work, or on the road.
As we saw earlier, although community and group commitment remain in modern society, and especially in subcultures like the Amish, in simple societies they are usually the cornerstone of social life.
