I've been looking at questions and answers on some Orkut communities for about 15 minutes, and I'm really just starting to lose my faith in my own generation and in humanity at large. People comment on everything from politics and religion but I have this sneaking suspicion they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about!
These same people also usually drop these comments in mid-sentence, with little-to-no cohesive sentence structure, sign of intellectual analysis or even ponderous musings for that matter.
I'm really struggling here. I'd like to say I have faith in humanity and people, but when I actually hear what people are thinking, it slowly and steadily chips away at this ideal.
Is the internet making people more retarded, or did these people always exist and now they just have a medium to express their idiocy through, that coincidentally coincides with my own?
My husband says that folks are no dumber than they used to be, it's just that now every moron with a computer and a phone line can broadcast his or her moronic thoughts to the world.
But lets face it. Isn't that cool? to be able to say how what and why we feel the way we do and in a sense get it off our chests so that hopefully we can maybe move on or at least get a sense of how others think.,
I'm at home now and don't get to discuss issues with my hubby or at least I rarely do. So this is a good way to help me interact with others and see what they think.
