Have we developed/are we developing into a society that hates knowledge? Is television to blame?


For instance: Informercials. Is it difficult to explain science to kids? The people behind Informercials seem to think so. So difficult in fact, that they’d rather drill into the minds of little kids the idea that anything that they (with their 0-12 years of knowledge) can’t immediately explain must be the result of “magic” or unknown, unexplainable forces. It’s why people grow up to be so utterly stupid (sorry for my phrasing, but that’s just how I feel right now) and why the country is seriously lagging behind the rest of the world education-wise. What do you think?
