Disconnecting from the constant noise of popular existence is quite an undertaking these days. When we unplug, the first reaction is an unnerving sort of anxiety. Online is safe now, the status quo.
When you disconnect, you deal with the world, as real and mortal as it is. People die in the real world. People lose homes, and children and food, and rights. But, our history was never virtual, and we got pretty good at it.
We are constantly watching TV now. But, the platform has changed. It’s no longer called TV. And granted, we are in control of this new TV. We pick the channels.
However, most do not realize what this new freedom means. And why their children are glued to phones, like the last generation was to television.
More is not better. Better is better. Better information, better entertainment, better knowledge and better systems. As the saying goes, "Garbage in, garbage out."
Often, when left to our own devices, we make the wrong choices. Evolution is a son of a bitch. And so is ignorance.
