There must be a simple answer to this, but I really need help to dissect this and get my brain around it.
Personally, I just don't find the whole concept very appealing. Telling the world that I just spilled a milkshake on my new couch or just got home from profusely sweating at the gym just to count how many "likes" I get seems pretty pointless to me. I don't believe I would be
seriously envious of someone who had several hundred more "friends" than me. So what's the catch? Surely there are healthier ways for a person to be affirmed. I really hope all the Facebook lovers out there aren't too offended.
As with most things in today's upside down world, there are more questions than answers, but since there are so many basically good people who love America trapped in the quicksand called Facebook, we need to find those answers to rescue these poor souls. These people need to be free to rejoin the cultural and political war with the leftists whose decadence is the main ingredient of America's moral decay.
Imagine a Facebook addict having to be in a room with a group of real people. They would have to listen to real voices instead of reading updates or other attempts at simulating human contact. No "likes" to hold onto. Could they handle that? Swirling in a sea of reality. Voices and no text to read, real faces and no uploaded photos. Would it be too much? Maybe this might work. The addict would be allowed one tweet for each day they remained FB-free.
I'm sure at this point we can all agree that a fully funded government rehab program complete with administrative and clinical staff and elaborate facilities are definitely needed. After all, this is the way any problem should be dealt with, right? Maybe it could all be paid for with a "like" tax.
Think about it, America.
