Refried vilified

Posted on: August 10, 2019

Every generation finds something negative to say about the one that comes after it. If you want to know why, you might listen to this Pessimist Archive podcast on millennials. (Spoiler/Bait: It has something to do with land ownership.)

Another theme that repeats is the popularity of a medium that is enabled by the dominant technology the time.

Just over a hundred years ago, books were vilified for an instance of gun violence. Now video games have been blamed for two of the latest mass shootings in the USA.

The instances of violence are not the pattern. The blame game is.

It is easy to give in to base instincts and uncritical thinking. It is much harder to reflect and change for the better. If we do not take the difficult route, we only have ourselves to blame.
