Do we trust computers more than real people?

I heard somebody say something that's really reflective that day on television. She adamantly said that she trusted computers much more than she trusted real people. At first I said what? But then I began to think about the idea that maybe the nature of our technological culture when we are always on our computers and we have hundreds of Facebook friends that this is not such a farfetched idea.

On the surface, to say we trust computers more than people say we do not trust people. You do not need a doctorate to calculate that people are not reliable in communicating with others. Unfortunately, some will do something to cheat or lie. And when they are calm and there does not seem to be much happening, people are still more anxious. It is certainly how our political community is developing.

This type of social anxiety caused by our modern world has taken more than a few dishonest turns at the last minute. We seem to have a lot on our plates in our modern world. Harmful suspicion and pessimism have taken over the world. Or is it harmful? Perhaps it is realistic enough, given the nature of our world. We can not seem to trust anyone, not even among our closest friends and relatives.

Trusted people are usually considered untrue or golden. And people who are in general will do anything to reduce our normal qualities in bad relationships and difficulties. So we should not trust people as much as we do and always be very careful when it comes to publishing more information about our lives.

But here's the problem I see in being suspicious of all. We will cut ourselves away from any significant communication with anyone. This is because we can not possibly contact another person if we always want to wonder if the man will destroy us. But this does not mean we must be completely unborn either.

I think we can live as optimistic pessimistic. Such a person is naturally optimistic but is also careful about dealing with others. That person also holds an intuition to assess whether he should trust a person or not. It is one way to prevent it from hurting and possibly eliminating people who are harmless.

But what if we do not hear our intuition? What if we've been so addicted to the media that we've forgotten to continue to develop who we are truly and be authentic as much as this is possible? Sometimes we can not even recognize us anymore because we are so unconscious.

Well, maybe if we find this way, the woman's statement above may be correct. Perhaps we can only trust computers and not people because we no longer know who we really are and what we mean. I think this is the biggest danger in our modern world, moving into the world of technology to increase, we no longer know who we are.
