2 Timothy 4:3-4 - "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Great Concern, and Despair

   I’m rather concerned with the degradation of our society as a whole. I blame technology to a degree. It’s nothing short of aggravating how I can no longer finish a sentence in any conversation lately.

   I thought it was bad when people stopped using their turn signals; however, they continue to get worse on the roads. They cannot turn correctly in addition to speeding. They need to realize that they’re not in NASCAR, and will not lose points if someone gets in front of them.

   I blame services like myspace, and facebook for leading people to believe they’re special. No one is a unique, rare snowflake. We are all  the same semi-evolved bipedal hominid. Ten fingers, ten toes, two eyes, and a nose, we’re all the same you see. All of you, and even me.

   I fear that at the rate our society appears to be eroding away it won’t be long before all forms of what we once knew as manners may cease to be, and might not even be missed by the remaining population.

   We now head toward a future of everyone marching forward while staring blankly into their smart devices in the empty hope that someone has a concern for what they’re doing, and saying. All the while holding little to no respite for their fellow automatons.

   The once bright flame of interpersonal interaction is dimming slowly. At least in the future we’ll have some fairly impressive new motorcycles.
