It’s an interesting point the amusing Anonymous YouTube channel makes in their newest addition their radical collection of conspiracy theories. Perhaps it’s even fun to ponder if you have nothing better to do (?) or perhaps people are just really bored. But I’m calling BS. Fully aware that I can’t speak for others, but I’ll do just about anything to avoid my phone, email or social media personally, unless there’s an extremely valid reason for it. Rather than being addicted to these things, if anything I avoid them probably more than I? should, much to the chagrin of friends and family; and I honestly just do not believe that most normal everyday people are “addicted” to these things either.
And the idea that this social media / phone addiction is in fact a secret conspiracy by an invisible elite to control the unwashed masses into even yet further submission…. Seriously?!?!
Not discounting the rare cases of a very few possible people out there who really might feel “addicted” to their phone or social media — hell, anything can happen… — if anything, westerners seem in reality more addicted to hyperbolic extremist ideas, jumping on them en mass like locusts, such as the above idea, or that everyone has ADHD or is allergic to gluten. Remember those?
