Thinking banished

"We live in a world of frightful givens. It is a given that you will behave like this, it is a given that you will care about that. No one thinks about the givens. Isn't it amazing? In the information society, nobody thinks. We expected to banish paper but we actually banished thought" - Quote from Jurassic Park - The book(which I may add is a FANTASTIC read)

This is why I like sociology - the major task of sociology is to question commonsense assumptions - that is, the given.

I agree. Though it's usually about the important issues. We will sit down and watch Big Brother and think about who to vote off though.
