Lack of technology can be devastating. Every time a small town decides to isolate themselves by ignoring the benefits of innovation for the sake of tradition — poverty, drug use, crime, and violence often follows right after. There is just no other way to put it. The photograph you are seeing above is just a tiny example of what happens to a city when a community says no to technology (technique) overtime. Dinosaur communities make for great photo scenes but when it comes to wealth… they often come last if they finish.
Be sure to pay attention to the new technological trends of the new market and how these trends can be applicable in your town. It will be a big mistake to believe that one can live a good life without technology in the current state of affairs of the United States. Avoiding innovation in a highly technological world, even if these innovations come from systems overseas, is like trying to play golf against Phil Mickelson with wood clubs and no tees. Can you imagine the outcome of such endeavor? It wouldn’t be beautiful, thats for sure.
Be welcoming of new technologies provided by new people in your communities because these individuals have to think differently in order to earn a dollar to feed their families. When someone is hungry for food, they are often hungry for success as the former is the only way they can survive. What if they bring a new technology that you don’t know about? What if their techniques can help you to succeed and help feed your family?
Immigrants often bring technologies (techniques) that you can use to make your life better. This is how the United States became the superpower it is today. I am not saying that we should allow every immigrant come to this country illegally for the sake of innovation or anything along those lines. I believe in the real path to the American dream — A legal path to citizenship with reason which include allowing immigrants to actually come to this country. It is worth talking about the techniques that immigrants brought with them overtime as an example of historical innovation success done by foreign nationals.
Think about the food industry for example. The Polish taught us about pierogi and how they can be cooked to perfection. Italians brought with them not just their Italian cuisine but more importantly their techniques on how to make their product the way they are. The Germans brought with them a system to make German sausage with a degree of precision and discipline. Today, a large number of Americans eat pierogi, Italian food, and sausage. A number of communities sell these products and profit from. The consequence? The sale of these products generate American taxes dollars which are then used to sustain the various infrastructures of our communities all across the United States.
Foreign technologies, when used in moderation, are always welcome! See? There is much to learn from foreign national’s technological processes. In my view, we should continue learning from foreign processes in moderation. Be accepting of immigrants who want to contribute and hungry for success. Dinosaur community leaders, read this article and take notes! Your job is to help not damage your communities… You never know, foreign national technologies might be the ones that will hire and help your family to achieve and prosper in the future. Be kind to them.
