Tools such as the flight simulator pave the way for a natural, effective way to learn physical skills. The physical world is indeed complex, but we understand it well enough to build complex physical simulations. The world we live in is social as well as physical, so to teach social skills in a similarly effective way, we need to build social simulators. Unfortunately, the social world in which we live is not all that well understood. This is unfortunate because the main province of education is learning how to function in the social world of humans. This is what history is about, this is what literature is about, this is what psychology, economics, foreign languages, and nearly every subject except science is all about. In fact, much of science is about this, too.
