Imagine, if the knowledge of transportation still stands on horse riding, how long will it takes to travel from Ibadan to Kaduna, maybe like 6months, or using canoes on our water ways. Also, it is impossible for the people in this decade to live without mobile phones on their hands.
However, to enjoy those innovations to the fullest, you need to be financially buoyant. Johnson quotes: Resolve not to be poor: whatever you have, spend less. Poverty is a great enemy to human happiness; it certainly destroys liberty, and it makes some virtue of impracticable, and others extremely difficult. It is not a sin to live a life of royalty even if you are not from a royal family, in as much as it is in legitimate way.
