Are we losing touch with one another? Are we sinking towards something like Roman civilization, when bloodthirsty spectators eagerly watched men fight to the death in the name of entertainment, now just on high-def screens? Or could empathy in society actually be enhanced by the capabilities of technology?
Many believe that the current age of technology keeps us more connected. I disagree. Computers, cellphones, iPads, etc. serve a purpose, but it's not to keep us connected with each other. The disconnect amongst people is startling. Instead of interacting with a real, live human being, we read emails or texts. Or, perhaps we read a blog. We're far more attached to technology than people.
