Is Deaf Culture In Danger From Technological Progress?
Deaf actor Russell Harvard (Tribes, There Will Be Blood
): "It might sound funny, but I'm afraid that in the future, the deaf community culture would be extinct because technology is taking over and there would be no more deaf people. In the future, genetic engineering, cochlear implants, the language will be forgotten - I was really terrified of that."
