    • The TENSION “The children now love luxury. They have bad manners; contempt for authority; they allow disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children now are tyrants...” - Socrates “The free access which many young people have to [content] has poisoned the mind and corrupted the morals of many a promising youth; and prevented others from improving their minds in useful knowledge. Parents take care to feed their children with wholesome diet; and yet how unconcerned about the provision for the mind, whether they are furnished with salutary food, or with trash, chaff, or poison?” - Rev. Enos Hitchcock, 1790
