Singer-songwriter Yusuf Islam, who once went by the stage name Cat Stevens, wrote a realistic song about progress, saying that it’s ok for the world to embrace technology and change, but we need to be conscientious about what is going to happen to our children after all our apparent “forward-thinking”:

Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes/Or taking a ride on a cosmic train/Switch on summer from a slot machine/Yes, get what you want to if you want, ’cause you can get anything/I know we’ve come a long way/We’re changing day to day/so tell me, where do the children play?
