High Tech Leads To Isolation

Have you noticed? I don’t have to talk to anyone anymore. Amazon prime and free shipping allows me to be able to get anything I need shipped right to my front door. No talking. No bargaining. Just click a button and it shows up. Groceries? No problem. Just order them up through the Walmart app and have it all delivered to your door at the best time for you. Want to get some fast food? Easy. Open up GrubHub and place an order. Food shows up at the front door in minutes. Want to “talk” with friends or family? Send a message on Facebook or Snapchat. I can do all of this and not interact with a single soul. I don’t know what this is going to lead to in the future. Can we get any more isolated? This country has become so rich even the average middle class citizen can live like a king. Services at the press of a button. Anything you want at the press of a button. Soon we will have self-driving cars. So, when you order an Uber to get a ride somewhere an actual robot car with nobody driving it will take you anywhere you want to go. What does this do to people? Where is this leading? The population on planet earth is at all-time highs and still rising but it feels like the only people that exist are the people delivering me my requested services. It furthers my feelings towards a lost sense of community. 15 years ago, none of this was possible. If you wanted food, you had to go out and get it. Talk to people, see people, and interact with someone whether it be a cashier or just random people along the way. If you wanted to talk to your friends, you would actually call them and talk or even meet up with them to spend time together. Not everyone was sitting behind a computer screen or a cell phone. The lack of technology forced us to interact with each other, and now it is gone. Likely to never return. My source below is about millennials and how they are the most lonely generation. I believe the rapid increase in technology plays a big part.
