What is wrong with American society today? Simple: Automatic Doors. You’ve seen them on the Starship Enterprise as well as your local Walmart. But
they are the cause of our ruination and downfall. They bring nothing but arrogance and uppityness.
You see, there was a time I lived in a small town that was next to a larger, but still small town. In this mini metropolis was a very unassuming
store. You know the kind. The one that has held a number of different dreams of million dollar ideas only to become a 99 cent store. Yes that one.
It was at the entrance of this store where once was a fully operational automatic door. In its prime it would almost say ‘Oh, hello there. Please do
come in’, and in a grand and triumphful manner open itself as if you were of the highest royalty. We then would proceed through the ingress without
thought for the lowly door providing its expected service.
Then, during a changing of dreams, the door became nonfunctional. It was almost as if it turned its back upon those who stood before it. Yet those who
did stand before the door were all like “Why did this door not open for me? Am I not high royalty? Should not this be done for me as I am so
special?”. They would hesitate and then open the door themselves and be ever slightly annoyed that they had to actually do something on their own.
So now we have this belief that we are soooo special that even the doors should move out of the way before us. And if doors should behave in this
manner, should not all aspects of our lives be this way? That driver who is travelling 2 mph slower than us, do they not know who I am? Or that person
who believes differently than I, do they not know I have a superior thought process?
And this my friends is why automatic doors, and not guns, should be banned.
 Coming soon: Why we need to reintroduce bears into daily living.
