The Dumbing Down of Society

The dumbing down of society involves reductionist thinking. Reducing words with emojis. Reducing the length of videos with TikTok . Reducing categories with labels. Reducing. books with sound bites. Reducing warnings with alerts. Reducing debates with insults. Reducing arguments with tweets. Reducing news with updates. Reducing humour with memes. Reducing work with process. Reducing spiritualism with ritual. Reducing leadership with populism. Reducing comprehensive strategies with empty promises. I could go on. Ultimately we are Reducing integrative thinking with discriminative thinking. Less is often not more. The treasure of authentic scarcity has been cheapened with fake abundance.
