Are we becoming crazy because of obtaining everything that we feel essential?A child, during infancy, wants many things. He makes unreasonable demands and there are parents who indulge in those demands and give the child everything he wants. This is actually disastrous as the child never understands what it means to miss something. The child will fail to realize the value of things that he already has and giving in to all the demands can make him even crazier. This may have some connection to develop the tolerance in a human. I am not going into it now.
Consider another situation. There is a concern everywhere about the growing intolerance and there were threads posted in ISC too regarding this. Think of the situation when there was no mobile phone, even possessing the landline connection was considered a prized one some time ago. The only way of effective communication was a handwritten letter and for anything emergency, the telegram. Well, it's hard to imagine how things were managed in those days. In those days knowing the health condition of the parents living in a distant place was time-consuming. People had to wait for a few days to know whether the treatment is improving the condition and even what the doctor told when they lived at a distant place from their family. They had to bear with this delay and tolerated it. They never complained.
Because of all those difficulties earlier, we are using so many gadgets now. It has enhanced the way of doing things. But now, if people had to wait for a while they become angry and even threaten others of serious consequences. Nowadays when everything is at our hands, we cannot wait for a moment and become crazy. Don't you think by getting all that we want made us intolerant in some way? Are we not behaving like a child without understanding the real value?
