There is an inclination in society to become more and more sterol. Even our architecture reflects that these days. Stark white empty spaces etc. I'm noticing more and more hand sanitizer being used as an everyday occurrence, people keep it on their desks at work etc. People don't hug much or embrace. I wonder if we'd be better off if we did? Perhaps we are weakening our immune systems by not being exposed to as many germs because of our sterol, not embracing culture? Germs can be good, right? Is the fist bump a symptom of our increasingly germaphobic culture?
