Raluca Chiorescu Posted about 3 years ago Urban society has it's gifts. Being around people all the time - What have we lost? We have lost communication! We are around people all the time, but we are too busy and stressed to find the time to get to know those people and to really communicate with them (and "hi, how are u? fine, thanks" does not count as communication) We have lost the touch with nature and environment. That's why so few of us care about things like recycling, pollution, being environmental friendly, etc... because we are too far from nature to actually see the effects of our actions on it. We have lost the sense of solidarity. There are too many people in the urban society to care for each and every single one of them, so we ended up caring only for ourselves.
