Jerry Mander - Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television.nfo Written by a former advertising executive. From Goodreads: "A total departure from previous writing about television, this book is the first ever to advocate that the medium is not reformable. Its problems are inherent in the technology itself and are so dangerous--to personal health and sanity, to the environment, and to democratic processes--that TV ought to be eliminated forever. "Weaving personal experiences through meticulous research, the author ranges widely over aspects of television that have rarely been examined and never before joined together, allowing an entirely new, frightening image to emerge. The idea that all technologies are 'neutral', benign instruments that can be used well or badly, is thrown open to profound doubt. Speaking of TV reform is, in the words of the author, 'as absurd as speaking of the reform of a technology such as guns.'" Format: PDF Length: 376 pages Published: 1977 by William Morrow & Co. ISBN: 0688082742

Most Americans, whether on the political left, center or right, will argue that technology is neutral, that any technology is merely a benign instrument, a tool, and depending upon the hands into which it falls, it may be used one way or another. There is nothing that prevents a technology from being used well or badly; nothing intrinsic in the technology itself or the circumstances of its emergence which can predetermine its use, its control or its effects upon individual human lives or the social and political forms around us.

I read this book ages ago and still to this day recall much of what was in it. Must have been over 10 if not 15 years ago possibly. Stuff will stick with you.
