    I’d change viewpoints even more: Kids aren’t smarter or gadget-y, but they are more adjusted to the modern world because they have grown up with it and it’s "normal’ to them. I’m an engineer, working with computers and electronics my whole career, and I still have a frisson of amazement sometimes when I pick up my cellphone that has more capability than the entire country’s worth of computers back when I was in school. To kids, it’s just normal.

    “Most people in the US are fat simply because they eat too much” – No, that’s the point, it’s not just that simple. Calories are not just interchangeable in the human body, or rather, calorie counts do not account for the different amounts of effort that it takes to use them, or the different downstream effects in the body. Your car needs gasoline, and the same number of “calories” in vegetable oil won’t run your car; the supposedly same number of calories of protein and carbohydrates will “burn” differently in your body and produce different results.

    Alan Dean Foster, “Quozl”, a core theme that the aliens watch violent entertainment and play violent simulation games to DRAIN all of their violent impulses, to “get it out of the system” through non-real violence, precisely to PREVENT their tendency towards violence.

    Of course – they were redacted.

    I would say it the other way around. It’s not that they have no idea of what they’re doing; on the contrary, by deliberately running it into the ground they can then point to it and say, “See? It doesn’t work!”

    >>Actually, an armed society is polite because you’re armed, too.

    Robert A. Heinlein, Beyond This Horizon. On the other hand, consider Alexi Panshin, Star Well, describing the bully who picks a fight and challenges a duel. Even if everyone carries a weapon, some people will choose to practice and use it, and others will treat it as an emergency last-resort; and those who choose to practice will likely be the same people who are impolite bullies now.

    “Where does he put Hobbes?” Hobbes is obviously a relative of Harvey. Pookas can take care of themselves.
