In fact it may be desirable for ultra-advanced people that there is some tradition and some modernity in the world. One should be able to travel between a wide range of experiences, not having everything one and the same. Russia’s situation has implications for the broader political sphere, which is bad, but in the case of Zimbabwe, one would not like to see it rush headlong into modernity too quickly. The American model of extreme fluidity leads to extremely damaged people, as I keep finding out whenever I visit YouTube. One needs to be able to read one’s environment, which is not possible if it is changing all the time. People need to slow themselves down and read the signs.
