22nd June 2017

Read it.

American childhood has taken an authoritarian turn. An array of trends in American society are conspiring to produce unprecedented levels of supervision and control over children’s lives. Tracing the effects of childrearing on broad social outcomes is an exercise in speculation. But if social scientists are correct to posit a connection between childrearing and long-term political outcomes, today’s restrictive childhood norms may portend a broader regression in our country’s democratic consensus.

    It began in 2007 with the introduction of the iPhone.
    The march to Big Brother became inevitable. Our Dear Leader is just the tip of that iceberg.
    When the Singularity happens, it will be complete.
    Happy Future.
