Does anyone else think that the internet is making people stupid?
It seems like we always here about the television being labeled the idiot box. It’s the latest trend for smug douches to throw out their tv and righteously proclaim “I don’t watch tv, I only use the internet!”
Well, as most people should know, the internet is full of misinformation and outright lies. Whats worse is because it’s global, anyone with any stupid crackpot theory can find someone else in the world who agrees with them, giving them validation. This is why we have so many dumbasses running around believing the world will end in 2012 and chemtrails and all that B.S.
Also, have you taken a look at youtube recently? The top subscribed channel is some afterbirth talking in a high pitched voice about god knows what ridiculous crap, I couldn’t watch more than 10 seconds of it. How the hell is that any better than television.
Basically, I think that the internet is destroying social interaction, making people stupid, and is far more harmfull to society than television. Thoughts?
