We are no longer impressed

“Fact is, we are no longer impressed by the miracle of modern agriculture, affordable electricity, air conditioning, smooth roads, suspension bridges, winged-flight, or any number of other things that used to unite us with a shared sense of wonder. This is why we blame the plumber for charging us “too much.” We resent him, precisely because we need him. The very jobs we told our kids to avoid, are the same jobs we bitch about paying for. From healthcare to roadside assistance, construction to computer repair — we begrudge the skills we don’t possess, and disparage the people who have them.”
