In today's hustle and bustle of everyday life, men, women, and children
walk past one another without even a friendly smile or hello. As global
technology grows, communication between individuals gets more distant and
less personal. Even in families, messages are left on the answering
machine or as notes on the fridge. Therefore, with todays' highly
competitive technological world, it is vital to receive and maintain some
old-fashioned inter-personal communication.

Communication throughout history progresses from face-to-face to smoke
signals, to the Pony Express to Canada Post, to the telephone to telex
machines to modems. The fax machine is so impersonal that neither voice
nor hand writing are used, and personality is lost. Now a video link where
the person can see the caller and feel a personal touch, is trying to re-
establish the original methods while using high-tech systems. Thus, as
technology increases, we can clearly see attempts to get back to the "old
way" through usage of time saving methods.

One benefit of high-tech communications systems is the ability to make
previously impossible communications possible. Think of the father and son
separated by an ocean, one in England, the other in Newfoundland. This is
where the telephone plays a role. It facilitates an almost instantaneous
connection at a reasonable cost, and bridges a gap. Fortunately, this is
now made possible by satellite systems launched into orbit by a recently
developed rocket deployment system. Aside from this, people should attempt
to communicate with people in their immediate surroundings more often, and
use the more up-to-date technology sparingly, and only when appropriate.

If a walk is taken down the street, or perhaps a ride on the subway,
there will always be people seen with "Walkmans" or similar escapism
devices. People are turning off the world, blotting it out, and turning to
their own drummer. This in turn, affects their listening skills. In fact,
listening to a "Walkman" over the halfway point for more than forty minutes
a day, three days a week, is a leading contributor to permanent hearing

This syndrome can also be taken relate to television watching,

"Is Moral Egoism Correct?"

Moral Egoism states that "one never does wrong if one does what's in one's own self-interest; it's always morally acceptable to just look out for number one" (Barcalow, 295).
