Can you develop your argument so that people do realise it before it is too late please.

I'd assume they mean that smart phones are the scourge of society and some people are hooked on them. Which is reasonably accurate.

Information (and free access to it) is the enemy of tyranny. I would have thought that smart phones would be a force for good, as long as people are able to recognise fake news and propaganda.

Oblivion is the state of not being aware of what is going on around you so whether someone on a train in contact with the outside world on their smart phone is in more of a state of Oblivion than someone looking out of the train window or asleep is debatable. By calling it a slippery slope you are implying it is not a good thing which is also debatable. Personally I don't have a smart phone but quite enjoy the state of near Oblivion I get on a train from listening to podcasts and looking idly out of the window. I don't feel better or worse than someone who spends the whole journey on their smartphone. They could be doing anything on it. Who am I to judge? Noone has remotely persuaded me that smartphones are evil.

We need a few Victor Meldrew/Hamid Barr rants to spark conversation up. It's temporarily quiet, I hope, and things should liven... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
