Its one of the ways that we enforce uniformity and a shared purpose.
It ensures that everyone re-examines their life periodically.
Its also a symptom of the standardization of time. A standardization which is necessary to facilitate interactions between people.
Without standard recording of passing time commerce would fall apart and with it all the comforts of modern life would disappear.
No electricity, no internet, no computers, no oranges in winter, maybe even no agriculture.
So, lets all be happy that we’re being controlled. Its better than the alternative: anarchy.
Happy New Year All!
