“I am terribly concerned in our culture about what Neil Postman calls a ‘Low Information-Action Ratio,’ caused by our society’s plethora of contextless information. The result of our bombardment with too much data is paralysis – we are not able to, or become not willing to, act on what we hear and see. In fact, television has trained us NOT to act on what we learn.”
