The internet unlocked something dark in humanity.




Is "unlocked" the right word?  I think exposed is more accurate.  And that's a good thing isn't it?  Take these comments for example:

"Using the examples of church sex scandals, politicians’ expenses and phone-hacking, he added: ‘In the last few  years every single pillar of society has collapsed one after the other.

‘I can’t remember as a boy growing up that so many  pillars were found to be so rotten."

The Internet didn't "unlock" these misdeeds - it exposed them - informing the world and allowing something to be done about them.

In addition, these pillars were rotten decades ago and only fell in the last few years thanks to the Internet.  He can't remember the pillars being so rotten because there was no Internet to expose them when he was a boy.

I don't know if a book has been written on the subject but, someone should write one.

Spot-on as usual.

I'm told that Freud thought-up the Electra Complex - all girls want to get-it-on with their fathers - because so many Vienna girls told him their fathers were molesting them. So he decided it must be a persistent fantasy of girls - that it could be the simple truth was so foreign to his worldview that he could not grasp it.

And what needs done? Another pillar of your happiness is that you must live your own life, keep your own head above the water and make your own way; and a considerable part of that is realizing that yes, some other people are rotten - who can you trust, who can't you trust? And even though some of 'em make barrels of money at it, would you do it too? And what behaviour, judged by massive evidence, is "normal" despite laws to the contrary?

I think it was H.L. Mencken said, "We know of no spectacle more ridiculous than the American Public in one of their periodic fits of morality" - Prohibition sits right up there as a prime example, along with Mayor Bloomberg's nonsensical thou-shalt-nots. Ride with the waves and remember: "Ni Illigitimus Carborundum", folks.

And the mainstream media continue to pretend that they are indespensable.

The internet has removed the mask from these charlatans.

Gotta love paywalls, right? "If you want to read our content, you've got to PAY." "Okay - ciao, baby!"

Thanks for deleting that advertising, Marc.

Don't put limits on what you eat as much as you do how much you are eating. It is important that you realise that if you do miss one of your exercise sessions it is not the end of the world. Most of us love it; going to Mac - Donald or Burger King from time to time.

It is almost like starting from scratch without reformatting the Apple - TV.
There are Blu-ray home theater systems which have the
capability to stream Netflix, Pandora, You - Tube,
or other media applications, Apple TV and Roku XD is technology that basically gives
you the option to not have to pay for a Blu-ray player. The Apple TELLY is far from a mass-marketplace machine, but its sales
numbers display that even in the reasonably small industry,
Apple dominates the levels of competition.

I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt. Romantic happy New Year Messages For Girlfriend 2030
