my reaction on theme parks

a theme park is a immersive space fantasy place that are made real in theme parks, complete with reproduction of a complete world that includes hospital, police station, general stores,
the military base are theme park, as a totalitarianism control immersive space, complete with reproduction of a complete world that includes hospital, police station, general stores, immersive
a country can be a theme park, as a authoritarianism or democracy control immersive space, complete with reproduction of a complete world that includes hospital, police station, general stores,
but is a store a immersive space? not to be confuse with a man cave? or a women's den?is your favorite coffee shop a castle? as a feudalism control immersive space, complete world that includes a stereotype control behaviors from servant in costume with personal service that only last but a few seconds?.
