Have you ever, in the dead of winter, on a day when everything goes wrong, fantasized about running off to the tropics?

You imagine what your life could be. Swimming everyday in a warm sea, sleeping in a hammock strung between two palms, maybe you’ll finally become an artist, or open a beachside burger stand.

But then your children flash into your mind, bringing you back to reality. How would they turn out, growing up so removed from the modern world?

Well, it’s true. They could start acting uncivilized.
