Are Smart Phones Making Us Dumb?

How is it that people are more likely to record an assault on their cell phone than to use that phone to call the police and report it?

What is wrong with people? We have serious problems when someone sees another person being assaulted and thinks the right thing to do is record it rather than call for help.

And it seems to be more than just eliciting really bad judgement, picture this… there’s a guy waving his gun around on a train and nobody notices because they were all in their own little worlds on their smart devices. People finally notice when the gunman shoots a random passenger in the back of the head. I’m not making this up. It really happened.

Are people really so self-absorbed that they don’t even notice something bad about to happen right in front of them?

Put down the cell phone and the iPad and pull the ear buds out of your ears. We need to reengage with society and start paying attention. Maybe then we can figure out why it is that most people won’t go out of their way to help other human beings.
