Disability and Cultural Memory

  Man playing bagpipes

It’s possible to say that disability is simply a hangover from the Victorian age. People with physical or mental differences are not second class citizens save that they are made so. Nowadays we know better. We have better technology and far better methods for assuring inclusion. What principle then, keeps steering us such hapless strugglers who must fight to be heard? I think disability proves the need for behavioral therapy for everyone. Well yes, of course. And so does bagpipe music.
