What makes some people threatened by modernity & technology? What makes them
UNCOMFORTABLE w/ modernity & technology, oftentimes preferring to live in the past?
Because some people are afraid of new things and have prejudices against them. Why many of these people are old men? Just because they are so much old they are tired to see things changing: they are used to the past and they are not willing to start knowing new things. It is just a mixture of openmindedness, curiosity and desire of new thinks that make people love new modernity & technology, and we know many old people have not these requirements (luckily there are also old people who feel "young" and want to stay updated about new trends and modernity).
There is an astonishing number of Americans for example, who are not well informed or educated. They are less likely to have been introduced to technology and modernity and immediately feel overwhelmed or "outed" at their lack of understanding when confronted with it or when simply introduced to it. Instead of making the effort to learn or understand it, they reject it. Some people prefer what they prefer from the past and they refuse to change because they are stubborn and see no benefit yet, they refuse to even allow others to show them the benefits.
