Technology came into existence to help us the human race with minial tasks and to help make tasks faster done and more efficient. It was just idle
boredom that lead to game systems, computer systems for every household, email, texting, ipods, etc...those are things that are there just to fill the
void of boredom created by getting tasks done quicker. But, here's a novel idea, why not spend that time left on the nuclear family where you
actually talk instead of play the wii together or play a board game instead of sitting at the computer chatting with other people you don't even
know? Ok, I love my computer just as much as the next guy or gal, but it can be utilized for other things, did you know when I was in school they said
that one day in the future all students would be attending virtual school. Think of how much better it would be if our kids ateended virtual school?
huh. You know they wouldn't have to worry about their appearance for social acceptance, the government wouldn't have to provide their lunches, etc.
Now don't get me wrong they'd need to have social activities, sports and clubs they could sign up for during "Virtual" School but they'd be like
formed in hubs, so like say my three different schools here in the area would all be participants in the same football team, chess club instead of
three different teams, it would be school level based, for instance k-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Just a thought. As far as phones, mp3 players, and that, they
can be utilized still and even upgraded. People would trade, barter whatever they have for the better models. But, personally I think we should just
work with tech that has a very applied task like computers, everything else should be downsized. Entertainment is a luxury, and we spend way too much
time centered on those luxuries IMO. Of course you can see I am not a big gamer, and give me a woodstock type music concert over an MP3 any day of the
week. I would be happy.
And I must add if people spent more time on their children and with their children, depopulation would automatically happen, after spending so much
time with the little nippers, people wouldn't be so gung ho about having five six seven children. Sorry catholics, but even you would stop at two or
less, if you were actually spending more time with them!!!
