A really interesting buzz Mark Herbert I saw some research recently by Ipsos Mori which shows that only 46% of those born after 1982 trust the man or woman in the street to tell the truth. There is always a price to pay for freedom the Institute for Fiscal Studies produced figures suggesting that younger cohorts are on course to be poorer than their parents, except those who can expect to inherit wealth. More specifically, the IFS found that people born after the 1960s were less likely to be homeowners, were earning no more and had less private pension wealth than the generations that had gone before.

Independence is a great concept, few are ready for the responsibilty and hard work it requires - certainly no danger of dependency & entitlement disappearing during Generation Snowflake.

...Continued from Without opening a "can of worms" we have lost so much more of "ourselves", other abilities besides "...our ability to analyse, reason and make decisions"; But it is just a matter of work to get back in touch with those aspects. Getting back to the point; Yes it is the "Tragedy of Intellectual Laziness", (as you state so eloquently), but mankind has been finding ways to become lazy for thousands of years, hence my comment; (typical human nature?)

Alrighty then! Food for thought indeed Renée 🐝 Cormier I understand exactly what you're talking about. Without getting lost in the quagmire of semantics there has been much debate regarding AI which comes down to "definition", I am of the school of thought, (as is Phil Friedman), that we are still so far away from actual AI because it cannot encompass ALL of what makes us intelligent beings. Yes we are building "smarter" machines with far more advanced algorithms and computing capabilities but I don't agree that it is "AI". Having said that your point of us developing weaknesses or even losing capabilities due to our dependence on advanced technology is a very valid point which I agree with; But they are not lost permanently. We have lost touch with so much of our capabilities, aspects of ourselves over many years, thousands, due to advancements to make our lives "easier". I could elaborate greatly on this but here's a discussion that I think illustrates the point; https://www.bebee.com/producer/@randall-burns/expanding-the-paradigm-of-our-perceptions-senses-and-philosophy (Hopefully it's not too "airy fairy and spiritual", :-)) to be cont...

We points. We should never sacrifice our integrity for growth. We all will makes mistakes, we are human. Trying to deny and hide this is when we hurt ourselves and others we care about. I reminds me of a lesson about lying when I was a kid. My mom told me that I would never get caught in a lie if I told the truth and faced whatever was coming. It was also better than having to remember what I "said the last time" and having my consequence get larger. Honesty and integrity are by far the most important assets we have. They will help grow every seed we throw out.
