The current asymmetric war is likely to become a fixture of society for decades to come. (Most?) people today aren’t more intelligent than during the past few hundred years but are now routinely subjected to constant sensory overload from digital technology.

Is this a reason why so many incidents of people flipping out occur? My bias tends toward yes, but truthfully I don’t know.
