Rory is the host of The Friday Four
Do you think society could survive without governmental authority or structure?
Nopes! It would be total anarchy and chaos. We need rules and laws. And we need a government to enforce both.
Do we really need all the technology we have?
Not all the tech we have become dependent upon. Some though is useful, like means of transportation, the tech used in agriculture and food and finally the communication. Some can argue that we can survive with it all and that is true that human beings survived thousands of years without these. But there is no doubt that they make life easy.
Having said that, somethings are superfluous, like social media, constantly running news and the millions of gadgets that we buy and forget to use.
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 like to talk about taboo subjects!
I mean subjects like faith and politics. These are considered taboo in the polite company so I discuss them only with people who are open to talking about them. Life and death and the deeper meaning of life are also subjects that I can talk about for hours, but only with willing listeners.
What have you found yourself thinking a lot of late and that seemingly will not leave your brain alone?
The current situation has taught me the futility of having too much stuff. I think about downsizing my possessions and about keeping things simple.
The US election has also invaded my thoughts to the degree of annoyance. I wish they would declare a winner and get on with the process.
Thank you Rory for these thoughts provoking questions.
