Middle School Teacher
"Number One: quality of information. Number Two: leisure to digest it. Number Three: the right to carry out actions based on what we learn from the interaction of the first two."
These are the three things that Faber says society needs if it is to recover. Society needs access to good books again, not just comics. Society also needs the time to actually read the books and think about what they read. Society currently spends all its time not only not reading, but seeking thrills that leave out all room for thought. And lastly, society needs the freedom to act on what it learned from reading and thinking about books. These are the three things needed to help society become healthy again.
