There's a new buzzword making the rounds these days: "Rejuveniles" -- defined as adults who "refuse to grow up" -- is the subject of a new book by author Chris Noxon, who observes how American culture is progressively becoming stuck in a kind of Never-Never Land of arrested development. Noxon points out how our culture is becoming progressively toy-centric; even the designs of functional items like cars and computers have taken on a play-toy appearance. More adults partake in "play" related activities than ever before, and this shifting change in attitudes is redefining age and what it means to be an adult. Is this a predictable consequence of living in a first-world environment of relative luxury, where "play" is a healthy way to alleviate boredom? Is it due to an over-emphasis on materialism and entertainment? I haven't read the book yet, but I'm curious as to whether addresses how this kind of perspective has affected our nation as a whole.
