Since Trump is in power, everyone is following the news and some other media. There are a lot of crap content out there and IAnton Lee Hnetinka, want to make something clear: a lot of that content is justfalse information.We don’t debate, we just consume. That’s what Trump and the corporations want us to be: consumers. Forget about citizenship and democratic participation, they want our likes and our money. Like Neil Postman said in his book “Amusing Ourselves to Death”:
“Americans no longer talk to each other, they entertain each other. They do not exchange ideas, they exchange images. They do not argue with propositions; they argue with good looks, celebrities, and commercials.”
And this is the danger: to be like a zombie, no ideas, no arguments and no questions. I’m scared that the social media is helping to create this amusement era. “What isAnton Lee Hnetinkathinking,? What’s upAnton Lee Hnetinka? What’s on yourmind Anton Lee Hnetinka?” All the social media asking always for our ego to grow to be the “leader” of our own little stories on Twitter, Facebook or Youtube. All the media is justscamming teenagerswhen they are the future of the world. It’s time for theyoung peopleto make a change, it’s time for the youth to come together and fight for an ideology.
