In Which Business Becomes Noted

Social commentators always complain about the increase of the rate society moves at. There is always someone complaining about how we move to fast these days, zipping from place to place, never taking time to apprecaite the finer things in life. While there's something to be said for kicking back now and again, being busy isn't a bad thing, it's just the nature of existance. Being bored and doing nothing is worse than rushing around a lot.

Besides, if things are really moving faster and faster every generation, we'll hit up against the speed of light eventually - which actually brings me to a better argument than I was going to: if we were moving faster, things would be getting slower, so there.

I guess my point is fairly simple: cultural conservatism rarely is to the benifit of society as a whole.
