"Disadvantages of television: It promotes passivity. Television allows its audiences to live vicariously through the situations and lives of fictional characters. It's far easier for a television viewer to experience the thrill of a television character's success than it is to go out and create success on their own terms. This is particularly detrimental to children and teenagers who need to develop a strong sense of self and a purpose in life. Television encourages passivity." - Yahoo Voices (March 2008)
"In a society where most people were "visually literate" or "media literate" but lack solid, well-developed, constantly-used reading skills, the literate or "text-oriented" minority would be in control--perhaps not always overtly, but most assuredly where it counts. In that dystopian vision, we would revert to a medieval state where the knowledgeable few rule the ignorant masses. This time the ignorant masses would not think themselves ignorant, since they would be flooded with "information" through the vastly richer channels of sight and sound. " Express Lib (1992)
