A documentary about torture

In culture on January 27, 2015 at 21:16

They just broadcasted the documentary Webjunkie on the Danish Television channel DR2.

What I saw was a documentary about torture. For no reason young teenagers were locked up for playing online games or seeking material on the Internet.

Parents who have been raised without modern technology don’t understand how the modern globalized world work and they become afraid of their children distancing from them. But done are the days where children could settle with being educated in the culture and history of the country alone. They have to learn global awareness and several languages. They need to establish global social networks on the computer. A friend playing world of Warcraft today could be your business partner tomorrow.

The parents fail to understand this and as result the lock their children up in a rehab center where the teenagers will grow up being the new lost generation.

As some people might know the lost generation used about the high school graduates Mao send out to rural communities where they were supposed be a good example for the local people. They were away for so long that they missed out going to the university and getting a career. They were overtaken by younger generations and ended up with a life without having reached their full potential.

The same goes for these young teenagers in the documentary. They lose time where they could build up social networks over the entire world. They may settle with working at a factory for 20 hours per day building cell phones until they commit suicide as so many of the Chinese workers in this industry do.

It is just waste of life and hard to watch.
