Just enough

Posted on: July 26, 2021

This tweet time-travelled over a century to report someone predicted that high-speed racing would affect the brain and cause insanity.

Back in the present, there a parallel: How time on social media, gaming, or screens will cause anti-social behaviour, violence, or some other evil.

The similarity of the two is that they are a) attempts at fear mongering, and b) based on no rigorous evidence. 

Our technologies evolve and change rapidly. Our incapacity to reimagine or change is almost constant. Thank goodness some of us change just enough to move forward.
