Highlights

  • It suggests that a degree of skepticism might be useful. Does the scale of concern match the scale of the problem, or is it more about misplaced nostalgia than real ill-health? Concerns about the pace of life and all its attendant pathologies are often shot through with the idea that society today has lost something it had before โ€” something ephemeral, but nevertheless fundamental. A belief that at some point, in the not-too-distant past, people felt, behaved, and worked better. Lives were more relaxing, communication less hurried, and society more genial. But history suggests otherwise.
