Lack of Direction, responsibility and meaning, indulging in materialistic Bullshit and virtue signalling for a hit of dopamine, until next time you are in need of it. The West is dying...

I remember when facebook came out while I was in high school and I thought the same thing. It’s just more opportunity for people to flaunt about how much they drink, and how many sluts they can fuck, and how much money they can spend. This was in 2006. It’s now almost 15 years later and we are still pretending that the social currency of likes and retweets isn’t giving us all cancer. Social media is doing this. Yet we can’t break free because the internet is where information and ideas live. It’s where we absorb art and entertainment. Social media is effectively becoming a drug. It feels good to use in the moment but it slowly takes years and years and years off of our lives. We need to squash it. Squash it all. But it will never happen...

The internet issue is the greatest testament to a generation that thought they knew better. I don't mean millennials by the way I mean gen-Xers. Most of them didn't check or care what their kids were doing. Their kids danced circles around them all the while they thought they knew what they were doing. Teachers were no better. Took them 5 years to get around to notice kids were using proxies to get around their blocks. When they finally did they tried to watch our screens. We made proxies with translucent screens. They thought we were reading text books while we were on YouTube and Facebook. It only took a week for students to figure out the surveillance technology was low quality and really small. Translucent pages could be placed over it easy and they would be none the wiser. Some teachers caught students and straight up didn't care. I thought it was hilarious when teachers tried to keyword block internet explorer. We used Netscape, Opera, Comet, and Mozilla Firefox. If adults recognized their arrogance and ignorance they could have stopped the rise of the independent child. They should have explored the internet thoroghly before handing the internet to children. They thought child safe sites and parental locks would stop us. The moral of the story is don't underestimate something you don't understand. So many parents got their AOL accounts stolen by their own kids because they left their passwords under their mousepads or on the back of the tower. I assure you that children were exploring and controlling the internet before parents even learn about Facebook or Google.
