Soul-less automatons. That's what I see more and more around me. And all that because of smartphones. People have been dehumanized and addicted to their plastic toys. They use their cells to escape the grey reality and live in an electrical dream of rainbows. They will wake up too late when they will realize they haven't actually lived one second.
The moments of real happiness are shorter and shorter in the high tech world.

...I agree, it's just that most haven't as yet acquired a taste for human flesh...

IMO the majority of the current younger generations have bought into the idea that "happiness" is only to be found in possessions or artificial stimulants. Until they reject this concept, and turn their backs on consumerism they will never be content, value or be happy with the natural world.

They don't even use their smartphones in a SMART way. Most of smartphones owners play stupid 2D flashy games instead of reading an ebook or listening to an audiobook.
