It only takes one look at your newsfeed to see that we’ve got a long way to go as a society. Despite all of the progress we’ve made, we still struggle with many of the same problems that have plagued and divided humanity for centuries. And yet, despite all of our shortcomings, you have to admit, we’ve made it pretty easy to buy gum.
As the powerful continue to exert its control over the powerless, it’s easy to conclude that society is failing its most vulnerable members. Still, we must remember that we are lucky enough to live in a society where gum is more abundant than ever. No other generation has enjoyed the variety of flavors that we enjoy today, with such widespread availability. As important as it is to close the gap between the rich and the poor, it’s pretty undeniable that society has really threaded the needle when it comes to selling gum.
