Don't Blame Trump For The Death of News and Social Media
On this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
THIS IS THE OPENING PARAGRAPH OF COMMON SENSE BY THOMAS PAINE:
To my fellow Americans:
Not everyone will agree with the principles outlined in this book. That may be because things have been wrong for so long that people have come to accept it as normal. Some people might be reluctant to accept these principles since it defies the “normal.” Eventually, however, the truth always prevails.
AND IT'S AS TRUE A STATEMENT TODAY AS EVER.
We've come to accept gossip, slander, lies, name calling and out and out absurdities as normal but it's not normal at all.
Take a look at the news feed on Facebook or Twitter on any given day. What you will find? Gossip, slander, lies, name calling and out and out absurdities.
What would we do without Facebook? I don't know maybe bring a little sanity back to the world? Name one good thing Facebook has done for the world. Name anything good that's come out of social media in general. Where's all the environmentalists? Social media is single biggest polluter of the human mind ever in history. It's done more damage than mercury, lead paint and heroin combined. Look I'm not making this up there's been studies and reports on top of studies and reports confirming this. There's even been top executives from these companies that have come out and said how damaging it is. You can't blame Trump for all of it.
So hit the play button!
