25 Days Of Blogging Day 7: Social Media: The New Age Drug
The 25 Days of Blogging. Instead of cheesy lame Christmas movies you get superior knowledge and information form a drunk, Holiday hating Grinch.
(Day 6 and Part 1 of Social Media: The New Age Drug)
Facebook. Twitter. YouTube. Marijuana. Alcohol. Heroine. What do they have in common? Free, easy dopamine access and effects. They give their users worthless, unearned highs. Why put forth the effort and hard work for a natural high when you can net yourself an alternate that requires no work? Stick a needle to your arm. Press down on the syringe. Let the drug flow through your veins. Instant high. Instant dopamine. Repeat. Stick your phone’s camera up to your face. Press down on the record button. Talk endlessly about a subject matter. Get likes. Get comments. Instant high. Instant dopamine. Repeat.
One method is legal. The other is illegal. But, they’re still can be destructive.
Let’s do a few strange comparisons. Social media is the modern day drug house where hopeless, lifeless junkies gather; searching for their next high to escape their horrible reality. Instead of crack whores sucking on a crack pipe, you have physically beautiful, yet mentality vain and narcissistic young women sucking on phallic-like items for the attention of and validation from thirsty guys. Socially awkward depressed white nerds are your drug dealers who supply your memes they created in their drug houses (meme pages). They get their follows hooked on their content and the followers can’t stop coming back for more.
(The difference is that real drug dealers have a social life, courage, and can get women – unlike meme page owners).
Such with illicit drugs, shares, likes, views, and comments make social media junkies feel better about himself or herself. As soon as they hear a “ding!”go off or a bird tweet, you can bet that they will quickly reach for their device and see what content they posed got a like or a comment. It’s worse if they run a popular page on Facebook or Instagram. They can’t stop raving about the thousands they like generated a day. Nor will they won’t shut up about how many mindless zombie followers they obtained a month.
Fucking digital druggie e-hippies.
These digital and drug junkies love using these drugs as a means to deal and escape their problems. The lowly worker gets himself doped up before work to deal with their shitty boss. The straight edge lowly social media whore recklessly rants about their boss on their page. Men get drunk at the local bar to cope with their horrible relationship with their wives. Little boys go online to talk shit about their girlfriends. It makes them feel good. The lowly worker doesn’t have the courage to tell their boss to fuck off, walk off the job, and become their own boss. These boys and men don’t have the courage to cheat or their wives and girlfriends.
You can’t tell these addicts any different. You try to say that their addiction is an issue and watch them go off the rails. “I can stop anytime I want to! Just let me take this one last hit!” “I can get off Facebook at any time! Just let me post one more sad selfie of myself for attention!” They’re hooked! They feel the heat of withdraw. They can’t stop going back.
Ever notice how both internet and drug junkies love talking down to others who aren’t addicted to the bullshit? To my straight edge readers: ever had a drinker or a weedhead shame you for not drinking or smoking? Had it happened to a straight-edge associate of mines a few years back ago at an anime convention after party. Some drunken fat party weeaboo chick tried to shame him because he doesn’t drink and smoke. She shoved a drink to his face, pressuring him to drink. He knocked the drink away from his face and walked away: chest out, face up, back straight. The fat weeaboo chick went on a triad and left.
You tell somebody who’s addicted to their phone that you’re not on social media because it’s a waste of time and watch them go beserek. “How can you not be on social media? You must have no friends! Nobody must like you! You’re so lame” No bitch. You’re the lame one with no friends. That’s why you’re on the fake world a.k.a social media. You would kill yourself if Facebook or Instagram shut down for good.
I’ll say this: Despite the condescending tone of this post (I’m highly aware of it) I’m not straight edge – nor am I totally against social media usage. I enjoy drinking alcohol and smoking weed. Hell, I even do shrooms from time-to-time. I’m on social media as well. Just like I love connecting with old friends and family on social media and interacting with fellow nerds on my weeaboo page, I love drink a bottle of wine with a blunt on a side at the park after work.
But, everything in moderation.
Until next time
