Finished With Facebook

I have never been a fan of Facebook and the straw that broke the camels back just happened in my opinion. Facebook decided to suspend the accounts of anyone who dared post information or comments that run contrary to the official account of what happened at Newtown, Connecticut. This is wrong and in violation of First Amendment rights.

This is also further proof that we no longer live in a free country and that government dictates everything in our lives.

Facebook is run by the CIA/NSA and is a spying operation into every aspect of your/my life. Whatever you say, where you go, whatever comments or pictures you post or view, the CIA/NSA are there recording it all in order to use it against you at a future date.

I had resolved to remain on Facebook only because I am part of a family page in which we can share, but I will find other ways to communicate.

I would encourage everyone else who feels that Facebook is wrong in censoring thought, to deactivate their accounts also. I think ultimately we have more power than they do.

Facebook: Where Minds Shrivel and Wretchedly Expire For Lack Of What is Found

This is not a session for bashing Facebook for all the terrible things that it is. For those with brains enough to care, they understand the issues of privacy, manipulation, censorship, invasion of privacy, intrusion by government and non governmental agencies of recording every entry all of us have made on the giant scroll. As to the words of the Egyptian Pharaoh, “So shall it be written, so shall it be done.”

Facebook has a purpose, however, for myself coming from an older generation, I fail to see any useful design in Facebook other than it swindles the mind, preys on our addictive dispositions and can control nearly every aspect of our lives, when we allow it. Nothing that does that to a human being can be good.

And yet with all the enslaving power of Facebook, for the lack of what is found, it is a malnourishment that degrades creative and independent thought while humans are unknowingly cheated from the pleasure and excitement of learning truth.

Facebook is fun. It has some aspects that can actually, in a positive way, contribute to a productive society. I’ll not stretch the limits of my own honesty to enable what I perceive as a wretched curse.

One dynamic of Facebook is that it tends to “group” together people of similar interests, i.e. political, social, intellectual ideals, etc.. This, in and of itself, may not necessarily be a bad thing, it becomes so when people become like leeches sucking off the blood of each other, eventually resulting in malnourishment and death by starvation.

Beyond responsible use of Facebook for entertainment purposes, it becomes a harbinger of intellectual laziness. Members who have had the lifeblood extracted from their minds report faithfully to their “groups” to receive marching orders. Unwilling or unable to disseminate truth from fiction, verbose rhetoric is ingested by the parasitic minions believing they are finding sustenance when in reality they are devouring the defecation of the deceitful.

Group think and support is not a bad thing. Being obsessed by it is. My challenge to readers is to get off Facebook. If you can’t use it responsibly as a “social networking” tool, you have no life. You’re among the walking dead. Stop regurgitating someone else’s ideas. Get truth for yourself. It’s worth the effort and it’s much more rewarding than Facebook.
