The iPhone crisis

Filed under: General Articles — admin @ 11:32 pm

As we all know, society has changed since the advent of the iPhone. For me, an iPhone is a tool, just as the internet is. I use it to make money, communicate, and browse. But, I do not let the internet run my personal life nor do I go around staring at my iPhone 24 hours a day.

Whenever I go out, and particularly to Asian areas, I notice that Chinese seem to be glued to their iPhones. It is common knowledge that Chinese have some of the least developed social skills of any cultural group. But, this problem is not facilitated by burying their noses in books studying or iPhones while ignoring the world around them. Culturally, Chinese hate talking to strangers as well which compounds the problem. Every time I see a Chinese girl with an iPhone, the only thought that pops into my screen… I mean head is, “here we go again.” But, whites also do the same thing.

Shutting other human beings out of your life is not socially constructive behavior. Additionally, children being born might rather be born to a poorer family where the mother is emotionally available to the children instead of being focused entirely on her iPhone.

For those of you who don’t know, I am studying Chinese again. I started in 1986, and spent a lot of time in 1989 and 1990 studying. But, now I am upping my vocabulary and trying to get more practice talking before I go to Shanghai. I have noticed that I used to think that Chinese girls were unfriendly, but when I talk to Chinese guys, some of them take offense. Why? Being human is how God created us. Some of the people I am talking to are not completely human. Sorry to say, but true. I guess the females are less hostile to me than the men… Hmmm. What a world we live in… no wonder I’m lonely. I’m tempted to say, but I still have Mrs. Meao … aka Sheba, but she passed away many years ago and only visits me in dreams, even when there is no chicken involved!
