The concept that kids are inherently more dumb today than in years past is bigotry unless one has some evidence to show why one thinks they are less capable of comprehending what he calls simple math and spelling. Note that neither of those activities are unlikely to be "seen" in others "walking around". I fathom how one can make such a harsh judgement with no evidence to back it up.
Maybe he meant they are ignorant in ways that he prides himself in not being, but ignorance is something we are all afflicted with for our entire lives. We may know certain subjects well but the vast majority of knowledge can't be known by our finite minds. Very few people throughout history are credited with being the pinnacle expert in multiple vocations. I only wish I was able to focus on one skill to hone more than the others that I could be the top of that field. That simply isn't going to happen.
I do think today's children are more learned about the world than the previous generations because of the information they have access to. They are inherently better with digital age concepts that took us much longer to learn, especially if we didn't learn them until well into our adult years. I look forward to what the world will do with all this knowledge.
I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world
I like that post! That seems to me very insightful with a healthy portion of optimism, that I can completely share.
Yes despite economic crisis everywhere, I think we have a great future ahead of us! And more and more it turns out, that Apple plays a central role in brightening up the future for us.
Steve Jobs wanted to change the world?
Well he did it. And although he parted from us, he somehow continues to do so.
