I tend to think of rationality as a sign of being civilised, intelligent,
moral, rather than a sign of being biologically fully formed. A child can be
rational too, and would be if it weren't for all the irrationalities in the
parenting memeplex.

Our culture prizes things like reason, making good decisions, optimism,
pride in humanity. Others don't. The two kinds of culture aren't the same,
and they aren't equally valuable. One of them is abhorrent.
