Happiness or Freedom?

Charles Payne brought up an interesting topic on his show Friday on Fox Business.

The Amazon purchase of Whole Foods prompted him to discourse on where we’re headed. Warning: the woman is a liberal par excellence. Judy Woodruff is her mother and her father is Al Hunt, both lefty “journalists.”

Personally, I don’t think you can have happiness without freedom. You can have pleasure, but I can’t imagine happiness once a person is enslaved to the tech world.

I worry that today’s millennials embrace all the devices without a thought of the impact they will have on society. What will happen to personal contact? Relationships? What about employment if robots do a lot of tasks? Are we setting ourselves up as gods in our hubris? Will we dump the family as the foundation of civilized society?

Are any of them pondering the consequences or are Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and tech titans crafting a new world?

It’s troubling.
