THE WORLD TODAY! WE'RE ALL TERRIBLE! COLLAPSE IS IMMINENT? EVERYBODY'S TEXTING BUT NOBODY'S TALKING!!!! The world is full of silent, brainwashed lemmings staring at their phones and only the poor, abandoned innocence of a child is able to step away and see how broken we are.
Uuuuuggggghhhhhhhh! Can we all just relax for a second and get over ourselves?
Yes. People text a lot. Yes. People take photos of things a lot and post them online and hope that they get liked and commented on. Yes. People sometimes sit across from someone and both of them are looking at their phones.
Yet you still walk into cafes full of people talking. People still hug and kiss and say I love you. People still get into big, pointless debates about things they could easily just look up online. They go for hikes, play with children, go to concerts, travel, read at the beach, stand up for each other, and have long, intimate conversations in romantic restaurants.
Sure, there are dangers to life filtered through the internet, but chill with the Orwellian disaster scenarios, shall we? I mean, I think only two or three people would walk into the manhole before the others were awakened from their stupor by the screams and thuds.
