Societal Collapse

There is no doubt that technology has transformed civilization. Most important of all, information is instantly available to everyone. But a profound question remains: has technology actually made our lives better? Looking beyond the countless benefits we've all received from modern technology, there are downsides, as well. Cell phones and other wireless devices emit radiation. People are now virtually "on-call" 24/7 and many people have gotten into the habit of getting upset if you don't reply to them immediately. Playgrounds are empty while kids spend hours in front of the TV playing video games. Social networks have turned many of us into pretentious and narcissistic sociopaths. We're more connected yet more alone than ever before. Telling ghost stories around a campfire has devolved into everyone playing with their cell phones around a campfire. Aside from the social deterioration resulting from our inability to use technology wisely, moral and ethical values are degenerating rapidly, as well. People are becoming more angry, more violent, more mentally-unstable and less patient, compassionate and intelligent. What kind of a society are we creating?
