This should be called "How Star Wars slowed down the world", not changed it.How many hours are spent to create technology entertainment that's main purpose is to waist your time?How many hours are spent watching such movies?How could society have benefit if we used the same money that is used to produce movies and the costs to buy movies to find a cure for cancer?You can spend money to watch a movie / show / play a video game or do something where you actively engaged in productive endeavor, where you / we / society can look back and say, "this is what we accomplished.Because you know, damn well, that none of us will be telling our great grand children what great shows we watched when we were kids, no one.
Umm, I will, I think getting immersed in a fantasy world, or other artificial universe is important for relaxation.Without some form of escapism in our lives, we would all be a lot, LOT more sluggish in progression as a race..Please, before you voice your own opinion as fact, re-think what you're going to say, otherwise, as seen here, you'll make yourself out to be highly un-intelligent!

hmmm...but you took the time to comment on this article? Wow
that comment sound a little communist, are you a communist id just ask you because you really sound like the fucking communists of my country, people need some relax, if not people tend to shoot other people in malls or some other places ok MORON
boring troll should find his own time to cure cancer instead of trolling forums... note- pleasure enjoyment not allowed, entertainment not allowed, trolling perfectly acceptable...
Joe, what your basically saying we should focus on the easy stuff and not the hard. If you wish to be the generation known for its entertainment that is all well and good, but I rather be known as the generation that finally cured cancer.
And you think you're being productive by bitching about something that came out about 40 years ago over the internet? Wow, I have to take a moment to bow before your all-knowing logic.
I'm kind of ashamed to have to point it to the above "all work and no play" Jacks above but...We ARE the generation that cured several kinds of cancer. Cancer is not a single disease, but several.I'll leave to you, as an exercise, to look up how much manpower and money were poured into cancer reasearch AND into Star Wars stuff in the last 40 years, and reach a conclusion about if it is REALLY Star Wars that is keeping us from curing the forms of cancer that we still haven't cured so far.While you are about it, see how much we spent in REAL wars, Trying to save this ou that lovely animal that is completely useless to the world, bribing politicians to do somebody's bidding... I think you woulde be surprised ate thar sheer volume of things that REALLT slow us down as a race, and how much more than Star Wars.
