What’s wrong with social media?!
Question from the Internet:
“Is social media a benefit or a problem for the development of knowledge for a globally connected society?”
Social media is a cesspit we — especially our children — sink into without any hope to develop as truly Human beings.
But social media — like everything else — is simply a tool, and how it turns out depends on how we use it. And as long as we use everything through our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, subjective and exploitative nature, everything turns into a ‘weapon of mass destruction” against ourselves!
While we stubbornly promote and celebrate our toxic, cancer-like individuality we destroy everything since from Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system’s viewpoint individuals only exist and have merit to the extent they promote the well-being and optimal development of the whole.
We have to learn and implement a totally different, mutually responsible, mutually complementing lifestyle, all of us making calculations only for the sake of others and the whole system. And this has to be so not according to our arbitrary, misguided, egocentric and subjective ideologies, philosophies and religions, but according to Nature’s strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws that govern the general homeostasis life depends on.
As soon as we changed our intentions, goals, and viewpoints — with the help of a special, purposeful and practical method — we will be able to use everything we ever invented, created for the desired, positive purpose, goal. There is nothing obsolete in Nature’s system, only how we use things has to change.
