I think society was better when life was harder. I grew up with nothing. Most of us did. I remember one of the best "toys" we ever got was the huge cardboard box the refrigerator came in.
This entire post is absolutely spot on. Just wanted to reinforce a point of view on you similar lines of thinking Cliff:
A Michael Hoff quote from "Those Who Remain (link)":
- Hard times make strong men
- Strong men create good times
- Good times create weak men
- Weak men create hard times
What we call "hard" or "difficult" today compared to 20, 30, 40, 50 years ago has drastically altered mankind's extrinsic desires. And not being exclusive to a specific biology, in general, we (mankind) do not struggle as much as recent years due to technology advancements and complacency among other external factors.
Love your perspective on keep making your products better "just because you can and want to" Cliff. Thanks for making a world class product that does everything I need it to.
Cheers to the OP for calling this out
