Does he have a point? Comedian Louis C.K. went on Conan O’Brien this week and made some really good points about the dangers of cellphones. Besides the obvious harm in texting and driving he also discusses how they highlight a disconnect in humanity and promote bullying for kids:
I think these things are toxic, especially for kids…they don’t look at people when they talk to them and they don’t build empathy. You know, kids are mean, and it’s ’cause they’re trying it out. They look at a kid and they go, ‘you’re fat,’ and then they see the kid’s face scrunch up and they go, ‘oh, that doesn’t feel good to make a person do that.’ But they got to start with doing the mean thing. But when they write ‘you’re fat,’ then they just go, ‘mmm, that was fun, I like that.’
Do you see Louis’ point or do you think he has a darker attitude toward life than the actual reality?
