Mobile phones, electronic keys, credit cards, debits card. We were told that all these things would make our lives easier. Give us a sense of freedom. Yet I carry around more junk these days than I ever did. I remember around the year 1980 when I carried just one key, a wallet with only notes and some loose change.
But don’t complain. Keep smiling like everyone in The Twilight Zone episode It’s a Good Life. Pretend that all this stuff is helping us. Pretend that it’s vital to be able to talk to anyone immediately. Pretend that debt is good for us.
