When there was no so-called advancement of civilization, people used to eat on utensils made of silver, gold, at least metal. Now they're using plastic. And still, they are proud of advancement of civilization.

So just like . . . we can give so many examples. When there was no so-called advancement of civilization, people used to eat on utensils made of silver, gold, at least metal.
