From what I’ve seen, most people are vaguely in agreement that modern technology causes problems, from lower attention spans and self-esteem to lack of inter-personal communication skills. The weird thing, though, is that nobody likes hearing it criticized, especially if they’re in their mid-20s or younger. We get defensive and derisive of anything bad said about phones, social media, TikTok, etc.
Part of that is because it’s repetitive. The same criticisms of modern technology and the internet are constantly repeated; normally, that would be seen as a pattern that should be listened to. In this case, it’s seen more as an annoyance, because it almost always comes from people older than us and the classic generational divide keeps us from taking it seriously.
