Next panel was like 1950 and someone complaining that tv was ruining literacy. Next panel was 1920 and someone complaining about radio. Then someone complaining about the printing press.
Yeah, that's my line of thinking every time I hear somebody say "society" is doomed, or whatever. People having been saying the next generation was the end of everything for centuries, if not since the creation of speech.
