Note for Myself

The problem with doing any writing about culture is that it's too difficult to establish the existence of even the most obvious trends. So, I will simply point you to my writing from last week suggesting that the Internet generation is disconnected from the world, and link this article from the Chronicle of Higher Education in which a queer studies professor notes that his classes have been filled since 1991, "but gradually the political energy has died away almost completely." He notes that feminists have had the same problem. Note the weird watershed date of 1992 in his article and mine. I don't think that social interaction can be reduced to political activism. Just making a note.
