Well, I finally broke down and watched the movie The Social Network.
Not the movie, the behavior it portrays. It's one of those films which shows the ugly sides of humanity, and makes me want to scrub out the gene pool with a powerful bleach.
I cannot stand sociopaths, and watching them gleefully smash through the lives of others and accidentally profit while doing so is not something I prefer to dwell on. Yeah, we are a debased society, and we reward the worst trolls with the most gold, for ruining what little of value is left.
People who cannot deal with other people have resorted to living their lives via the Internet. Witness the popularity of Second Life, a sort of recreation for many who should think about a First Life. Passing time in a harmless hobby is fine, but not to the point where it inhibits the player from forming real human bonds. And each passing year it gets worse.
So if you want to see how we as a culture and a society have devolved, watch the movie. Most of the women are portrayed as little more than prizes for undeserving slimeballs, who gain their favors with gold and fame. Wheee, women as desperate, gold-digging, semi-hookers. How special.
If this is what we have become, someone owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
