The Listless Life

In 1797 William Wilberforce wrote:

Yet thus life rolls away with too many of us in a course of shapeless idleness. Its recreations constitute its visit site chief business…amusements are multiplied, and combined, and varied, to fill up the void of a listless and languid life; and by the judicious use of these different resources, there is often a kind of sober settled plan of domestic dissipation, in which with all imaginable decency year after year wears away in unprofitable vacancy. Even old age often finds us pacing in the same round of amusements which our early youth had tracked out.

Have things changed much for us since the 1700’s? The amusements are certainly more sophisticated and easier to access, but the idols are the same.
