POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
Please, it isn't YouTube.
It's what Mark Twain called the damned human race.
All operations like YouTube do is reveal the mass of humanity for what it is.
The attitude implicit in a story like this is that of Electronic Luddites.
We are being constantly flooded with versions of this from excessive fears about what is on the Internet to uninformed claims of its vast wealth of information being worthless.
It's only a tool that just happens to open human strengths and weaknesses to previously unknown scrutiny, just as MRIs reveal the seat of feelings and thoughts.
