If You Think You Have It Tough These Days

I learned years ago that knowledge, education, technology or what have you will not shield us from the fundamental troubles we have in life nor human nature itself. Especially for those who have lived through the latter part of the 20th century and were told that a college degree would solve all our problems and what not are learning the hard way this isn't always the case.

I've read stories of how the cowboys, gunslingers, and dance hall girls of the Old West had trouble adjusting to the rapid changes occurring at the turn of the 20th century. It took a good twenty years and another generation to really sort things out. We are going down that same road again.

For in much wisdom [is] much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. Ecc 1:18

Two words: job creativity.
It amazes me that the old US Reps and Senators don't even use a computer and the new ones do. That is how come Obama won. The old ways aren't going to work anymore.
