I think you've been making some good points the last few days.
The point about the cell phone prompted me to do some digging around.
I was already looking to get rid of our smart phones and get pay as you go cells for emergency (kid with disability makes traveling with some sort of
phone important.) I want a land line.
The information I discovered reinforced that.
It also got me thinking how many people I know who don't have smart phones with gps. More than what ya think.
The most up to date stuff I watch is True Blood, Walking Dead, Once Upon A Time.
I have to say: watching Walking Dead is actually interesting because it gives you a really interesting idea of what people are like like when tshtf.
But other than that, I usually have no clue who or what is 'popular.'
(I'm a mom of 2 and I home school, that should say a lot right there.)
But I notice how often people have no clue what is going on in the world. OR they do, but there is an absolute apathy.
The point you made earlier on about people getting up and doing something,
I've had the unfortunate pleasure to be involved with some problems with a local school district. I cannot tell you how often people say I am SO
outraged and then go back to their regularly scheduled programming. The entire thing is so stinkin' corrupt and people care but not enough to do
I have been to the BOE and will go back, although I've little faith it'll do anything other than make them close their lips tighter.
Point being: people often don't care until those little problems do affect them on a daily basis. The cameras?
It would probably take the cameras actually being in their bedrooms before they'd care.
You know, this is so very Fahrenheit 451. Think those cameras on the outside aren't a big deal?
Ha, right now, maybe it's not.
But when certain people get a certain amount of power, it's amazing what those cameras can help them achieve.
And even then, people probably still wouldn't care.
