"We live in an anaesthetized society"

- Tony Snow

About this Quote

In this quote, Tony Snow is suggesting that our society has actually become numb or desensitized to the world around us. Using the word "anaesthetized" indicates that we are no longer able to feel or experience things fully, as if we have actually been put under anesthesia. This could be due to a variety of factors, such as the continuous barrage of info and media, the hectic nature of our lives, or the numbing effects of technology. Snow is highlighting the requirement for us to wake up and really engage with the world, instead of just going through the movements in a state of numbness.
