One of the greatest hurdles of this generation is it exists “in a culture of sound bites,” according to Spokane-based teacher and theologian Bruce Gore.
Gore appeared on the latest episode of “The Lucas Miles Show,” where he talked about the revisionist strain within the current cultural movement, often attempting to white wash the country’s past and sidestep the Christian principles present at its founding.
The theologian explained to host Lucas Miles it would “be tough” for someone akin to the 13th century philosopher Thomas Aquinas to gain traction in today’s cultural climate because “we are in a culture of sound bites; not sustained rational thought but impressions.”
“We’re sort of in an impressionistic culture, where it’s all little sound bites, all little tweets,” said Gore. “This isn’t sustained rational discourse; this is just little verbal potshots that people take, and it has an influence, certainly can affect the way people view the world, but it doesn’t necessarily connect to anything that is a reliable frame of reference.”
This sound-bite phenomenon is sending us careening toward “an intellectual collapse,” he later warned.
