... the pratice of daylight savings...

I've always hated it, and been opposed to it since grade school.
I'm curious: why?

Set aside, for the moment, that "24hr modern, powered by on-tap electricity, tv, the Internet, and legally addictive stimulants" world in which you say we live now. (Legally addictive stimulants; what means this, anyway - that they're allowed by law to be addictive?)

Why did you hate and oppose daylight saving time before now - before the internet and all of the rest? Did you really hate it, or is that merely hyperbole? Do you, in fact, actually remember a time when there was no internet, and do you understand the nature of institutional inertia?
