I look around me at the world in general and the USA in particular and see massive change. 99% of it is change going in directions I don't like.
Individuality and freedom is being stifled at every turn. Even the person-to-person interaction is changing rapidly, people would rather 'txt' than
talk. It appears the vast majority of humanity would rather be 'entertained' in front of their TV than think or act for themselves.
I think most here have read 'Brave New World' at some point. For me it was a horrifying world, but those that lived and grew up their loved it. The
'sheeple' here seem pretty happy with the way things are, they appear to support and even thrive in the more and more restrictive society. It looks
to me like if we had 'soma' people would take it with pleasure.
I feel like Savage. Where is the humanity?
But I have to ask ...is this perhaps evolution? Is the race actually evolving in this direction, is it a actually an 'improvement'? Did early
hominids look insane to the chimps?
I am looking for some serious discussion here, I think its very hard to judge things from the inside and we are all stuck here. Is the 'collective'
attitude that turns most humans into passive and obedient cogs in the larger wheel a move for the better? The greater good for the larger number?
