Why Facebook is bringing on Armageddon: An essay by Moon Child Step Mom
Unwarranted rant against FaceBook… if it’s your thing, this isn’t for you.
I see it coming, so help me Jebus, it’s coming at us like an out of control locomotive… and it slipped in right under our noses. Armageddon… the “End Times”… there have been many books written and movies made about it… the downfall of man to computers.
Think about “The Matrix”! The idea that the coming of The One will herald the destruction of the Matrix (FaceBook)and the freedom of humanity from their oppression by the Machines (computers). The Terminator series also comes to mind in an eerily prophetic sort of way… humanity falling in the face of their own creations, the machines, but think of this people, instead of humanoid robots wielding machine guns ending the lives of all things “human” it’s a more subtle form of artificial intelligence… computers… leaking into our brains with their probing electronic fingers each and every day, and we welcome the invasion!
What’s the weather outside you ask..? Do you go outside and look..? Nope. Check the computer. How many friends do you see or call in a day..? One or two..? You saw and talked to 200 on FaceBook didn’t you..? Are your days measured in how many smiles you got from your friends and family in real life or those you emotoconed online..? And how many “real life” relationships have ended due to someone’s obsession with their “online” loves or friendships? It’s a mess… no, it’s a plague… and its name is FaceBook. And everybody is infected.
Didn’t you first hear about it offhandedly here and there… from the teenagers than the twenty something’s then the office workers then the “networking” crowd started using it as a way to “stay connected” (Matrix again!) now everybody and their grandmother can see what so and so had for breakfast this morning… and what REALLY pisses me off (thanks to Mother Russia and her f-ing FaceBook obsession) what the KIDS wore for Halloween this year!!! If I wanted all 300 strangers “connected” to that moron to look at those babies I’d place an add in the New York Times. It’s sick.
And it’s everywhere.
It may seem a petty issue to champion in today’s day and age (and ironically being bitched about in a different chat room on the f-ing computer! Duly noted…) but it scares the living crap out of me. How more and more people are sharing all of their private thoughts and information with the entire world without a second thought. Big brother is definitely watching people… be careful what you put out there, that’s all I’m saying.
And leave the ex’s and old high school flings where they belong…k?
Memories safely locked in your past. Go hug someone in “real life”.
