well that was one of the disadvantange of industrial revolution with its rapid uncontrolable progress independently speaking of the workers' social benefit,workers laws,it's a logical result for rapid consumerism,and selfish industrialism,...a blue-collar died young leaving his kids orphans,a true social and family misery,but what about other examples a happy fisherman on a mediterranean shore or a peasant in a ranch,maybe they were convinced of what their life offered to them,with true family values,social interaction with their colleagues and their family members,with a straight family hierarchy,healthy family reunion at healthy collective architectural spaces, the supper is ready at the right time ,with a little family prayer,no loneliness,the free will to dream about a better utopic life away from tecnology....
are we socially fragmented today,do we still have the real traditional family stereotype,the real architectural space in contemporary homes?
how often some kids see their parents today?
was there (back then in the good old days)houses for eldery,were old people can die peacefully away from their kids social life,without causing any further burden to them!
is that what you call it a better social interaction?
is that a "happier" life for the future of each one of us as we grow old ,is that a fair social parental reward?
not all of us can afford to buy a tropical island ,with lots of servents at your order,a good place for retirement!
even this billioner's dream is philosophically a psychological retreat ,an inherited nostalgia to go back to nature!
