53. A different perspective

 

Times change, sure. Technology moves forward, sure. But modern isn't always better. That tired meme is getting old.

Your statement that companies either adapt or die is the very heart of the problem with the USPS today.

It is NOT a company. It should not be run like a corporation in the free-market. It is a Constitutionally mandated government entity that has survived changes in technology for almost 250 years. Get Congress out of the way with its union-busting pre-funding scam and allow it to do its job.

Not everyone has internet access. Not everyone pays bills online. Not everyone has a credit card. Not everyone owns a dumbing-down phone. Not everyone is serviced by UPS, DHL, or FedEx.

There are daily scenarios of technology failing, yet on the whole the USPS chugs right along doing their job. It is a felony to violate mail privacy and yet on Facebook, it is a daily occurrence, only because it is profitable.
