Touchscreen Era

Our technology advanced so much. Earlier today my father was delighting himself while he watched a series of videos he loves from YouTube. There was a time when he wouldn't be friends with any touchscreen device. While I was in Russia, I used to love using the many apps available connected to transport and delivery services. It was possible for me to order two pizzas to be delivered at my place for a price as cheap as U$1, just because throughout the week prior to that I had taken taxi rides every day and accumulated bonuses.

There was a time when the idea of having a computer looked so distant that I remember an occasion in my childhood when I sat on the floor with an armless chair turned towards me, which I pretended to be a computer as I tipped its seat. That's how simple things were.

Nowadays, when I switch on some news reports on my laptop, I read stories of people from different parts of the world who have been wiped out of existence by some highly developed missiles. With the aid of a technology that my child-self could barely imagine possible, leaders draw strategies that guarantee their interests to reign over people's essential rights. We have reached a point of civilisation where one's lust for power is more unbelievable than the machinery of the Webber telescope. How did we get here?
