16 Cold Illustrations That Describe The Sad Reality of The Existing Society

By Nenad Dojcinovski, 11 June 2018


Things change, and that’s just how it is. We can’t stop innovation and progress, but we can only embrace it. It’s foolish to think that technology goes forward on its own because that’s not the case. Technology goes forward because a selected group of people didn’t gave up on their dreams.

This is not only the case when it comes to internet technology, such as Facebook and Google. Every aspect of innovation goes forward because people sacrifice their lives for it. However, companies like Facebook, Google and Instagram have a bigger impact on our societies.

They’re powerful because they’re easy to use and bring some sort of value to billions of people. But on the other hand, they can easily use their power for manipulating the crowd. 

Well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the awful side effects that technology has on the existing society.

1The pothole theory


We’re all addicted to the internet, and there’s no other way to put this. It seems like the addiction got to a degree where some countries are considering new laws to issue tickets to people who don’t pay attention to where they’re going. The WiFi signal is indeed a pothole.

2Emotions and social media


The value of emotions in society is on the rise thanks to social media. It’s super easy to praise someone or to simply write the most awful things that you can think of. The real problem is that we value virtual likes that basically don’t have a real meaning. You don’t even need a second to like someone’s post on social media, and there’s no limit either.

3The future of facial recognition


The real meaning of the facial recognition technology was a positive innovation that we all embraced. We all want to be notified if someone publishes a picture of us without our knowledge, especially if we don’t look good on that picture. But the involvement of facial recognition is not going to stop there, and the illustration above perfectly describes the future of it.

4The emotional future


This is how things worked back in the days. Your parents take care of you, and you later take care of your parents. But raising a child is no longer a priority for most people, and the respect we had for the elderly is slowly but surely fading away.
