More Computers, Less People 

I felt like I was in the land of automation this morning at the Miami International Airport. First, we were greeted with more check-in computer screens than ever before, then we got directions from a full motion information display and finally a Minion chased us around  until we agreed to enter the store the character was pitching. 

Was someone trying to tell us something?

This will lead to further dysfunctional interactions such as indiscriminate shootings, violence, road rage etc. We are social animals and sacrificing interpersonal human connection with simulations deprives us of necessary emotional fulfillment.
