Not much of choice; one of the clumsiest of Dare to Dos.
Truth is against the stream of common thought, deep, subtle, difficult, delicate, unseen by passion’s slaves cloaked in the murk of ignorance. Vipassī Buddha

I don't think it's meant to be taken literally. It's making the point that there can be the exact same environment and conditions. One group will make it into a hell; another, a heaven.

Of course, but this foodie story makes "heaven" residents crippled to the point of being unable to live in "heaven" on their own. They are only "happy" because the village (State gov. of heaven) takes care of them. :group: :freak:

Oh okay, I wasn't thinking about the potential political message. Yes, that could be a political message he was slipping into the story.
