Update; [25/2], back in a week or three. One discussion and the difficult to assess, bigger political picture? Aangirfan, gone, (now on Gab), captured the best over almost twenty years. With oodles of enlightenment.
As millennials, we are the first generation of the digital age. We are also the last generation who had to call using a landline, send party invites via snail mail, and actually ring our friends’ doorbells to tell them to come outside and play ball. Some may say this is confusing for us, but I think it’s an incredible advantage. We can go back and forth between the real and digital worlds like it’s nothing. So how does this tie back to the Covid-19 pandemic? Well, we have the strong ability to dig and research on the internet, and then bring what we find back to apply it to real-world problems. In my opinion, this capability has been crucial over the last two years, particularly since our mainstream media has epically failed us. We easily shift from working in an office to virtual home telecommuting without missing a beat. We handle technology very well; it’s become our sixth sense.
From 9% of households with a TV in the wealthiest country in 1950, we now have 6.6 billion smart phones for 7.9 billion people on earth, a number that’s hard to believe. Nearly everyone, then, is walking around with a miraculous television, one that can transport them anywhere, at will. Not only that, they can use this device to broadcast themselves, so everyone has a public voice, sort of, if only to 100 followers on Twitter or FaceBook.
Commenting at political websites, people can also fancy themselves a difference maker or dissident. Some maintain blogs or publish articles, though usually with fewer readers than spectators at a high school basketball game. Here, I’m also describing myself. Canceled as an author, I’m writing for maybe 600 people, whom I deeply appreciate, don’t get me wrong, but it’s still a tiny coterie, akin to, say, The Badminton Association For Left Handed Albinos in Glasgow, Montana.
Just as the internet gives us virtual experiences, it also grants us an illusion of power, as compared to its real, brutal exercise. Online, our rulers also have a much greater voice, so their narratives always drown ours. That’s how the Covid scam was sustained for two years, against all logics.
