The period of upheaval that most upsets me is the use of electronic media for personal relationships and communication. Even though people seem closer than they used to be, particularly those living overseas communicating with family and friends, there isn't the letter writing and the phone-calling, and the personal contact that we had in previous years that brings people closer together. Along with this, is a trend, for young people in particular, to ignore books. There's no longer an emphasis upon reading the classics, either Western Literature or Easter Literature. People don't read anymore. They don't communicate effectively, verbally, or in writing, and this deterioration of their language skills I think will lead to long term consequences, if they haven't already in terms of societal divisions and violence.
