I’ve seen the statement in the title making the rounds lately. People need to think about this more clearly. First off, technology has made us weak. As a people we are much different than those who were living in 1861. Our every need is a car ride away but we don’t even need to do that. That which we desire is brought right to our door via apps on our phones. Our lives continue to get easier and that may not be a positive. For the most part, this society is a bunch of indoor cats. That’s the bad news about us.
What makes today different than 1861? I think anyone who’s paying attention can clearly see it.
