this is a solid question
I think this is most easily explained by remembering that in general wizards are pretty much universally depicted as being far behind everyone else in terms of technology and making up the difference with magic, and the possibility that it’s not just magic they’re behind in but culture in general; they’re in a society where trains are respected as a viable form of transportation, but cars are seen as a bizarre, disturbing outside force that isn’t really needed by anyone with any common sense, and guns are pretty much completely disregarded as having any value at all. if you put all of this together in terms of a time period that their society matches up with, they’re basically somewhere around 1850. give it about a century or so and we’ll see what Andy Wizardhol comes up with, basically
"Life was not easy, nor was it happy, but she did not expect life to be easy, and if it was not happy - that was a woman's lot."

The results blew away professional ecologists. The invasive species has no predators on the Florida coast, so if they were to migrate upstream in rivers, they could pose a threat to the ecosystem.”Learn more from NPR.
