What important truth do very few people agree with you on?

Technology is good for society but bad for the individual.

Because it increases our baseline of happiness.

In post World War II Germany, my grandpa was happy when had something to eat and a place to sleep.

Me in 2021 though?

Looks in mirror…
Looks around apartment…
Heavy sigh.

Looks at bank account…
Looks at pile of unpaid bills…
Heavy sigh.

Let’s watch some Netflix.

The smart TV stopped working?
The AC broke down?
Meh, let’s just order takeout then.
I have a $5 coupon after all.
Also, I need a couple more shirts for that vacation next month.

“We buy stuff we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like”

Grandpa didn’t even have the internet growing up.
But me, I need more and more just to feel okay.

Technology is good for society but bad for the individual.

Despite this, I wouldn’t wanna live without it.
