Time and time again I read articles about how unsociable America has become, they warn us of the "Zombie" state we are in. H2H will be a thing of the past (H2H - do you know what it is?) We hear predictions of where we may be in 10, 15, 20 years from now. They claim none of us will know how to actually interact with one another, in the real world.
Still wondering what H2H is ?
So I took a look back, at how different the world was then, and how we know it today.
Commuter Transportation in today's world, you cannot get on a train, plane, or automobile without 99% of the people around you, on some type of electronic device:
Not in the old days, it was different (the experts tell me).
People "Socialized" , they "Interacted", life was so much "Friendlier" back then. It was an era that today's generation will never have a chance to experience.
Just see below how friendly they were in the old days.
Kids these days, now this is a topic we hear more about than anything else. Today's youth, they are so out of touch, they probably have no clue there is an actual "Human" sitting right next to them? Right? Just take a look:
Back when the "Experts" were kids, life was much different. They talk about the social skills we have lost, the human interaction, they way they spent time together,
Just take a look:
All this has been lost with onset of social media.
The old days were full of Chivalry
People on the street - they were different also.
Today: Look, nobody is even aware of whats around them?
Not in the old days, things were so much more in touch, they socialized, it truly was different?
Lets not forget about family time:
Family time has changed dramatically since electronics and social media, have come into play
Back then, they all sat down, read a book, it was special back then:
Why without an electronic device in our hands, we wouldn't know how to react to each other during "Family Time" :
The more things change, the more they stay exactly the same.
Next time the "Experts" tell you to take away the electronics, and get back to old fashioned family time?
Grab your kids, turn on the xBox, turn on the surround sound, crank it up, and have the time of your life, for tomorrow, you may end up "Back in the OLD days"
Hope you enjoyed todays look back at the good old days!
