In his Friday Four series, Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, has once again posed four rather provocative questions for us to ponder.
Do you think society could survive without governmental authority or structure?
No, I think humans are generally selfish and self-serving, so I think some sort of governmental authority is necessary to ensure that critical services are made available and accessible to the members of society. And, the ideal governmental authority would be one that both protects and promotes the wellbeing of the citizens while encouraging individual achievement. Yeah, I know — Utopia.
Do we really need all the technology we have?
Do we need it? No. Humanity has managed to survive for centuries without all of the technology we have today. From my perspective, some technologies make our lives better and I can’t imagine life without them. Other technologies, however (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, hacking) have diminished our lives.
Everyone has a passion that can absorb them for hours and that includes talking about it with others for hours if left unchecked. Do you have such a passion and, if so, what is it?
I have a passion for blogging and yes, it absorbs me for hours.
What have you found yourself thinking a lot of late and that seemingly will not leave your brain alone?
Politics, Donald Trump, the presidential election, and all things related. I’m hoping that when Joe Biden is inaugurated in January, I will be able, albeit slowly, to wean myself away from such things.
