Adolfo Nicolás: "The globalization of superficiality"

"The world is becoming very superficial. We have more information than ever, but less ability to think, to reflect, to digest that information. So there is a globalization of superficiality. . . And even if the first news are totally biased or prejudicial, that's what sticks in the mind. And we don't have the ability to confirm, to study, to see whether this is true or whether this is balanced." - Adolfo Nicolás, the thirtieth and current Superior General of the Society of Jesus.
