America has a “need for things to be cheap” problem. It is why we have an undocumented worker issue to begin with. They tried hiring suburban high schoolers to do this in the 1960s. It failed miserably. This is hard work that is decades away from any real automation and if we want to grow food on our own soil, we either have a pay high prices at the supermarket or expect undocumented workers to do the hard stuff and at least give them basic human rights.

So to focus, one has to ignore – a lot. The more inputs you have coming into you simultaneously from different directions with insufficient (normal) barriers to entry, the possibilities become overwhelming. Of course, big picture, life is short, so that’s certain. Slightly smaller picture, if time is scarce and you have to eat to survive but you want to thrive and not just survive, time becomes a commodity to spend towards increasing whatever the metrics for thriving might be at the cost of the time used for the effort. So, it goes to a question of purpose.

It’s definitely different socializations between men and women. In traditional marriages, in society the wife has to pretend to submit behind the husband in public. This is true in more traditional societies to this day such as the less citified but more village of Egypt, India, Africa, South America, etc. But it’s behind closed doors, it’s the wife’s domain – in a normal traditional marriage anyway. It’s sort of a deal they have and it’s a successful recipe for a long term marriage that can work, although not always as abusive homes of course exist, particularly in isolated places. Considering the divided traditional tasks, it’s a logical arrangement in societies where man work outside the home, woman work inside the home, etc. And since the only place that husband and wives could traditionally have conversations would be in the private home – not out in public because of “face” – it makes sense that the wife would and could be expressive as that’s her domain whereas the husband needs to stay quiet because, well, it’s her turn now in exchange for the outward social submissiveness.
