Dead Men Can't Argue Back
Made a bit of a mistake in thinking my blog was due later so, sorry for not providing variety for people to respond to! On that note, I have no fun graphics, but I do have a question. Feel free to respond or not! It's a bit late when my senses kicked in and I checked the syllabus. When finding or realizing flaws and applause moments in the Postman book last Tuesday, it struck me that although Postman makes great points on how our society behaves today he is also clouded by his own opinion. Do you think that we are so amazed by his accurate predictions to not want to critique his work (because it can be difficult)? What problems do you find with his bias or even the age of the book? Does it make a difference that the book is so old? Should it make a difference? We'll get to it on Tuesday, but I wanted so feedback not on if Postman is wrong or right but if we considered the circumstances around the time this book was released.
