Today i just had this feeling of nausea or inertia over the internet with its social medias wich arent really social (duh) and its constant regurgitating state.
On the one hand we have the places like Facebook and i cant stand another second of people posting the trivial minutia of their lives today.
Places like Tumblr wich are really just people spitting out pretty pictures.
Both places…most if not all places on the web mainly made for people with a micro celebrity complex and no interest whatsoever in anyone else (yup, nobody reads your posts…..just like you couldnt care crap about theirs) and an attention span of three seconds.
The entitled generation spewing all over eachother.
Should you actually enter a discussion on anything that could possably be of any interest to anyone older than ten or air an opinion it is all mini trolling, oneupmanship and people with little or no actual existence trying to get the “satisfaction” of “winning” the discussion.
I just dont have the energy to post the same arguments over and over to people who think they are intellectuals who has “gotten it”.
Neither do i have the energy to do so for all the fanatics and fundamentalists out there.
I regard myself as a tolerant guy who can in every way stand people disagreeing with me but in the long run, Atheists trying to “save” people with a rigor i have only seen in the Jehovas Witnesses before, racists who hide behind some make belif “heritage”. Having them constantly rain down their gospels over me is just tiering.
Once upon a time i too belived that the web was a place full of information and the free word.
A place where people could discuss the way grown ups do, with nothing to prove, everything to find and without some obligation to reach a consensus (usually the opinion of the loudest and least educated person).
In reality the internet is to a large part a toy.Nothing more.
Most information is there, but drowned under tons of crap, not that it matters, very few people have any interest anyway.
They are either shallow or pseudo intellectuals passing their pet theories as knowledge.
…..and again, the ones that arent usually have to be DUG up from underneath all the nothingness.
