Observations:

Imagine a cultural prosthesis so complete that the average person will not experience hunger, plague, tribal danger, extreme pain, or thirst in their lifetime.

Imagine being an educated community leader, and not knowing the process by which a room is illuminated at night, how potable water reaches a house, or how a mechanical wave from their voicebox is heard thousands of miles away.

Imagine walking through an unfamiliar neighbourhood, at night, past a group of male strangers, with little chance of any molestation.

And then, imagine being told that such an inferior culture is not worthy of survival. In the spirit of Postmodernism, if we can achieve a consensus with such a defeating narrative, it shall become a truth.
