Convenience is deciding

Individualism is the product of convience.

Without the microwave, dishwasher, and instant brownies, we wouldn’t have the time to focus on ourselves. But without inconvenience, we begin to look for a path from what’s easy to what is the easiest.

Therefore, we demand a quick fix to complex problems because everywhere else we look we find the quick fix.

But as we slowly strip away inconvenience, we also lose the part of our lives where we find joy and meaning in the struggle. There is no personal satisfaction in heading straight to Go and collecting 200 dollars.

How many light years ahead of everyone who lived before 1983 are you just by having access to the internet?
