That is an interesting comment, but then i was thinking, the Guarani may have had it very structured within their communities but when the priest came they made it more structued according to their idea's. the Guarani did not have a need for huts and a church, they lived naturally in the forest, therefore just the simple fact that they became more of a permanent society shows that the priests made them more organized in this way. so essentially, yes, that was their way of life before the priests came in. they lived their lives by the beliefs of communism, and they did in fact show the priests that this was their way of life and it was successful to their way of life. the priests may have organized it more also because they needed to get money for the church and therefore needed to have a clearer defination of it, therefore a more structured system in order to provide for their very presence there.
