But I have noticed an alarming trend in the rise of "Social Networking" that is indeed disturbing. I recently was at a restaurant and watched as a group of people sat at a booth, and instead of actually using verbal communication to interact with each other, pulled out text-messaging cell phones, and communicated between each other with these devices! They did not even bother to look at each other, but instead were buried in these devices....I was astounded, and began to think about the implications of this loss of human communication and interaction that has allowed us to be social creatures for millions of years!
What the hell has happened to the idea of being social creatures through the art of verbal communication, and non verbal communication through direct physical interaction?
Today, I want to present a great article that comes courtesy of a fellow truth seeker, Desert Peace, at www.desertpeace.wordpress.com, entitled: "Social Networking" Has Turned Us Into An Anti-Social Species", right here for my own readers to view in its entirety. I have some comments of my own to follow:
NTS Notes: I have long suspected that something nefarious was happening with the rise of so called "Social Networks", and Desert Peace has hit some of the key issues right on the head.
It is indeed worrisome that people are using these networks for communication and rapidly losing the importance of verbal and true direct social communication. Is this part of the master plan of these criminals by destroying us as true social beings. and instead make us slaves to this type of social engineering? It does make you wonder.....
More to come
