I think it is the general lack of empathy , superficiality and instantaneousness of "modern" society, people are lazy and thinking about everything
is a tiresome and perhaps painful process, it will atract unwanted criticism, and labeling, its just so much more easy to read a compact version, or
hear it , see it.
Have you noticed how these days everyone reads someone else's opinion about a great classic? or they buy a book with quotations to memorize and look
cool, but what about the context?, If the idea of a classical author was summed up in a phrase why would they bother to write entire documents?
Regarding Faiths and Religions, i had a very early problem whenever i asked my "religious adviser" why was "my" religion the right one, they would

) the acceptance
there is someone above me, and its not the end of the world.
I also observed this in students, whatever their area of studies was, in their view it was the best, because of reason X, Y. They couldn't accept
reality in any other way.
Why all this personal insecurity? Why does society ( ? ) pressures the individual to this point?
Is it that of a failure to not be filthy rich and perfect, and just have a simple life with food, some clothing (as protection for temperature
variations), some money for an eventuality (a real need, not a Corvette), and having 0 debt, not owing 1 God damn cent to no one? and living a life of
is that SO bad?
