Technology is killing us, destroying our humanity.

We completely reject what separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. We elect to plug in and tune out instead of quickly recharge and get back on the road; settling for Hoverounds over lifting weights and having true mobility; 500+ Facebook “friends” instead of two genuine real-life ones.

We’ve become so inoculated from the human experience that we now live in fear of it; we try to avoid or stigmatize those still capable of breaching our digital pacifiers.

What do we do to stop it? Can we change course? At times it feels inevitable, like we’re a deranged cousin of the dodo bird. If only we could figure out who’s leading us off the cliff.
