Overview

Certain wholesale aspects of man-making with a skin of infinite delicacy that life will harden very speedily, with a discomforted writhing little body, with a weak and wailing outcry that stirs the heart, the creature comes protesting into the world, and unless death win a victory, we and chance and the forces of life in it, make out of that soft helplessness a man. Certain things there are inevitable in that man and unalterable, stamped upon his being long before the moment of his birth, the inherited things, the inherent things, his final and fundamental self.

Among all Utopian writers, H.G. Wells might be the only one to show signs of rational thought. As with other writers, his thinking developed over time, and that development shows in his writing. This might be the earliest story in which he asks the question, "What if everyone just stopped acting stupid?"
