In his 1995 book Abandoned In The Wasteland, former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Newton Minow had this to say about television:
“In the 1930s and 1940s, television’s creators expressed their hope that the new medium would be the greatest instrument of enlightenment ever invented, a blessing to future generations. They were wrong. . . . No other major democratic nation in the world has so willingly turned its children over to mercenary strangers this way. No other democratic nation has so willingly converted its children into markets for commercial gain and ignored their moral, intellectual, and social development.”
With cellphones, email and the internet the dumbing down of humanity is getting even worse. Did you know Email destroys the mind faster than marijuana? Watch the video. I will have more to say about the internet as soon as I get done checking my email.
