In a way, the way our culture has developed, is a good thing. But on the other hand, there are some drawbacks. A benefit, for example, could be dish washing machines. It saves time by making a machine do all the labor that was once purely hand-done. The washing machine and dryer, for dirty clothes, also fits in this category for the sam reasoning. Something that is lacking, I would say is communication. Sure, modern technology has made communication more instant, but it has also made it less personal. Snail mail isn’t what it used to be.
I don’t really know why this came into my head, but there you have some ramblings of myself on a late Friday night.
