|Certainly, fifty years ago life was not as easy at it seems
to be now. Communication, technology, medicine, living standards are
incredibly different from the ones our parents and great parents got to
know. Progress is a phenomenon that amazes us day after day and it is
without hesitation a daily concern.
Our lives have turn to be easy going, not really demanding and comfort
has just become a daily duty. Computers, cellular phones, and the most
advanced technology is invading our privacy, and seem to be more than necessary
to keep us going. Years, ago their needs were not as much as ours now,
they could live, with
less comfort but with more peace, and the stress to obtain materials goods
was not a priority in lives.
It is true the fact that progress changed our parents passive world into
our daily active one, based in incomes and in competitions. It is good to
feel we are part of this new world, capable to offer a great variety of
options, capable to let us choose our best. Live without progress, in all
senses would not be a life, and the challenging spirit of men would not be
meaningful with not progress at all.
