well, maybe because they are all pretty much true.
Look at this mess. Look at what we're doing. The more we try to make our lives comfortable, the more complicated and stressful we make them. The closer we try to drag ourselves to others with technology, the farther apart we become. We relentlessly pursue accumulation for accumulation's sake, in pursuit of a paradise that never existed, while we heedlessly trash the only one we would have ever needed. We get most of our opinions and most of our entertainment from a stinking, lying box.
I don't mean we should romanticize the old days for their obvious shortcomings. Don't think we should go back to treating women like property and so on. But there are plenty of things that have not been improved by "progress." Quite the contrary.
