Unlimited entertainment can decrease our opportunities to think

Aldous Huxley warned that we're in danger of losing our ability to entertain ourselves and to think for ourselves, due to the ready-made entertainment we have access to.

Nowadays we can reach for our smartphones and have instant access to unlimited mindless entertainment of all kinds (TikTok, YouTube, Netflix etc.). Add to this a 9-5 job filled with mechanical tasks that require minimal mental effort, and our opportunities of using our minds grow thinner.

CURATOR'S NOTE

We have unlimited entertainment at our fingertips. It's up to us if it's a good thing or a bad thing. It can either be a huge waste of time or a blessing that we can find exactly what we want to enjoy in our free time.
