                Can you think of a generation of any age with our loneliness and our fears?  In the midst of a revolutionary communications technology there are more lonely people around now than at any other age:  we are filling our nursing homes and senior citizen apartments with millions of lonely people – we leave them with their TVs and their cats to fend for themselves; as if TVs and pets can fill the gaping void of the human heart.  More people commit suicide now than at any other age; more people are mentally […]
