Good article by you in today’s Sunday Times on social media, which I may or may not fully agree with. its not all bad, it has its good points when used well. Drugs serve a purpose, good and bad.
I hate to see an eight year old walking along with her head buried in a machine. Teachers say four year olds come to school not knowing how to talk to others. My brother said young people today don’t know how to write a letter, they don’t even know how to talk said a friend.
A recent book said children should not go to school until they are six so they learn how to socialise. A friend cheered when I said that.
Could you do an article on post-truth and fake news? See Post Truth, the New War on Truth and how to Fight Back by Matthew D’Ancona reviewed in the same paper along with another book on the same topic. These may not fully cover the subject. Hear the podcast from BBC Radio 4 of last week in, I think, Start the Week on that subject, which is very good.
A Chinese woman was good on the topic, D’Ancona also spoke.
God knows there is much to criticise in the modern age. A friend, a lecturer, said half the subjects in university are just there to make money for the university. A fake world?
Keep up the good work. see Voltaire on free speech, also under attack today.
