The emergence of new culture will be the result of developing technocratic societies where the primary, if not the only, goal of human labor and thought is efficiency, that technical calculation is in all respects superior to human judgment ". People will look for technical solutions to human problems.
Postman tried to foresight the consequences of uncontrolled growing technologies, especially in IT. New technologies in IT - new media sources - new ways of perception the information - new cultural patterns. "Information appears indiscriminately, directed at no one in particular, in enormous volume and at high speeds, and disconnected from theory, meaning, or purpose." The "information glut" leads to the breakdown of a coherent cultural narrative, he argues, for without a meaningful context, information is not only useless, but potentially dangerous.
