I've been watching this show called "Super Eruption" (I believe that's what it is). In this show, it focuses on a massive storm, a hacker and a city wide black out. My concerns are neither on the massive storm or the the hacker, but it is on the city wide black out. The interpretation of this black out got me thinking. What would today's society and generation do without technology and electricity? In this show, it focuses on the people of this city going in a mad frenzy, trying to figure out how to survive and ready for this massive storm. But lets think back to the "old days" and how they survived without technology and electricity, and any warning of storms. Back before technology (or much of it) was ever invented, everyone had to fend for themselves. They made it seem quite easy to survive without electricity, etc. They never had to depend on any type of technology in order to live like we do now. Which made me think. If we ever had to go through a massive black out like this (which I have a feeling we may someday) what would we do? We've been too spoiled in today's society with everything we have and own now. With it taken away, we'd think we wouldn't be able to survive without it. Which kind of makes me mad a little bit, because the only way we know how to survive is, in fact, with technology. Lets think of our grandparents and great grandparents, what would they think of us? If they could do without, so could we. Right? What would they do in this situation? I guess the point of this thread is to discuss concerns, thoughts, opinions, etc, on today's society and how spoiled we are with all the technology we have.
