Very true. It’s very annoying to see people on their phone all the time. We have the most stuff and yet we are the loneliest. I refuse to allow technology to change how I interact with people. If you’re so unhappy in your relationship the answer is check yourself and perhaps move on instead of insulting the person you’re in a relationship with by over using technology. Not only that, if someone doesn’t value technology in the same way you do, then perhaps they may be onto something. We should pay attention instead of insisting they upgrade to match your tech needs/capabilities.

We were just fine without technology. Lived hundreds of thousands of years without it. We need to get back to the basics. If not, technology (and genetically modified foods) will surely be death of us. This a great piece, and a warning for us all.
