I remember comfortable trains  with seats allowing  enough place for legs and bags and few co traveller , going even to less frequented places with affordable for all tickets and easy readable price&time tables. I remember that sending a parcel was less expensive than the inside of the parcel , one had not to wait in long lines and that the parcel mostly truly arrived. I remember a pre “call centre in faraway country’s” real help. I remember people truly involved in their workplace, not only surviving in disposable “jobs”. I remember less ” global speculation investment & logistic “improvement” , but a greater safety of the true functions.

This is not “modernity”, this is the result of neoliberal deregulation.
