Thus I have two people in my relationships (2) who do not own mobile phone. I'm not talking about smartphones, but the good old basic mobile phone that serves just a purely practical thing, you know. One of them also have no car, and I suspect even not having a driver's license (yes it is suspect). Strange for a father forties urban bohemian anyway, right?
In the first category, those who are hostile to the new technologies a matter of principle that borders on political and ideological commitment, in which we find indiscriminately anti-globalization, refusing the consumer society and environmental activism (which often goes all the way). These people have nothing against technology as such, but to refuse all collateral damage they cause would be assumed, even when failing to balance the progress they are for humans, and even for humanity, let's be crazy.
In the second category are people who, despite socio-cultural and professional rather high, ignore new technologies, because they do not see the point, instead favoring a lifestyle in which contact in real life is fundamental. I speak of contact in real life for want of a better term because I know the difference with the human touch: the most common mistake committed by those who are refractory to the internet, for example, is to think that this is a tool of alienation and isolation. We all know that, properly used, this is exactly the opposite: see the popularity of social networks, forums, and instant messaging.
The yes-life (as opposed to no-life, hahaha) are also those who do not use automatic stop but will withdraw their money from the bank to pay for everything in cash (as some traders, but for other reasons ... ). We could certainly find many other examples of rejection of the technology.
Of course, you can live and be happy without technology, it is sometimes a deliberate choice and perfectly respectable incidentally brings us to reflect on the vanity of the race at the last gadget (I know what I mean ...), but is certain: those who make that choice for fear of losing the "real" human relationships are wrong.
It's an illusion to think that technology is alienating for the man. The whole history of evolution, and its phenomenal acceleration in the 20th and 21st centuries tend to prove the contrary: the printing of the railway, aviation on the radio, print media to television, major innovations and permanent search for technology
that have mass are those that have enabled man to communicate and get closer to men.
