Is modern society destroying the soul of humanity?

  • Yes it is

    Yes, modern society is destroying the soul of humanity. Modern society is filled with soul crushing laws and regulation. Technology allows us to do and see more... From our house. The soul of humanity is a free spirited, free willed phenomena that thrives in nature. When we are connected to the world via computers instead of nature, the soul of humanity suffers. Great thinkers of the past were able to do so because they studied the world around them. That world consisted of nature, not crowded streets and factories. We have disconnected ourselves from the planet itself and live inside of a bubble. Yes there is still creativity and freedom, but the opportunity for advancements in any areas other than those already discovered are pretty limited. Because of the advancement of society, we have come to feel as though we know all there is to know about the earth, and that any ground-breaking questions such as "Is the world round" are no longer taken seriously by anyone, common folk and scientists alike. We will continue to grow in population and technology, but are moving further and further away from ancient technology that was lost at the end of the previous age.

  • Yes

    Although it is not the only factor, I do believe modern society is destroying the soul of humanity. There is an obvious degradation of mankind's morals as can be seen everywhere around us today. People aren't as willing to help other people as they once were. Hopefully one day this will get better, but until then we just have to grin and bear it.

  • Of course it is!

    You are obligated to work for someone who makes demands of your time and energy and when and how that occurs, yet you can't make meaningful suggestions otherwise to them. The entire society in this modern era is wage slavery defined. Then when you're too old to do the things you wanted to, only then can you start (if you're lucky) to persue them.

  • Animal rights first.. For without animal rights there can never be human rights!

    If living ethically is important to you, please remember that there is nothing humane about “humane” animal farming, just as there is nothing ethical or defensible about consuming its products. When confronted with the fundamental injustice inherent in all animal agriculture—a system that is predicated on inflicting massive, intentional and unnecessary suffering and death on billions of sentient individuals—the only ethical response is to strive to end it, by becoming vegan, not to regulate it by supporting “improved” methods of producing dairy, eggs, meat, wool, leather, silk, honey, and other animal products. For more information, please read The Humane Farming Myth. Live vegan and educate others to do the same.

  • Modern society is destroying us

    Modern society is infecting our minds and everying we do and forcing us to abide by certain social trends. We are not allowed to do things of our own free will because we just feel that we are pressurised to being like all these famous celebrities. We live in a world where we have to text instead of talk and speak like a grown up baby. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

  • The Soul of Humanity is Ever Pervasive

    The soul of humanity is always and has always been about seeking progress through adversity within and outside our own cultures for the betterment of the human experience. Modern society provides many amenities for our lives, but rarely clarity to our own sufferings. Perhaps our great progress has only delivered a great craving for further progress. True freedom cannot always be won in these societies and times, but it can always be won with the willingness to truly acknowledge the soul of humanity and apply it to your life.

  • How could this be

    These two subjects that are being talked about go hand and hand with one another. Of course it is not destroying it however this is a silly question to even ask. If anything it is helping advance society into something that is better for mankind has a whole we should embrace.

  • No, the soul of humanity will be in tact as long as there are humans

    What does this question even mean? Are we saying that humans last century, or two centuries ago, or five centuries ago had more "soul?" How does that even make sense? As long as there are human, our humanity will be in tact. We will express it differently, and under some circumstances we will even be able to get in touch with our souls in new and different ways.

  • There Are Always Dreams

    It can be easy to look back on the accomplishments of thousands of years and think that we have done little in the modern day in comparison. It is easy to look at the drudgery of a bad or common day and think that the world is just growing duller and more mechanical. But now more than ever, we can understand our situation, we can comprehend what we have and what we could have. In understanding what might be, we grow dissatisfied with what is, and our dissatisfaction causes us to dream, and to reach out for something better. The soul of humanity is found in such dreams, and in those great attempts that stem from them, that dare to reach beyond what we are and instead look to what could be.
