My answer is obvious;
We are being controlled by technology!
It’s true that those who invent new tech are in charge of it but for the users, it’s a whole new different ballgame. We start by getting used to new tech. Tentatively we progress along and then we are hooked. We are dependent upon it and it starts to control how we use it.
Be it your smartphone, your WordPress editor, or your Alexa! We are being manipulation by technology. And behind this technology sits the big companies, who are making us too reliant on their tech.
Remember the days of using paper maps or verbal guidance to find a new place. Now it’s your GPS, and if that doesn’t work, where will we be? Or checking the weather by looking at the sky! Now if the weather app says a chance of rain, we are sure to carry our umbrella with us regardless of the sun shining brightly.
And it is partly our fault that we have let the technology control our lifestyle and choices.
