What we may see as good in our culture today may just be proven to be otherwise in the future.
In our society where technology seems to be the answer, do you see the harm it may be doing to our kids? Does the thought of something beneficial being proven otherwise still exist in our society?
The Revelation of Discoveries
In 1944 when Swiss scientist Paul Muller invented a product that killed insects linked to deadly diseases, TIME magazine named his product one of the world’s greatest discoveries. Muller even won a Nobel Prize for it. The product was DTD, now banned in America for doing long term harm than short term good.
This subsequent revelation about the dangers of DTD is thanks to the tireless work of envirolist and writer Rachel Carson. Speaking of inventions, Steve Jobs is currently revered for his discoveries, but will the apparent suicidal of his inventions, mainly the smartphone eventually prove to be a foolish trade off for the loss of our children’s innocence.
