We can of course keep our eyes open, but I was speaking from JA's position, whose eyes were perhaps not that open, because of the times she was in, just as we cannot see things which people 200 years from now will see.
In fact we see a lot but are unable to do a thing about it, and continue to do it.
I see JA in a similar situation.
Another point is that;
In 'Emma' it was necessary to mention servants. They coloured the life in a small English village, which was what JA was painting.
In Persuasion, it is about Anne, emotions, suffering etc.
Just my 2 cents :-)
