“L.I.A.R.” “Low Information-Action Ratio”

“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.”

Written by Marva J. Dawn in 2000 in the book authored with Eugene Peterson, The Unnecessary Pastor: Rediscovering the Call.
