It is a cheat, in that there are more than two options, of course, but play with me, here. In general, I think that we are in an anti-intellectual swing of human interest and interaction. Now, we can say stuff like "yay science!", and we can link to science-like articles on social media, but it seems to me, in general, that intellectual musings and interactions are not really in style right now. So. Do you think it is because our attention is stretched too thinly and we have no more capacity (ala Huxley Brave New World Revisited), or do you think it is a genuine cultural trend, you know, kind of like how Devo broke the anti-intellectual swing of the seventies (in reverse... what broke Devo... so many options, there... when was that... oh my... a whole other discussion is possible for what broke the swing that broke the anti-intellectual seventies)? Is it the nature of social media platforms? I guess that is a third option.
