We’re living in strange times. Strange times politically, socially and financially. Time seems to move faster these days, and it’s largely in part to the streamlined nature of the internet and other technological devices. Information is so widely accessible today and knowledge so easy to acquire that in our pockets, most of us carry a tool that can access the full repository of accumulated human knowledge. We can also use it to contact anyone across the entire world. We call it a smartphone and take it for granted. Imagine trying to explain to someone 100 years ago the function of this device. To use a colloquial phrase, it would blow their minds.
