When the Minority Becomes the Majority
“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” – Desiderius Erasmus (a constant motive in The Country of the Blind short story)
Using his outstanding imagination and his ahead-of-time world views, H. G. Wells makes an interesting experiment in the short story The Country of the Blind: he creates a world in which the minority becomes the majority. In his attempt to conquer a mountain crest, main character Nuñez discovers a society comprised only of blind people. He thinks he can conquer them just like a mountain crest using his sight, but will he be understood by those deprived of sight?
