Richard Posner thinks comically little of human interaction:

"Sweden has very, very bad TV. They have only a few channels, poor reception, government channels. It�s only on a few hours at night, I think. It�s really incomplete. So I asked a friend of mine, a Swedish economist, what Swedes do. Do they read more? He said no. They don't read more. What they do, in contrast to America, is more family socializing. They draw with each other. Family socializing, family conversation takes place, usually on an extremely low plane. Americans probably are better informed than they would be if they had no television, because then they would just be talking to each other." -- Reason interview
