I'm not going to make a long to-do about this, and it won't even really qualify as a rant. Why? Because I am entirely calm as I write this (albeit
eager to get to dinner).
The point I want to make here is we so often type hundreds of things each week (assuming you browse ATS at work or home as a hobby, and don't just
sporadically visit the web), and yet we forget that a lot of these people or services we address on the web are real people, and not just programs
that we can vent our frustrations at.
Because it is impossible to email a roundhouse kick (unless you're Chuck Norris), and completely dehumanizing when it comes to emotions, the internet
has undermined, to a very literal and absolute point, the value of human relationships.
Opinions have become cheap, thoughts have become factory-model, and all communication is now electronic...to the point that we have forgotten what it
is to look someone in the face and say, "**** you, you dumb little ****, you're just a ****. Why don't you cry to mommy and break your computer?
You should drop dead." These have become nothing but words to us, sent over the cyber space connection that draws lines from person to person in the
What kind of demoralized creatures have we become? Where has respect gone in this technological age? Don't forget: just because there's a monitor
instead of a face, doesn't mean there isn't a soul on the other end!
I won't say anymore here...just watch this video. Have a wonderful day/night, everyone.
Watch this, please.
