But Minton's article has no real basis in anything. She simply asks people if they'd like something back that they had 10 years ago. You could ask the same of daily mail readers. You can't pass it off as relevant - we are all programmed to be conservative and resistant to aspects of change that we deem to be less good than we're used to, which is backwards. As I said earlier a lot of people would love servants as long as they didn't have to pay for them. It comes down to whether prevention is better than cure, and where prevention starts and ends.
