Today’s question comes via something Lanna Lee posted on Facebook, which apparently originated on Reddit:
If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?
I suspect it would be the social changes, not the technological ones, that would stun a 1950s person the most. To hear that it’s likely that “your wife” would not be busy in the kitchen making dinner with the high-tech “microwave” oven would probably more shocking than the existence of the microwave oven. Maybe it would be a married interracial gay couple and their adopted child making dinner in “their kitchen”!
What do you think?
