Some people are so dramatic about things that don’t really matter.
They convince themselves that conveniences are a necessary part of life, and they honestly believe that they could not survive without the conveniences that we have today.
I have actually met people who would probably die without their air conditioner. They run their air conditioners from the moment that they are forced to turn their furnace off, and they don’t stop using their air conditioner until their house is freezing late in the fall. If their air conditioner stops working for any period of time, you would think that they were going to melt because of how they complain all of the time. If you honestly think about it, do you really think that air conditioners are that important for our ability to function? For thousands of years, we have managed to survive without an air conditioner of any kind, and we were fine. IN fact, I would like to argue that we were better off without air conditioners. Sweating is not a bad thing for your body. Sweating helps to rid yourself of toxins. Also, without an air conditioner, people would spend a lot more time outside being active. With the air conditioner, we are forced to spend a lot more time inside where all the cool air is. At some point, someone told us that convenience is what brings the good things in life. Air conditioners would make our life so much better. But I disagree. I think hat conveniences have made us more miserable, but we don’t realize it.
