Internet Addiction is Real
second law of thermodynamics applied to society. The latest example of American societal decline is internet addiction. I found this great article about internet addiction by Winston Ross in Newsweek. What really makes his article pop is the anecdotal example of his own brother choosing to be homeless and spend his days on the internet at the library instead of fitting into normal societal roles. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of not fitting into traditional societal roles, but not necessarily like that. Look, I spend a lot of time on the internet, but not at the expense of work, family, or anything else important. Maybe I'm in denial. Just another step toward the fall of Western civilization.
