Signs that you might be living in a Nanny State
Arabanoo was kidnapped by the British colonisers with the idea of forcing him to be an interpreter. Arabanoo, if this description is to be believed, adapted well to captivity and enjoyed walking around in European clothes [and leg irons]. He adapted so well to captivity that after 4 and half months later he was dead, infected with smallpox by his captors. But I'm sure wearing the latest ball and chain fashions made up for the inconvenience of involuntary captivity by invading aliens and premature death.
