For those who don't watch sports, she's the darling 2 year child of Stephen Curry who just won the NBA(National Basketball Association) Finals. The
The only reason this is relevant is that this child will never live a normal life, at least as we know it. She's a superstar and will have to live
with this scrutiny from the press, unending, for the rest of her life.
She has no choice yet she doesn't know it. She does have a good family around her so that may make a difference but this could easily be the sickening
end to stories we know nowadays. Kardashians, anyone? I'm not referencing the Caitlyn Jenner side of the story. They were well on their ways before
What is privacy? How will this child deal with being known by the whole world before she even knows who she is?
I've really been scared by what's happening with new laws, all full of idiocy and basically meant to enslave us all, and this poor child will never
have a chance. Her whole life is recorded, from day one.
I don't even know what to say from this point. I grew up in a vastly, NAY, really F******* different world. Stephen King had that saying, "The world
has moved on" in the Dark Tower series.
My Gods, how it has moved on. I share more than I wish online. I try and still share more than should. I'm almost careful about what I share. And we
haven't even grasped the capabilities of the internet and technologies beyond that.
I have no idea what her life will be like. I can't even imagine what her life will be like. She will never know privacy. Her life will never be
unknown to anyone on this planet as long as she lives.
She never had a choice.
So where does that leave us?
I never purported to have any answers. I'm pretty good at asking questions though. She's the poster child for my thoughts but how many millions, nay,
billions of children will never have a chance? They will never have the choice, never be asked "Would you like this stupid video of you posted for all
the world to see?".
She's adorable and she never stood a chance. I might just be melancholic but I really fear for us as a species.
I've said nothing in this post. Think of the ramifications of what I could have said.
Really. Think long and hard. I'm not off my rocker. Well, not completely off my rocker.
Ok, I lost it in those last few sentences. Meh, it happens. The rest, I stand by. Too much time to edit it so I'll just hope my train of thought is
