Do you feel the modern world discourages novelty

Do you feel that the modern world is designed against novelty and encourages monotony and routine? Do you feel we were designed to live that way?

I have mixing feeling, I mostly think there's almost no monotony, there're new trends, new threads and fashion for sth more frequent than in the past. I think they sometimes go too far with some things. How about monotony, it's more visible in political trends, always accepting the same party.

Yeah I think you are right actually. Maybe i'm just stuck in my ways. Early humans were explorers and I think we haven't lost that trait. We need it to be happy and survive.

You could take most areas and find something and ask about acceptance of novelty, from music, to film, to...football shirts! Music all sounds the same now, but it kinda did back in the 50's, or the 20's, or the 18th century. Novelties are fairly small in the grand scheme of things but larger over time. Many would say music in the 18th is far superior to today's, but many wouldn't listen to 18th century music to save their lives these days. But the difference between then and now is huge.
I mentioned football shirts specifically because as a football fan I see mention of fans complaining that their teams kit resembles another teams too much and they don't like the use of brand templates for different kits. Truth is they did this back in the 90's and 80's etc.
Things have always been a bit similar with a slowly evolving nature.

Now if you wanted to get onto the way we actually live our lives and the thoughts and beliefs we hold you're going to get a different answer from me, because I strongly believe we are being encouraged to be so similar than any novelty doesn't come from us, only those that are allowed it, a bit like the '1984' proles stuff. People of one mind, all nodding in unison. 🙄
The slowly boiling frog permits this.

I see all the oposite. Im always hearing that modern world requires have more than 1 specislity, and its good to specialize in different fields. Also, the modern world because globalization you can work in different countries easily. New things and discoveries appear every day.
