Default Peers are chained

Chained is the appropriate term. Not just your peers - see the pattern from the 20YOs through the 60YOs. Seems we reinstituted slavery about the late 80's when we put electronic chains on folks called cell phones. Slavery = 24 x 7 availability and the inability to own any free time. See loads of folks doing nothing but accumulating vacation days these days with never a chance to use them...
