There is nothing worse than a culture that fosters superficial thought.
And it’s no secret that far too many Americans can’t think their way out of a wet paper bag.
Thinking today is dominated by television culture.
Lacking any patience for, or training in, the history of Western thought, a lot of people today form opinions of great importance on the basis of a vague sentiment, slogan, or sound bite.
Unable to form sound judgments and reach valid conclusions, they are easily swayed by emotion and other superficial appearances.
Sound reason and logic never get a chance.
