I have a theory. Now this is a theory in progress, so bear with me as I work through my thoughts but it seems to me that while technology, wealth and abundance have given us many things that better our lives, they have also made a contribution to our downfall… Everything is expendable. No longer do we take care of or take pride in what we earn or work for. We can simply replace it with a newer or better option whenever the mood strikes us. Cars, cell phones, computers, homes, jobs, relationships…

I’m guilty of it. My contract on my cell phone expires and I’m looking for then next coolest thing. My car starts to have mechanical problems and my first thought is to trade it in. My current computer is going on 4-years-old and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t be thinking about getting rid of it before it crashes. A job starts to stress me out too much and I’m ready to move on.

Is it possible that our easy access to continually evolving technology has just fed into our nonchalant attitude about…just about everything. Is it possible that it has turned us into a society who values nothing, not even the lives of others?
