The TV Numbs Our Sense Of Morality

reasonIn the News (from CNN): Rapid-fire TV news bulletins or getting updates via social-networking tools such as Twitter could numb our sense of morality and make us indifferent to human suffering, scientists say. “If things are happening too fast, you may not ever fully experience emotions about other people’s psychological states and that would have implications for your morality,” said researcher Mary Helen Immordino-Yang. … the study raises questions about the emotional cost, particularly for young people, of heavy reliance on a torrent of news snippets delivered via TV and online feeds such as Twitter.

My Comment: This is exactly where the problems of our youth come from. This is the impact of TV programs that are intended to appeal to purely superficial thinking, rather than the more conscious level.
