I think the reason to do something in the social realm now is that
America has all these spaces that are inhospitable to that
kind of interaction. And also as a whole we’ve just kind of
stripped away the social constructs that were always in place —
little things, from manners to speaking properly to the right
way to introduce someone, to more complex rituals like balls
and Masonic societies. All these things had intricate structures
in place that would allow someone to be in public and give them
some sort of water wings so they could interact. Now we don’t have that.
