At risk

“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined
as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomesa form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience,and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk;culture-death is a clear possibility.”

 Neil Postman, social critic
