gift from the sea

Just read ...

and am pondering these excerpts: 

The world is rumbling and erupting in ever widening circles around us....
If we stop to think about it, are not the real casualties of modern life just these centers I have been discussing:  the here, the now, the individual and his relationships. The present is passed over in the race for the future, the here is neglected in favor of the there, and the individual is dwarfed by the enormity of the mass.


I just find it surprising

 that it was written in 1955

 (waaay before internet, Facebook, Google Circles, etc.)

because it seems much more timely
