That quote is meaningless, all the matters is what the mod decides the world is like. Immac could say that people have grown wings from fallout radiation. All the science cannot make it untrue if the mod decides it to be that way. People in this world haven't grown up with social mobility, the decline of this world started in 2012, no one is alive from back then at this point. Following this brutal wars, catastrophic meltdowns and weather related catastrophes, plagues, genocide, and complete economic collapse I doubt too many people grow up with social mobility. Heck social mobility is far from universal even now. Maybe I missed something but I am under the assumption that there isn't cheap solar power and television everywhere for everyone. Right from the mod, most people are completely destitute. From the mod himself, "Ultimately the worlds manufacturing and commerce, with a few notable exception upon which the few powerful elite build their influence, has returned to some semblance of what it was prior to the industrial revolution or nearly so. " If Immac says that I got the wrong idea then I did and I am sorry. I am going to stop discussing it here to avoid filling the thread with OOC.
