The reality is that Western, science based medicine is often both too expensive, and not cutting it anyway. Furthermore, the many benefits that Western medicine alone can offer are often restricted to people of privileged races and classes.
The great lie that maps cure us of is that you can separate imagination from reality. People claim maps are built with mathematics, statistics, and outlines of the real, actual landscape. However, in my view, maps are like love. They take things in, rearrange it all, and then present to the world an image part truth, and part imagination.
