Ken Jones on Knowing the Times

Few would deny the fact that we live in strange, interesting, and challenging times. In the span of just 20 years, life in the United States of America has undergone radical and dramatic changes. As technology has rendered new tools and techniques, life as we have known it will never be the same again. From ATM machines to the internet, to video games and cable television artifacts that have launched us into a “brave new world” surround us.

gordon clark
