The modern day conveniences of the Internet are like snake oil, we are being conned and don’t even realize it.
By the time we do realize it, over half the bottle will be gone and we will exist as rats inside a network of world wide cages that human hands built, but by then it will be too late to do anything about it.
Cheaper and more affordable prices don’t translate to better products, it translates to inferior products being mass produced resulting in substandard quality.
Faster everything- means less effort and energy invested- which tranlates to generations of students, workers, and citizens who are less skilled and educated. A nation that has become FAT by convenient ease who can no longer function, spell, or do simple math without Google or Youtube.
Look around, has the quality of life improved since the American market began being flooded by cheaper chinese products? Take a close look at everything it has cost us and still is.
‘The entire time they thought they were building a world wide network that brought them together, they in fact were, but not for their purposes, it was for ours. ‘
What happens when the day of the future arrives when everything in the world is connected to the internet:
People, places, their possesions, their transportation, their monies, their homes, and the internet is hijacked by forces more intelligent or powerful than humans? Or by a few selected humans?
In that day, humanity, will cry.
The continents divided and drifted apart into seven for a reason, and now the internet intends on reuniting them as one. The idea of being connected to everyone else sounds good, until it actually happens.
‘The masses spent all day looking upward toward the stars and space being misled by propaganda that humanity was still looking for signs of extra-terrestial life, while those in power were inside our deliberating chambers. ‘
The snake oil has run it’s course.
