Why are people still stuck living in the past in a technologically ruled world?

It's almost 2021 and you still have companies using hard copies of everything, they don't use computers, they write everything on paper, they handle transactions with old methods. You have people who still don't use cell phones or the internet. You have people majoring in archaic majors at university that have literally 0 market, which were only useful 100 years ago. You have people not prepared for the future of society, and it's holding us back as a society. They are stuck climbing one mountain thinking they are on their way to success, but they are too ignorant to realize they are climbing the wrong mountain, and all the new age technology and jobs and skillsets are on a completely different mountain that only the younger generation understands. We are on the verge of having quantum computers, AI, genome sequencing, blockchain, and you have people who still don't even know how to use basic functions of the internet or know how to type.

    You really very naive and ignorant, I must say. It appears you don't live in the real world, darling.

    Legal papers of a company (eg: certificate of a corporation, agreements and all taxes) must be a hardcopy.   If some government officials come to the office to check the taxes, these legal papers might be requested (the hardcopy).    Digital files (pdf, words, Image, jpg) are not considered legal documents and not a valid proof. 

    And yes not everybody has interest on Tech.  I'm myself a Computer engineer and I have seen a lot of friends took business management and accounting majors.   why? they have no interest on computer and technology.   Not everbody is the same and I'm OK with that.   

    We still need Accountants and Marketing people for the economy.  Not everybody need to be tech savvy.
