There are numerous ways as to how technology can make us feel alienated. We are now simultaneously closer and more distant than ever before.

In this age of massive technology use, there is still a pining for the past that is taking place among many generations. Very few people would disagree that technology has made life easier and safer. However, life can also be made calmer and gentler without the use of some technological advances.
