Stare Into The Lights My Pretties

This totally reinforces what I’ve been learning about Surveillance Capitalism. And the incredible dumbing-down of the population.

Frozen people.

Staring at screens.

Unable to move.

Unable to think.

Unable to talk.

Unable to comprehend the real world.

Disconnected from reality.

Dead to the world.

The people who chose to disconnect from the modern world are going to be anachronisms.

But they’ll also be the only people who have retained any sense of self-identity and authority over their own lives and how each day is actually “spent”.

Giving up our very selves to faceless, callous, indifferent and utterly ruthless corporations who seek to enslave the human race to their techno-cornicopian profit-engineered race to Humans 2.0 is simply wrong.

The fact that we trusted these people to serve us fairly is beyond stupid. Their predators. We’re prey.

And now they own the world.

    I’m not concerned about giving up a “connected” life. I come from the age when there were no personal computers, no cell phones, no Internet. By the time these came about, I already had developed all kinds of personal skills and hobbies. They were my entire life back then, which is why I’ve always emphasized the “do” within people. But I admit to being online far too much, even though I’ve always rejected social media. But the problem isn’t just with social media. It’s the cursed glowing tether that we’ve allowed into our lives.

    That needs to change.

    It’s definitely worth a read and goes into much more depth than the film was able to, asking pointed and relevant questions about where the hell we find ourselves and how did all this come about?

    Any one of the issues raised or questions asked could be a jumping off point to a much deeper investigation into how all this shit helps to reinforce other dimensions of our predicament.

    A definite must-read, along with all the questions posed.

    I’m still digging through Surveillance Capitalism and it’s very, very scary how much information they’ve tapped into on every human being. The screen culture has captured everyone.
