"Well, I'm sure there have been amazing technological advances in the industry, but surely you must have some sort of training program".

Full quote: Well, I'm sure there have been amazing technological advances in the industry, but surely you must have some sort of training program. It seems unfair to presume I won't be able to learn.

I know that political cartoons are suppose to really depict whats going on in society, but I think this one is too true to be ignored.

What has become of our society where we have added further stigmas or unrealistic requirements on our children?

The technological boom of the last 10-15 years has resulted in us being too dependent on technology. How many people reading this feel naked (or lost) without your cellphone? How many think that it's much more difficult not going on-line for the 25 hours of shabbat than to not smoke during that time period?

Society thrived and people lived perfectly well in the era before this technological boom.

Dont get me wrong, I'm all for technology, the question remains tho, by how much should rearing our children rely on it?

When will we realize that and stop putting an emphasis on technology.?

The possibility that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

It's not only technology, it's the food we eat, transportation, our reliance on chemical medications etc. On the time line of mankind, it's only about 100 years since we're living like this. We've all but lost our natural survival skills. How many folks know how to make a fire from only natural elements or how to gather water from dew ? They've recently started teaching these skills in a local chug here in Modiin. Even if we were able to regain our survival skills to some extent, the fact that parents spend less and less time with their kids is bound to have negative repercussions somewhere down the road.

Shabat Shalom.

You are right. Maybe having these kinda chugs all over thye country or world for that matter might be a good idea.

At least we religious Jews have Shabbat and Chagim, so that we have imposed times without these technologies! I can't imagine not having this weekly break.
