A species adapts to its surrounding environment to survive. If unable to adapt, that species or entity will become extinct. It’s as simple as that. Look at the wooly mammoth, dinosaurs, and the dodo bird: size was an important factor in their survival, but it took a meteor or the ice age to turn that size advantage into a disadvantage. In the business world, small hospitals, telephone land lines, record stores, camera film, newspapers, pay phones, and many financial institutions are becoming or have become extinct. Why? Because of the failure to adapt or to change to the demands of a modern society or some planned obsolesce that took only time to accomplish.
