I’m 57 years old. When I was a kid I use to ask my parents, “What do we have now that you didn’t have when you were growing up?”
The list was remarkably small. About the only thing they could think of was jets and televisions.
If my kids asked me the same question today, I could give them dozens of items off the top of my head. Lots of the new stuff can be very helpful. For example, having a cell phone when your car breaks down on the highway. But other things have a real dark side.
