you said:....i recall as a small child,people walking around the neighborhood,greeting other people who were out on their front porches....
j,did the airconditioning,T.V,modern technology...etc
really enhance our humane social life?
are we happier,of course i know life is far easier than before right now,but are we really (happier) than our grandfathers or grand grandfathers?
did we lost something thru our social evolutionary path?
did we lost something,somewhere,someplace?
we know that in life we ultimately seek (the happiness),so is it now more complicated and happier!
or is it i'm ignorantly preaching for a rendezvous with primitivism!
