Dangers of the Internet

The Internet is being used against us.

Here is how:

The Internet drowns out the facts with a flood of babble.

There is so much nonsense out there that the hard facts are sometimes hared to come by.

You've got to deal pretty deep past a lot of repetitive nonsense to find what you're really looking for.

The Internet Distracts the Issues

The Internet puts out so much half true-junk and nonsense that people starts ignoring the real facts.

Shape-shifting reptilians? UFO's as demons? Human sacrifice?

How much more interesting and morbidly intriguing are all these fairytales in comparison to hard facts?

The Internet Tracks Us

The Internet tracks us to the extent that the government now knows our very minds.

What the heck, the NSA has electronic files on all our Internet history.

People who type in their names in their new computers are stupid.

The government already knows your location the second you log on, why confirm your identity as well?

A fourth method is to launch a feint to lure the enemy into revealing himself.

You put out the cheese to attract the mice – create or encourage the creation of electronic front organizations, then see who joins them.

By now, your Internet History has created a perfect electronic file on yourself for the government to see at any time. Every political inclination, every perversion, every vice has been duly noted (though probably not perused by anyone…as yet).


But an additional factor of the Internet has been its effect on our very psyche.

The Internet is drawing us apart.

This living, humming creature, whose presence we feel 24 hours a day and whose data is available to us 24 hours a day at a whim is addicting us to it and alienating us from each other.

For many (both employed and unemployed), the Internet has become a second reality in which they spend the most of their day.

The symptoms of ‘Internet Withdrawal’ have (conveniently) never been studied.

But you don’t need a study for you to observe these symptoms both within yourself and within those around you.

Just challenge someone (perhaps yourself?) to pass a couple of days without it.

The first sniveling justification will probably be something along the lines of: “I HAVE to get on Internet because I’ve got business to transact there!”

No you don’t.

The only thing you have to transact is the continuation of your dependence and your addiction to the Internet.

The mechanism for creating addiction is a secret.

Officially “Internet addiction” does not exist.’

The topic of Internet addiction is a non-subject as far as the media is concerned.

But the mechanism exists.

It exists as surely as does the following:

The psychological isolation between one human and another.

All this besides the cell phone-staring phenomenon in which entire families and even dates spend time looking at their cell phone screens instead of talking to each other.

All this besides the symbiotic human-computer bio-interface many human beings have with their PC and continue with their I-Phones during 100% of waking hours.

All this besides the ungodly amount of hours the average human being spends each day staring at one sort of screen or another.

We are talking about the end of workable interaction between one human being and another.

And presently, ladies and gentlemen, human interaction is falling apart…and the Internet is causing it.

The very volume of information available on the Internet takes away from the value of information itself.

Perhaps the above is unavoidable given the amount of data (even US intelligence agencies are ‘choking’ on it).

But what about attention span?

What facts you seek to communicate is now much less important.

It used to be that if the Mass Media didn’t say it, it didn’t happen.

Now it’s the Internet.

If its not on the Internet, it does not exist.

(Ever try to find information on the Internet on how the lottery is a scam run by the Mafia?)

Please remember that when it comes to information, more and more information is managed through an international cyber entity called Google.

So you have something new, insightful and true to say?

Let me hear it (briefly).

I’ll then go home and look it up on the Internet.

If it is not there, then I will discard the data that your transmitted to me…completely.

The act of listening itself has gone out the blow hole.

Its gotten to the point where LISTENING itself has become an obsolete activity.

Why listen to all the tedious details of whatever somebody is trying to tell you if you can go home later…and look it up on the Internet?

It’s even become a fad to simply tell somebody: “Look it up by typing in ----- and ------.”

Why even bother to explain anything to that person, or discuss anything, the Internet will fully inform them later.

Last but not least, the Internet is infringing on the very physicality of our world, absorbing it, and bringing it under its control, much like a gigantic Borg matrix.

Books, magazines, videos discs, video games, toys and even stores themselves are all being sucked down its bottomless maw.

In very short time, all of the above are becoming obsolete.

Books, magazines and video (film) now exist in an ephemeral fashion within the Internet.

How soon before their physical existence ends?

Newspapers, books and magazines are already ending.

Movies and video games are close behind as everything becomes‘virtual’ and reachable through the Internet.

Of course, once inside the Internet, they all become beholden to the man behind the electronic controls.

Every document or film can be censored, cut, edited or even have its existence terminated all together.

And as everyone now knows and understands:

If its not on the Internet…

…it doesn’t exist.
