So many peo­ple are liv­ing in iso­la­tion in this day and age

The Oban Times - - YOUR VIEWS -

A per­son has to re­alise that life is not all about money. To that end, if tourism does bring in money to a sec­tion of the is­lands, it also has a dam­ag­ing ef­fect.

How­ever, we do not re­ally com­mu­ni­cate with vis­i­tors as such be­cause we do not have a com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor and, as we don’t know each other’s back­ground, we strug­gle to con­verse.

We have never had so much by way of com­mu­ni­ca­tion tools but nor have we ever had so many liv­ing in iso­la­tion, with no daily hu­man con­tact. Aong­has Eoghainn Mhoir.
