“Imperialism”…subordinating other ideas,  programs or entities…in an inferior fashion. 

 

INTRODUCTION: 

Believe it or not, we have a generation…really multiple generations…who do not know or understand Civilization’s history of development and the critical role of Print - in that development. 

 

Many of us hear the impact…weekly… of younger generations who are mentally locked into their smartphones, not developing their verbal skills…their athletic skills…their social skills….and in deep, dark, lonely frustration…going out and buying an AR-15……. 

 

Our society is learning to limit the daily time allowed on smartphones….Healthy human development needs multiple stimuli….for balanced, strong, resilient development.  

 

Now brace yourself. 

 

We not only have a long list of major suppliers who have walked away from substantive support of our Graphic Communication Schools of higher education, we now also have Graphic Communication Program Leaders who appear to (a) not understand the distinct values of Print - for our society’s and democracy’s development, but also (b) who are turning and over-emphasizing in their Digital Media Programs…through… 

  • New Curriculum in Digital Media. 

  • Digital Media Fairs for their students…. 

  • And potential employers (to the exclusion… of Print and Packaging….employers).   

SUMMARY: 

As you may question the accuracy of this information, your fact-finding of major Graphic Communication Programs should turn-up that these troubling Program changes… are very much in motion. 

 

However… our society has repeatedly rewarded a balanced communications education, and media. 

 

Exclude Print, and you’ve handicapped not only the message….but also the messenger…..perhaps for a generation…
