With books being banned and words being changed so they do not to offend, it has got me thinking about this cartoon I ran across a couple of years ago by Stuart McMillen.
Amusing Ourselves to Death is Stuart McMillen’s interpretation of media theorist Niel Postman’s book Amusing Ourselves to Death (1985), subtitled “Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business”. McMillen works in behaviour change with the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. He has an interest in environmental sustainability and is the Brisbane organizer of the international Green Drinks networking movement (www.greendrinks.org). In his free time McMillen draws and posts cartoons on his website www.recombinantrecords.net.
It is interesting to think about.
