Reader's note

n the preface, Shaw speaks of simple primitive societies, he says, were easily governable while the civilized societies of the twentieth century are so complex that learning to govern them properly can't be accomplished within the human lifespan: People with experience enough to serve the purpose fall into senility and die. Shaw's solution is enhanced longevity: we must learn to live much longer; a centenarian should be less than middle aged. This change, Shaw predicts, will happen through Creative Evolution (evolutionary change that occurs because it is needed or wanted. This is why he focused on Darwin's work so much in these plays that show the evolution of us. This book would be an interesting read for anyone interested in natural history.
