Human Regress

This is my final post here, so I wanted to end with something curmudgeonly and not particularly law-related.

Human progress is undeniable, but equally undeniable is that progress makes us arrogant. We overlook the losses than accompany our gains, and we needlessly sacrifice hard-won knowledge and experience. Here are three random examples.

Fruits and vegetables aren’t nearly as nutritious as they used to be.

You multi-taskers out there are succeeding only in doing multiple things badly and wrecking your brain while you’re at it.

And finally (crude language warning), people have forgotten how to sleep, breathe, brush teeth, sit down, give birth, bathe, and poop the right way.

On an even more random note, though, people are still pretty cool.
