That we're getting more technologically advanced, but all we're using it for is to make the world MORE competitive, not less, and we're getting LESS able to have free time to enjoy our lives, not more. I just feel like, this is the opposite of what it was supposed to be. If this is what technology is really going to do, then what's the point?
What has "the future" delivered us? Shortages, inflation, more expensive everything.
Oh but we have Twitter and Tik Tok now, I should be thankful for all of this "progress" - BS.
If this was going to be the result, I wish we'd just left things well enough alone.
Hell, the '90s felt more futuristic than today even without all of the phones and stuff, because it felt like the world was turning a page, that things were getting better. Today it feels like everything is devolving, going backwards, getting worse, and they call it "innovation".
I feel like words like "innovation" are code words for "we found a way to use tech to extract even more money out of something, but service isn't going to get better, in fact it will probably get worse, and it won't have any real effect on improving humanity's overall quality of life".
Makes "the future" seem really underwhelming, disappointing, and just dumb after all.
