Smack on the money with your observation Alan. And I would add that the Internet has brought out our tendency to seek those who look like us, sound like us, and believe as we do. Just as the early immigrants to this country (after we stole it from the prior inhabitants) looked for communities of those from the same country. One last thing - be careful not to become a victim of affirmation bias by seeing only those people who are fixated on their phones. Don't forget to look at those around them, not on their phones, as well, just to maintain perspective.
