Absolutely not

I'm arguing that modern inventions, including the shoes, are not necessarily harmful as proponents of barefoot running, raw food eating, etc. might want people to believe. At the same time, I'm also acknowledging that the people that have taken commercialism to new heights are guilty of making modern inventions more than what it can or intended to do, even making up false inventions at times.

Happy medium, I am.
