Comment of the week

“Basic technologies like bicycles, clean wood stoves and even the humble apple corer seem to offer many benefits with fewer drawbacks. The most sophisticated technologies that change the world not only have the most disadvantages but tend to create their own needs. Let’s take cars as an example. Initially they allowed us to get to places faster, but the end result was that the places people needed to go tended to be further apart. Now we can’t live without them.
Some technologies offer the opposite of what they promise. Social media, for example, is supposed to bring us together, but loneliness has become omnipresent in our society. A recent survey reveals that 61 percent of Americans, 3 in 5, describe themselves as lonely. The Plains Indians of the 19th century probably suffered little from loneliness. They lived in tribes of approximately 300 people and the lines between family and community were quite blurred. Basically, the entire tribe was one’s family.
Choose your technologies wisely. I live in Maine where there is plenty of snow. My neighbor’s snow blower needs gas, maintenance, and sometimes it gets stuck or breaks down. My snow shovel has never broken and helps me maintain six-pack abs at 65!”

-Well said.
