Too often the trend in our society is for people to be separated from either other, to be cut off from the great mass of humanity, and in doing so to be dehumanized a little bit more with each step.
Cars have taken us off the streets, where we used to greet each other and stop to chat. Cubicles have taken away a bit of the humanity in working, as have factories and even computers to some extent. Television has planted us firmly in our living rooms, instead of out with other people.
Don’t know where to start? Here’s an extremely incomplete list, just to get you thinking:
… it all matters more than you know.
How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a weary world.
– William Shakespeare
