I have to agree.  I look at it from the point of view
that Science and Technology are always led by people
that believe in future possibilities yet history takes
time to move forward and those "old" ways will need
time to adjust to the future possibilities.  Much like
the Amish, they still exist today. 
I do wonder, will technology evolve so quickly that
the gap between the "old" ways and the future, become
too wide? 

Just curious, something on my mind.
