Has anyone else noticed how impatience, lack of common courtesy @ manners saturates society?
I am in my thirties and have noticed that in the last 20 years how impatience has greatly increased (road rage, rudeness waiting in lines, etc.),- lacking in manners and just plain selfishness and rudeness oozes throughout much of society. Is it reversible? Why the sudden change? Exponential increase in technology?
We live in a me first/anything goes society. Some say that teaching people that they are simply animals has caused them to behave more like animals.
Technology has made more of life available to us. More cities, more friends, food, entertainment, work, services and trade. It has opened many doors but because these things do not ultimately satisfy us, it has resulted in a frenzy to experience, explore, perform and accumulate as much of what life has to offer as is possible. Inefficiencies in life like slow traffic has and always will be there but now it is as if there is more at stake and more to lose out on with the loss of a few minutes or an hour.
