It’s not terribly difficult to see how this situation came to be, though seeing how to get out of it has proved a bit trickier. Despite the rise of chat apps such as Slack, analyses by market researchers, such as the Radicati Group, have shown that people are sending and receiving more work emails than ever. And in addition to the sheer volume, the Adobe survey highlights another complicating factor: People increasingly expect their correspondents to answer emails within hours, if not minutes — putting pressure on everyone to constantly monitor their inboxes.
I agree, to a point. I think gov’t should create laws to protect one from another (not protect one from oneself). It is true that addictive substances reduce the power of the will and therefore it becomes less one’s choice and therefore the harm is more caused by the “pusher”. I’m all for laws that control drugs. I’d bet that there would be MUCH more drug addiction if drugs were made legal. That said, there are all degrees of harm and addiction. Heroin is much more addictive than caffeine and also much more harmful. If govt’s were to outlaw caffeine, perhaps they should also make table sugar illegal? Some people are addicted to Whoppers too. Should the gov’t close down Burger King? I think not. It is argued that caffeine and fast food can be consumed in moderation (I have a Whopper perhaps 3 times a year) without addiction or harm. Most people I know have a cup of coffee in the morning and are not suffering health issues as a result. Even those that I know that eat too much fast food and are overweight are not sick as a result. I know overweight people that lived into their 90’s. You get my point. Determine the real addictive and harmful products (cigarettes are probably high in the list by the way) and outlaw them. But, let people run their lives the way they see fit. Punish the pushers and help the addicts. Nuff said. Peace.
