After listening to a mere 20 minutes of an Alex Jones broadcast, my blood pressure has probably gone up. He spent a good 5 of those minutes excoriating people for buying frivolous Christmas gifts like clothing and sweets and Pagan-inspired Christmas decorations - buy paranoia-drenched, pseudohistorical shit from him instead! Annoy your friends! Depress your family! Make everyone wish you'd get carted off to a FEMA detention camp so they don't have to listen to your fatalistic bullshit a minute longer! And to top it off, an ad in which a father urges his son to give up Spongebob and listen to paranoia radio instead.
Heading over to Facebook to clear my head of this brain pollution, I encounter the group "Leaving Facebook". That's right. A call for people for people to abandon the cryptofascist, omnipotent entity known as Facebook...posted on Facebook. Gawd. If you're concerned about the longevity of your online presence and the government's use of it, don't have an online presence. In fact, don't have any presence - 'cause if the government wants to find you, it will. Get used to it. Don't panic. Don't fret. Just deal. Unless you're doing something naughty, you probably have less than nothing to worry about, anyway.
And don't you dare tell me that I'm frivolous, or media-controlled, or that I'm under Reptilian-spaceman mind control, or whatever the hell else you think is wrong with everybody except you. I'm a depressive and I don't have the luxury of lapsing into gloom-&-doom paranoia as a hobby. I like Spongebob. I will watch TV if I damn well feel like it. I will laugh my ass off at lolcats. I don't need to submerge myself in crazy endtimes fear-mongering to justify my existence on this planet or to prove I'm not one of the sheeple.
Sure, I'm concerned about defending my rights, but those rights include the right to be frivolous once in a while!
