Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the electronic media is just another media after copper-wire telephone and letters, and doesn't yet make people idiots.

In a way it does...being at the museum and texting instead of enjoying art is kind of idiotic, just for example...Point is not that texting is wrong but what is wrong is that especially young people are totally dependent and "hypnotized" to the point that they are absent from real word.

After the one-way communication of TV, public discourse now fragments into several isolated communities of like-minded people who build develop their own biased worldviews.

Yeah...like here on ET, haha...where very often different opinions are castigated by marking them "conservative" and there for not worthy...
Problems you see are all real...
