Alice McLerran

"... even if the content of programming were ideal, the medium itself is inherently dangerous to childhood. It is not the business of children to be sitting rapt, passively absorbing a virtual reality designed by others, drawn into images that move at a pace that cannot be altered and that allows no chance for reflection. A democratic society demands a certain capacity for critical thinking on the part of its citizens. We should be wary of a medium that by its very nature conditions children to be passive and unquestioning receivers of whatever is offered them."

Alice McLerran, in Juanita Havill, Book Love (2000)
