ideal society


But to answer your question; I don't have any control over what other people near me do, so what I think of trade is irrelevant; it would happen regardless of how I felt about it.

That's not very realistic tbh.

You don't honestly have much ground to stand on when it comes to what is realistic; quite a few of us used to be ancoms, too.

People would mine for materials in order to trade them with other ancom communities to procure things they lack. If one community has milk, but not carrots, they would need to cooperate so both communities can have milk and carrots.

Food is one thing. Material for technology is a whole other beast and also what brought about this conversation to begin with. Why would anyone want to do something as dangerous and laborious as mining when they can put that same energy towards procuring necessities?
