XRuggerATX saidMy god...culturally this country is getting closer and closer to ancient Greece.
Off the subject of this thread, and with Rugger's quote in mind; I believe that though we may rely in some part on our technologies still, that we will inevitably will progress towards a lifestyle similar to that of peoples from our past. This is mostly based on the idea that if you don't know where you've come from, you don't know where you're going. I believe it true for civilazations and individuals.
Our countries 'obsession' with trends and progress don't give us a window to critically analyze the past so that we don't make the same mistakes, or to stick to the same solutions they had. Not saying everything Was Better way back in the day. But if you think about it. Organic and Natural food in our diets, people starting to turn to support local farmers, the green living 'movement', and more people seeking their individual spiritual paths other than those governed by huge churches; it's all somewhat a reversal of what was long concidered progressive living.
I believe, that if society can have a healthy stable mix of some of the principles from the past, and some of the advantages of the modern living, than maybe our future won't look so bleak... to some people.
