Does it seem to anyone else there is a to divide and separate us? Social media has done such a good job of connecting us, that we don’t bother to connect in person. After all it is inconvenient to meet on person. We have so much to do.
We have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, What’s App, FaceTime, Snapchat, Tick Tok, Zoom, and God knows what app just showed up. Our society is so connected by distance, that we don’t know how to interact on personal level. Have you noticed how rude, grumpy, and intolerant we are in the “real world?”
It would seem, that, given our lack of face-to-face connection, that self-isolation during the COVID19 Pandemic would be no big deal. You know, “Separate Together.” Somehow, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Many people experienced loneliness, hopelessness, and depression; some even took their own lives.
Are we more comfortable with a self-imposed, voluntary withdrawal from society, as opposed to, a forced government imposed, isolation? Could there still be a small piece of humanity hidden deep inside, that actually longs for real, personal, face to face, interpersonal contact?
We shall see. A second lockdown is rearing its ugly head. Our government masters, concerned we our enjoying our return to freedom, feel the need to clamp down, and regain control. Seeing us out and about interacting with each other is troublesome. When we are out in the world we interact with people outside our web world; people with other thoughts, ideas, and concerns. We might even discover we are more alike than the media and government oligarchy want us to believe.
This is a dangerous thing. The ruling elite and their Big Tech partners can’t just deplatform us in public, yet. Take advantage of your newfound liberty, realize we are not each other’s enemy. Our true enemy is the one seeking to divide us, so they can have total control over us. Let us unite against our common enemy, and not each other.
