The two sides of Media

I think it is a gift what the media achieves in the intelligence of the new generations. The world is becoming accessible and also easier to discover. It gives education more opportunities to evolve in their system.

Time has been important in the advancement of media. Hundreds of years ago people would not have imagined where we are today with our technology and media. Yet today it is normal to have a robotic device in your pocket that connects you to the whole world.

Yet there is also a downside to this. The developments in media and technology have made humans much more individualistic. Each is focused on himself and on his own successes. This also leads to people using the media to pretend to be different than they are. This is a major drawback that the new era has brought with it.
