There is an overload of opinions on social media . It’s great being opinionated. I am an opinionated person, the problem is no one is listening. It is a conundrum, for how can I ask you to listen to me, when I am not listening to you? Sometimes I can’t stand Facebook or Twitter. I honestly, can’t take other people’s opinions. Sometimes I just want my own thoughts. Nothing personal, but no one’s going to change my views on anything. Nor am I going to change anyone’s view on anything. So sometimes I just get very annoyed.
So I try to just be a meme person. But that annoys me too. I mean really, how many cat pictures can you take? Or worse yet, when people post a sentence with a colored background. we will be more interested in you, if you make it brightly-coloured.
At least I have not started a political fight on WordPress. Nor have I hurt anyone’s feelings. Nor has anyone hurt my feelings.
You have to be so careful on social media. Will that offend someone? Will that hurt someone’s feelings? Will someone see this as bullying? It gets a little ridiculous, don’t you think?
When did we stop being human beings and become a category? When did being political become being a democrat or a republican. Heaven forbid your socialist. And what exactly is a foodie? We even put a category in our type of diet. Vegan. Vegetarian. Piscatarian. Carnivore. No gluten Everything is so compartmentalized .. I’m afraid to say which compartment I’m in , because it will piss someone off. Well, I don’t want to be in a compartment any more! Just because I’m for women’s lib does not make me a feminist nor doesn’t make me not a feminist. I just like equality. I am not a carnivore because I eat chicken, I just think they’re dirty vile little animals. Too many opinions, and too many compartments.
I think with all this connection in cyberspace, with their eyes wide open, the world is blind. Love. Hope. Empathy. Truth. All are becoming a blur and lost. The great thing about history, is that it repeats. I think perhaps we were smarter thousands and thousands of years ago. The microchip and cyber technology has given us the illusion that were smarter.
I hope somehow I get to see where we will be in 3,000 years. I wonder if we will go back in time or if we will move forward? I can’t help but feel like the things that matter most have been lost. I want them back. Will you come with me?
