Progress

We in the “developed” world have inherited an enormous treasure chest…

of labor-saving technologies and healing medicines, safe drinking water and grocery stores, smart phones and air conditioning, anesthesia, X-rays, and corrective lenses, automobiles, airplanes, and weather satellites, literacy, libraries, and free speech, to name but a few.

I would never refuse to enjoy or employ any of these conveniences, luxuries, and liberties…

… but at what cost? And to what end? I am compelled to ask.
