#2. Computers that move so fast the brain of the young adult is incapable of concentration;

#5. A proliferation in the number of so-called SMART PHONES which are DUMBING DOWN the population, doing the THINKING FOR THEM;
#6. Overly distracted by TRIVIAL NONSENSE with little or no KNOWLEDGE of HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY or COMMON SENSE ETIQUETTE;
