I tend to agree with annestacey.
The internet is basically the only place where one can get unfiltered, unedited information from just about anywhere in the world. Sure, there is alot
of BS out there, and one must use discretion. However, for the first time in history, humanity has a wellspring of instant information that is not
filtered or controlled by the governments or powers that rule them.
The internet is a very dangerous thing to those out there who are trying to keep a doped out populace complacent, content, and calm through a heavy
dose of mind numbing tv programing, amusements, entertainment, ect. The internet is a world of its own that the powers that be cannot seem to get a
monopoly on. Thats why they come out with crap like this. To make people think that feeding a curious, hungry mind or interacting in new ways with
people from around the world is unhealthy and abnormal.
Perhaps some of that extra time spent on the internet is time that was formerly spend veging out in front of a tv, going to movie theaters, or
shopping. There are many things you can do online now. Even socializing.
Nah, this sounds like a good thing to me. The only problem i see is spending too much time online means less exercise which is bad for your health.
Beyond that, I see no problem.
