Utilizing social media to explain the evils of social media, another reminder that the monster in question has us all by the nards, no matter how much damage it unleashes on the world, no matter how hard we try to shut it out of our lives…
I stopped all involvement in social media over a year ago, except for here on Medium. I’m often reminded that it is really not that different from any of the rest of it, yet I am not strong enough to sever this last tie.
There simply isn’t any way to have a voice in today’s world without having it on social media. I fucking hate it. Can you imagine the power we’d wield if we ALL just turned it off at once?
Can you imagine the power we would strip away from those who assume we’re already bought and paid for?
Now, THAT would get their attention. Nothing makes a point like radio silence, except maybe social media silence.
Sigh. If only.
