    Default I'm terrified of the internet

    I am amazed at the absolute wonder of the internet and I'm scared to the bone of what it is where it will lead what it will bring us and more importantly what it will eliminate. Gods are dead because of the internet, not because of proof of its non existence but lack of proof "someone would've shown it to us by now", even aliens would have been captured on youtube or facebook live by now, no miracles, no mysteries no wonders of the world, nothing that we can't explain in a textbook exists. Think about the real genuine magic that people have believed in over the years, the greatest thinkers the greatest leaders, all believed in something that we have already disproven. the simple saying "I have always wondered" is gone because if you had really wondered something you wouldve googled it by now, I dont think we even realize how great this is yet as a collective i think we are still in awe of this communication. That millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions can view a single solitary message made by one person in an instant, and its crap its treated like absolute crap right now I just sent out a message that was viewed by tens of millions of people and its shit, nobody cares, that kind of power is completely incomparable to anything that has ever existed.

    I'm terrified of the internet

    Dude, I'm scared of your *name* -- where the fuck did you come up with 'willowtooth' -- ?? It sounds like some character's name in a B-movie version of some medieval fantasy shit...(!) (grin)

    The Internet itself is *inert* -- it's just a complex web of wires and microchips (electrical circuits). Whatever happens *on* it is purely from the activities of *people*, as usual. It's not watching you while you sleep from behind your bedroom closet door.

    Isn't science trumping superstition a *good* thing -- ?

    And you have a readership of *tens of millions* -- ? If so, that's rather good, even by Internet and politics yardsticks. I hope the message that got that many eyeballs included 'RevLeft.com' -- ! (grin)

    I see your point. What annoys me the most is employers. You go for a job interview and all it takes is 5 minutes of their time to see what you are "really like" by snooping on your twitter / facebook / instagram account. In my current job I talk quite a bit to a few of the guys in the HR department and i've been told that they almost always do this before the hire someone and that its very widespread practice. That's when this stuff hits home for me, I couldn't give a fuck about the NSA.

    oh yeah I learned that awhile ago, change your name never use your real name on social media or computers for that matter. Even if its just pictures of girls and drugs and stuff. Get yourself a grandma account, something with your name address how much you pay in property taxes lol something your grandma sends you a happy birthday message on real bowtie but they definitely check your social media at your job, especially high paying stuff, or anything where you work with clients.

    but that shouldn't really bother you after all, if it does just quit social media altogether, but how could you? Is it physically possibly for you to?

    Willow: Yeah you are right the internet is great. However at the same time technology, the excess of advanced technological toys and gadgets in the daily lives of people, is turning the great majority of people into weak, pacific, conformist people with less will power, less physical power than the societies of the 1970s and before that. There is even a theory that states that technology will destroy thinking abilities of humans, writing and thinking skills, reading skills and all that and some other aspects of technology will turn humans into apes, into monkeys again. Many scientists have claimed that humans today are more stupid than humans of the past, and that people will devolve back into the original ape monkey state

    Even the progressive writer Chris Hedges wrote about how technology is destroying reading and thinking abilities of people in this video:



    And even the singer Jim Morrison of The Doors claimed that the majority of US citizens were really zombies, slaves in the biography movie of The Doors. And he is right. You dont have to be a psychologist, a scientist of the human behavior to see with your own eyes, how the majority of people are literally zombies, philosophical zombies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophical_zombie and not only most people in the US are zombies, and not even humans, but they seem to me to feel good being zombies, being slaves, being pacific, being more pacifist than Jesus Christ and Ghandi. They get high with the Stockholme Syndrome. I've noticed that most economically oppressed low income people of USA do not have any problem with Donald Trump owning billions dollars, and John Travolta having such an expensive house, castle that it even has an airport. The natural feelings and natural passions of people in USA like envy, violence, revenge, anger are literally non-existant. They get high knowing that Donald Trump is rich and lives in a heaven, while they (70% of USA) lives a hell of labor, and domestic labor and physical painful work, all day and all night, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. They love the labor gulag, the lawn-mowing gulag, the physical activities gulag, the zero pleasures gulag that USA is for about 70% of its people.

    And I think that's why the left of USA, not even the social-democrat left, like The Green Party, Democratic Socialists of USA, Socialist Alternative and other social-democratic parties do not rise in popularity, in numbers, because the main fuel, the main ingredient, the main requirement to see the whole left rise in numbers (radical left + social-democrat left) is normal human beings, normal poor people without mental problems, without The Stockholm Disorder, without the disorder of Avoidant personality disorders, without the disorder of group-narcissism and family-narcissism, without social-phobia, without agora-phobia (fear of being outside, fear of being outdoors and fear of crowds), and without the disorder of philosophical zombie disorder. And with their normal human emotions and passions envy, anger, rage, etc. all working well.

    And then the other cause of why there is not a rise in the left of USA is because the great majority of leftist movements (social-democrats and radical leftists organizations of USA) need to work a lot more in their advertising skills, their communication social skills and the general social skills, in order to get the love and support of the poor income masses.

    But you are right about the internet, it is good. Because outside of the internet is very hard to find a person in the US, who will provide you with about 15 minutes or more of a rational sensible conversation about the general political situation of USA and its solution (which is a communist party rising to US gov. and installing a dictatorship of the proletariat)

    The only place in the USA where we can talk, strike a converstation about the need of a dictatorship of the proletariat about politics and many other topics such as science, the search for extraterrestrial life, etc. is the internet, it is Youtube, and other social networks websites. Outside of the internet in USA what we see is an egocentric narcissist, family-narcissist, group-narcissist (specially nurses, and higher-wage workers) caring about their own selves, their own families, and behaving like people who suffer from avoidant disorders.

    Outside of the internet what we see is a bunch of stuck-up subhumans with unfriendly angry faces rejecting escaping any kind of conversation about how painful life in the US is. Because they love their fantasy world, because they are super-lazy, super-stupid, and super-scaired, because if they escape their fantasy world and accept the real world, their reality about how shitty and painful their life is, then would have to think about an armed war against the US gov. and its ruling oligarchic classes. And that requires a lot of warrior spirit, bravery and physical strength and revolutionary communist theory knowledge, which is something that the zombies do not have at all, in their nacissistic heads

    And I think that another reason of why the great majority of americans have chosen to live in a fantasy world, is that the fantasy world does not require them any anger, any revolutionary warrior behaviour. Because it is easier to watch the latest Hollywood movies (very stupid movies) full of explosions and special effects after they come from their labor slavery at night, while eating fattening junk food, than to live in the real USA (which is not the USA of movies, the USA of Ben Affleck), but it is a USA of pain, more painful than Haiti and Nigeria. Because i bet that even in the poorest countries of the world the citizens of those poor nations are not ensalved by so many evil contracts (Direct TV, Dish Networl, ATT, Verizon, Electricity Corporations, Credit Car corporations etc) that are like having a knife stuck in their hearts, like being punished every 30 days, being forced to get out of their pockets, 300 for electricity, 1500 for the apartments, condos and houses, every month and every other evil blackmail evil oppressive conspiracies that american workers are subjected to, every 30 days (or for example giving the police departments, the local court offices 1000 dollars for a fine, of a dog or cat, urinating in a place where they are not supposed to do that.

    Things like that, represent the reality of USA, but if the 70% of USA like i said quits their fantasy-world and accepts the evil truth that USA is painful and its system must be destroyed, that would mean that americans would have to quit their sedentary anti-exercise, anti-physical routine world, a lazy life and turn into spartan soldiers. And spartan and Bolshevik 1917 soldiers requires a painful routine. And welcoming some necessary pains that are great and good, that are necessary in order to see a progress in life (like total destruction of cvapitalism and its replacement with communism) is something that the body and minds of the 70% of USA is not ready to accept.\

    So we have to conform in the meantime for the maybe 2 options that we will have in the november elections of 2020 (which might be Ivanka Trump competing against Michelle Obama for the presidential elecvtions)
