The ease of accessibility is truly an amazing and vital step for human beings but the short childhoods and desensitization of the human mind can seem problematic...but only if you compare the now to a romanticized and idealized past. I hated being forced to watch Wheel of Fortune because nothing else was on. I would cringe and sink into depressions when the only thing tuneable was repeat CareBears cartoons which always reared their syndicated, stuffing filled heads. When I had to write a paper or research something, off to the stinky old library where the info was dated, missing or flat out wrong. If I discovered a great Director like Kubrick, it was an epic task to get a hold of all his flicks to really get a sense of the artist. My upbringing in the shadows of the pre-internet glow was lacking in options and filled with energetic explosions devoid of researched intentions. Kids cannot claim this kind of ignorance in this day and age as every opportunity is there for them to research, inform and gain valuable data applicable to any given situation. This is a great deal of power that the newer generations can yield for the betterment of all of humanity and they are the miners of the vast walls of information. Now...if we can only get them to care as much about their profound potential as they do about selfies, snapchat and hollow trends.
