Modern technological everything is wonderful, but now we’re a society of spoiled babies. We’ve lost the joy that comes with satisfaction from our hard work and patience. In fact, we can’t find the motivation to work at much of anything that doesn’t deliver instant gratification. And that’s a sad loss.
