Letter: A radically simplified life

Life has become radically simplified in the minds of average high school and even college educated Americans.

Letter to the Editor

Life has become radically simplified in the minds of average high school and even college educated Americans. Our once complex adult lifestyle based on engagement in earth science, heavenly spirit and community civics has been reduced to a dull litany of joyless activity.

First graduate, then find romance, go to work, buy a home, get friends, send kids to school, improve skills, talk on the phone, listen to music, play games, find a group, eat out, indulge addictions, retire, travel, hate, sleep and die.

Most Americans, especially younger ones, no longer believe their individual efforts can make a difference anywhere except when employed in their own interests. They no longer want to participate in government or church, and are even losing trust in technology, as it gets corrupted and employed against them.

Whatever could be the answer to this conundrum?
