The Super Happy People (3/8)

After reading this again being directed from the specks and omelettes podcast, I actually have a few issues here. First the super happy's claim the humans are symmetrists but the humans actually aren't. The reason Akon didn't fire on the Babyeaters was the prisoners dilemma. And as for the why didn't we remove suffering? Well by the sounds of it the technology itself wasn't entirely there let alone sorting out the whole values issue involved. Plus no one thinks to mention leprosy or congenital insensitivity to pain disorder. Two things that admittedly probably don't exist in this human society. But I would think the on board master of medicine/ physiology might remember their medical history or at least the known fact that if you prevent humans from sensing physical pain they have no way of knowing then they have injured themselves and even minor injuries can become serious.
