Name That Decade

Posted in Random tagged , , at 4:46 pm by silivalilife

There have been whole lot of different suggestions to name the past decade.
I suggest mine: decade of deteriorating quality. In everything, starting of food and goods, ending with human qualities, health, relationship, and prices too, you name it.

The food industry was already  with hormones, chemistry, radiation and various gases, now is “improved” with genetic modification and is becoming increasingly dangerous. All new labels designed to control the quality do not work as we are increasingly creative in bypassing rules.

Food quality is connected to the quality of our health a lot. One consequence is the much talked obesity nowadays.  

Some time ago the person who would produce a good was called Master. He would take a pride and was responsible for the quality of his production. He was continuing the job of his father and was happy that his production was labeled by his country name. His guarantee was that his creation would last  to serve your grandchildren. Since sometime the variety of labeling decreased a lot and I am not sure anyone takes pride of those labels anymore. Even notion that good  product has a high price does not always work.

There is a long list of other aspects of our life that fit into this description, which does not make me feel any good.

I think the decade before this one could be called the Decade of Human Greed. All of us involved.

I will also suggest a name for the next decade as well. Decade of Paying the Price.
