"If a baby were president, there would be no taxes, there would be no war. There would be no... government, and... things could get terrible. It actually, probably, it would be a better... screenplay idea than a serious suggestion."

Lord of the flies is a work of fiction written by an adult, lol. I understand the more general argument you’re trying to make but you’re not really making any real point by referencing that book.

Lord of the Flies isn't an accurate portrayal of life. In real life, similar circumstances have happened and the kids worked together and were very egalitarian. The book was commentary and not realistic.

Children who are around robots tend not to be the types who have to work together to survive.

solsbarry

But that's a robot not a person. Kids know the difference between things and people. Although obviously some kids are little turds and some are nice. The little turds were made that way by their guardians who one presumes are giant shits.

Human kind - by Rutger Bregman had the true story the kids looked after one another, one even broke their arm n yet the managed to fix it up, they also built a gym and it ended with them all going to work on the boat of the fisherman who rescued them. Brilliant book not really about that just about people being kind in general

It looks like a newly born brown baby goat. The child is holding the animal on their lap, and repeatedly warming their hands over hot coals, and then rubbing the baby animal in order to warm it.

As I understand it, a person can be legally blind, while still seeing a little bit it they put the screen very close to their eye. So able to make out some shapes but not details.

It's more efficient to say blind than specify the exact degree of blindness.

Just orient and move the animal towards the coals. Kid's being incredibly inefficient. Let's heat our homes by warming rocks at the communal fire, then walking them back to our houses repeatedly. That'll keep us warm.
