If someone from the 1950's suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about the lives we live?

I try to explain how technology has been developed to the point where everyone can be connected to everyone in real time, regardless of where you are on earth, with the idea of bringing us all together. But, it has only served to compartmentalize humanity and tables full of people all sit together for hours on end with their heads down and thumbs tapping away all the while believing they're having fun.
When the wicked are confounded, and consigned to flames of woe, call me.

The American president is a nazi sympathizer and the first lady is in a sex tape video.

I don't know, I think the fact that he used to star in his own TV program pretending to fire people who didn't work for him might be more difficult to swallow.

Gay marriage.

Probably not as big a shock as you would think.

I remember back in the 1980's my grandmother telling a story about somebody who's wife left him "because he went to a gay wedding and came back with the clap."

My grand-dad was in Korea during the war.

It would absolutely floor him that Samsung and Hyundai Motors are industry leaders.
It would amaze him that South Korea is home to the best telecom infrastructure in the world.

He would shrug that the cease-fire with NK hasn't changed much.
