Maybe, he is trying to say that women are setting the trend that manifests men's lagging behind amd incompetence .... We have found the correlation.  No need to find as men, you are slow.  

Take your time to figure out.

Whose fault?  OUR fault.

Greed?  Not necessarily.  It could be our incompetence.

Incompetence may be. But comparing to 30 or 40 years ago, the society as a whole has improved so much techinologically. As a result our life pace increased drastically. People even lose patience with love, passion, simply no time for that.

You know... I have a no-fault policy with my auto insurance...so when come to finding fault...I have a hard time doing it!   ...cause and effect is a tricky business...I think only Engineers and Pharmacists are licensed to make that kind of claims with results higher than 50% accuracy :).

Women could be a factor in moving the world faster...after that being said...it is like I haven't said anything at all...I could have said ...men could be the other factor...well I guess I covered all grounds...

Thank you for taking interest in my reply...I enjoy your clear thinking!

I believe women are becoming the leading forces in our societies...men are  certainly lagging behind for various reasons!

Inevitable Science vs Humanity

We are in the age of Science vs. Humanity.  Science is leading ... at the moment.

By incompetence, I mean we are man/woman competing with machines and technology.  As we clear one hurdle, more hurdles appear as science/technology advances.  In the end, we become more robotic than we are human; even cruel and callous.

As for life in 30 - 40 years ago, we certainly can't go back to those days.  No doubt, life is slower-paced then, we spend more time with "people" but it also breed more "loafers" and "incompetence" (in today's context of achievers).

In a science age, we stand a greater chance of achieving fairness for all or most because we compete and are rated on meritocracy.  

I guess at some point, what we need is to achieve a certain balance in life by changing our lifestyle, outlook and quality of life.  It is not going to be easy but it will be done.

As people aged...our sense of mortality reminds us that we don't live forever...the sense of urgency emerged as a result?..."time" becomes even more precious...we want to fill our lives with ten-fold special events...by cramping and stuffing more than what we can handle...fast food, fas love, fast trip, fast programs, etc... find their ways into our lives when there is a demand for them!

We can slow it down...as long as we recognize that we are the masters and not the other way around!...we might not be the absolute Masters...but a master who can always give fate a push and a kick...a lucky and determined fellow often makes his/her dreams come true!
