Critical observations on ICT Revolution in UK

Even in the UK, the motherland of Mr. Eric Arthur Blair, there are also widespread concerns on the social as well as psychological impacts of the Revolution in Information and Communication Technology (RICT), especially on kids and teenagers. The concerns cut across ethnicities, religions, cultures, languages, ideologies and political systems. Mass media in the UK, as we can see, publishes views on both the positive and negative sides of the ICT Revolution which affects, like it or not, the full spectrum of the society and not just ICT-centerd libertarians. Moreover, among other democratic countries, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark have enacted laws to put in place ISP-based filters blocking sites with child pornography. For socially responsible people, doing something not that effective is still better than doing nothing at all in the face of a threat to society.

Secure safe environment for children & teens
