About Television

"If television can bend minds and capture imagination while in its present rather primitive stage of development, what of tomorrow? It seems to me necessary that we begin to use today's telecommunications marvels to draw all of humanity together in a free exchange of ideas, art and knowledge ... or its great mind-bending potential will be used by a powerful few to own and manipulate the rest of us."
