When his crews were terrified because they made a mistake in finding the right direction, the Admiral discovered the cause and gave them order to correct it. His belief was also revealed when he got an island, one of the first things he came up with was they had no religion: “As I saw that they were very friendly to us, and perceived that they could be easily converted to our holy faith by gentle means than force”.
Since everything is done according to the elders there is no way you can make a mistake in the community, so no discoveries are being made either. In Harrison Bergeron, the society is a distorted, dysfunctional dystopia. The people suffer greatly without knowing it because they cannot think for themselves.
