Not only is getting harder to live in American (thanks to the Biden administration), it is also getting harder to live without a smartphone.
"I've grown dependent on it, and that kind of worries and scares me" said Victoria Marshall, who wrote about it in The Federalist, "And with the infrastructure for existing without a smartphone in the west steadily decreasing, I think that should scare other people. It's just encouraging smartphone addiction."
It's because we are now using our phones for just about everything, whether is getting a menu at the restaurant, showing your boarding pass, or gaining entry into work, or even your residence. And as for that smartphone addiction?
"We are very much addicted already to our smartphones" Marshall told KTRH, "The average American checks their phone about 96 times a day, which equates to about every :15 minutes, and then teenagers obviously, they spend an average of 9 hours a day on social media, which is not good."
Some good news? A group of high school students in Brooklyn, NY are seeing for themselves the adverse effects of social media and too much screen time, and have decided to give up their smartphones completely.
Hopefully, it's a good sign for future generations. In the meantime, the rest of us are going to have a hard time living life without one.
