A life centered around views, clicks, likes – “share this”, is all wrong. Here’s why:
Each time you post on social you’re feeding the machine that’s choking us, that’s antithetical to freedom. You’re contributing to the breakdown and decline of our society.
The words of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi:
Gandhi said, “I want the dumb millions of our land to be healthy and happy and I want them to grow spiritually…If we feel the need of machines we will certainly have them. Every machine that helps every individual has a place. “…but there should be no place for machines that concentrate the power in a few hands and turn the masses into mere machine minders, if indeed they do not make them unemployed”.
We need a new Internet. One that’s decentralized, where social media doesn’t exist. One that’s about freedom.
