.Letter: ‘ In other words, as we get smarter, we also get dumber …’

Left to your own devices …

As we all know now, there is a diametrically opposite coordinate direction between the rise of the Information Age (Google, et al) and the State of Political Discourse in our country and elsewhere. In other words, as we get smarter, we also get dumber.

Here is my solution for today’s rotting world: once a week, get off the network. Shut off your phone, your radio, your TV, and all your other devices. Try it for a few hours. Then try it for a full day. Then try it for as long as you can stand to be smart.

What you will find is that there is a diametrically opposed coordinate direction between your personal intelligence and the amount of time you spend on your devices. In other words, the less time you spend with your devices, the smarter you and your children will become. Heck, you might even decide to have your kids vaccinated.
