Diamond saids this because the people aren't dependent on technologies and the children have to actively engage themselves in the world instead of planting themselves in front of a TV. New Guineans are also able to survive in harsh environments that could easily kill a westerner like the jungle or the deserts of Australia where the aboriginals live.
