Primus Mootry: Learning to cope in a changing world

(Continued)

What I am inclined to suggest is that our yearning for the past has blinded us to the nature of the challenges of the new world in which we live.

If my belief is indeed valid, then, as a society, we are in deep, deep trouble. We are like the people who once believed that flying machines, called airplanes, were impossible. Or the people who believed that the automobile was just a passing fad and that the horse and buggy were here to stay.

In any event, change itself is not the problem. Bluntly put, we should not worry about our changing world, instead, we should worry about changing ourselves.

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.
