I continue [not surprisingly 😉 ] to have plenty of notions about the Ukrainian conflict and various domestic issues we face, and hope to return to publishing fairly regularly in the not-too-distant future. That said, MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning included an interview of Dr. Jonathan Haidt (pronounced, “Height”), author of The Righteous Mind, the book that I suspect that I have cited in these pages more than any other. Dr. Haidt discussed his recent article in The Atlantic, “Why the Past 10 Years of American Life Have Been Uniquely Stupid,” an essay describing how social media has affected our polity and our children and how it has been exploited (on the edges of both sides of the political spectrum). Apparently, Billionaire Jeff Bezos tweeted recently that he considered the essay well worth reading, albeit long. I wholeheartedly agree (on both counts; although as all are well aware, I’m in no position to criticize lengthy pieces 🙂 ].
A link to Dr. Haidt’s article is below.
