I hate electronic devices.

About: lara's rant on facebook

I hate electronic devices. I am forced to plug away in front of this brain sucking device so that I can promote myself and my interests, lest I slip into obscurity (my new favorite word, thanks to Jessica Pearl Down). But, we will pay for all of this mind numbing bullshit someday. we already are.
Please, for the love of God, get your hands dirty with the sweet earth. Play some music, dance. I grieve for my own humanity and the connection that is being lost every second I am in front of this blasted instrument of illusion.
Go fuck yourself.

well the messages that fly, person to person, on this grand societal network are no different in kind than the thoughts that fly around inside the private boundary of your being. If you realized that, would you have that same abhorrence of the mechanism of your thinking that you have expressed towards the mechanism of thinking in our society at large?
