Einstein and How Society is Going Crazy

Einstein, Vienna 1921./Albert-Einstein-Archiv,
If you, like me, have been bumped into by people on the streets not watching where they are walking, or entering an elevator in a residential building where no one greets anymore, but everyone is glued to their cell phone as if they are either the most important person in the world and reviewing their urgent messages or are the most inane individuals who need to keep playing their games wherever and whenever, or worse have been a traffic victim, because the other driver was texting, then the following from the blog, The Burning Platform, may resonate with you: "The day that Albert Einstein feared may finally have arrived"

Although it's doubtful that Einstein actually made this statement,

 "...I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots....",

whoever did say this, I fully sympathize with the meaning and how it applies to so many of us who seem unable to "live" without their smartphones.
