Is it Time to Destroy the Internet?

Is it Time to Destroy the Internet?


Today we live in the age of instant information
and instant gratification, and many people feel they cannot live without the internet. However, for the longest time humanity did
just fine without it in their lives, and we could do so again. In fact, the truth is that at this point,
the internet is probably doing more harm than good to humanity, and it would be better if
it just went away for a while. While that may sound radical to some, we have
our reasons for saying so, which we will explain in today’s article. 10. The Internet Can Connect People, But It Can
Also Isolate You To The World Close To You Many people like to talk about how it is such
a great positive that the internet connects people from all over the world on sites like
Facebook. However, when you really stop to think about
it, while it seems like it is keeping us all connected, it can also keep us isolated without
us even realizing it. The problem is that when we see the little
status updates, and get that dopamine high, especially when we are already busy with real
life; it fulfills this part of our mind that believes we need to stay in touch with people
and spend time with them. That psychological fulfillment makes us think
we are being connected, but unless we are actually at least having conversations and
talking to them through messenger, we are more alone than ever, despite being able to
see pictures of their children and leave a like or two. We may be more connected, but we are also
more isolated than ever. 9. The Internet Has Almost All Knowledge, But
It Lacks A Filter To Help You Evaluate It The internet is often praised because it is
a repository of pretty much the sum total of all human knowledge (minus certain things
that are secret of classified). However, while this may sound like one of
the greatest things ever, it is a double-edged sword and comes at a great cost. We were always able to get to the vast majority
of humanity’s non-secret knowledge through libraries or other sources, but it took us
longer to do so, and required us to go through more trusted sources first. Now, through the internet, we can find thousands
or even millions of results about the same thing, and there is no guarantee they are
going to agree on any given bit of information. In fact, more often than not, they don’t. When researching anything online, you have
to be careful about who is and isn’t a legitimate source. This can be tricky because the internet has
made us all think we are experts on everything when we really aren’t. Evaluating information when you don’t know
a subject well already is extra hard, and if someone wants to build a foundation first
to understand the information they found on the internet, they usually try to build that
foundation of knowledge… on the internet. 8. Facebook Has Become So Omnipresent It Is Sui
Generis In Terms Of Power Sui generis means “in a class of its own”
and that is basically what has happened with the social media site Facebook. It has become so dominant and so powerful
that its influence can practically be compared to that of many governments, and there is
little in the way of real regulation to control how or why they do business the way they do. Some countries have occasionally turned Facebook
off for a bit in times of crisis, but the backlash is usually so fierce that it quickly
returns. This brings up the question about what to
do with something like Facebook in the long term. As a single company, without taking any of
our money, they have managed an insane amount of influence over our daily lives, and no
social network, or social habits, seem currently capable of breaking people of that influence
(or addiction, as the case may be with some, due to the constant dopamine high we get from
scrolling through). The truth is that something like Facebook
is simply unprecedented in known human history, and it could have unknown ramifications decades
from now — it is already hard to quantify just how much it is changing the way we interact,
and removing the internet entirely may be the only way to stop it. 7. No Bad Idea Cannot Be Found With Detailed
Instructions And Advocates For Its Use The internet is a place where you can find
information about pretty much anything — and sometimes you don’t even have to look that
hard. Unfortunately, this isn’t limited to just
the good stuff. If you want instructions for how to 3D print
a gun, or make bombs or other dangerous things, you just need to hop online, and that’s
really only the start. If it’s illegal and you can think of it,
its online. And the internet just isn’t policed that
well, as people are uploading things constantly and creating new web pages all the time, and
there is little oversight. The FBI and other international organizations
are constantly looking for things like child pornography and some of the worst, most illegal
things that are being shown, sold, or given instructions on how to do, but it’s like
trying to remove all the water out of the ocean with a bucket. And, to make matters worse, a lot of legal
gray areas make the information hard to take down as long as the person says they aren’t
actually using it, and that it’s just for educational purposes. 6. The Internet Has Normalized All Kinds Of Bizarre
Fetishes Into The Mainstream Now, don’t get us wrong, we aren’t saying
we are prudishly against pornography or that there is anything wrong with something that
consenting people do in their own bedrooms. However, the proliferation of pornography
on the internet, as satirized by South Park, has often made it harder and harder for a
lot of people to get off simply by watching, reading, or thinking about normal, vanilla
sex. It’s practically boring now to some people
(you can find dozens of articles online about whether or not you should “shame” people
for liking vanilla sex), and almost every piece of sexual media now has some kind of
strange fetish, or some special element to it to make it more interesting. In a way this is not surprising, as the internet
has led to a renaissance in terms of high quality entertainment, but it has also led
to a situation where many young people start getting into sex and expect things that may
not necessarily be reality. And also, while it may be easy enough to find
people into the stranger fetishes online, it may be a lot harder to find a partner who
is also into it, and the internet is full of people talking about how they are struggling
either to get their partner to accept their fetish, or deal with their partner’s strangeness. This doesn’t mean it’s wrong to have a
harmless but weird fetish, but it has made a lot of young people have unrealistic expectations
about sex, and maybe given them an inaccurate view of how easy it is to find a compatible
partner that shares a rarer fetish. 5. Child Pornography Has Proliferated Like Never
Before In the age of the internet, child porn has
become a huge problem, and it isn’t showing signs of stopping anytime soon. The problem is that the internet is worldwide
and people can upload things from any corner of the globe, which makes it hard to actually
punish or get to a lot of people even when you do realize who is the one perpetrating
the wrongdoing. You may have to refer things to their country’s
law enforcement and wait, while children are suffering. And of course, that is if you can track them
to begin with, as evil child pornographers are constantly using new tools in an attempt
to stay anonymous with the authorities. And for webmasters, you cannot just ban people
in most cases from posting pictures at all (you would have no one left using your websites),
so instead, with a combination of automated programs, and often traumatized humans, we
as a species play a grim game of child porn whack-a-mole. But as long as the internet exists, especially
as the mostly unregulated international entity that it is, it is unlikely we will ever be
able to eradicate it from the worldwide web entirely. 4. Bullying Has Now Been Taken To An Entirely
New Level In The Modern Age Back in the day, if you wanted to bully someone
you had to at least have the courage to face them in person, or maybe call their house,
which required a little more nerve than a quick message on Facebook. Now, people feel emboldened to simply be mean,
and to constantly attack others all day on social media, even when they know full well
if they pulled that in person they would probably get a very real punch in the face. Now, whole gangs of kids can easily harass
one person without leaving the comfort of their homes, and drive them to suicide. And it’s rather hard to properly punish
them for it. Unless they are actually demonstrably encouraging
someone to commit suicide, that kind of intent can be hard to prove, and punishments are
much less harsh for minors anyway, from a legal standpoint. The truth is that as long as the internet
exists, at least as such an unregulated entity, it is going to be a hotbed for bullying, whether
it is just an individual or an entire group ganging up on other kids, and it is going
to be very hard to stop. It gives bullies a feeling of power, and it
causes the victims to feel like they never have a place they can go to escape the pain. Some would say just go offline, but with the
youth of today, that pretty much involves social isolation, so it isn’t really an
effective or long term escape from the bullying. 3. No Matter How Bad What You Believe Is, You
Will Find Friends Online Before the dawn of the internet, if you had
really awful ideas, such as racism, it would be really hard to find that many people who
agreed with you that vociferously, especially depending on where you live. However, with the help of the internet you
can find people who will agree with any bad idea you have. You could believe that young boys should be
able to consent to sex like NAMBLA, the very real organization satirized on South Park,
or that sex with animals is okay, or whatever bad idea you can imagine. You will find friends on the internet. And it has gotten bad enough that you will
find people who not only think it isn’t so bad, but will defend it (and you) to the
ends of the earth. This allows bad ideas that were on the fringe,
and dying out, to see a sudden resurgence in popularity, and infect an entirely new
generation with some of the same old bad ideas and behaviors we once thought we had eliminated. With the help of such mass communication,
it is all too easy to ensure that no bad idea ever truly dies, and sometimes even returns
stronger than ever. 2. It Is No Longer A Bastion Of Free Communication,
And Its Usefulness Is Ending Quickly Net neutrality has officially ended in the
USA, and despite efforts to curtail the inevitable, the telecoms are winning the battle, and their
money is winning the day. However, after all that spending, all they
really may end up doing is killing the internet once and for all, and as such foolishly killing
their own business off like the greedy idiots they are. The truth is that the free enterprise and
fairness and ability of anyone to do anything on the internet was what made it useful, despite
the double-edged sword aspects, and with that gone it will slowly become more like a slightly
interactive form of cable television. When the big telecoms start to control more
and more corners of the internet, and independent and burgeoning websites begin to die off,
people will find it less and less useful, and perhaps spend more time interacting with
each other in person for a change, or at least reach out through telephone chatting more,
instead of just “liking” or “retweeting” things. The fact of the matter is that when something
that was all about free communication becomes… well, not that, it’s hard to expect it to
exist much longer, at least in anything close to its current form. 1. It Has Almost Become “Too Big Too Fail”
and The Consequences Could Be Dire Now, the argument by some when we talk about
moving on from the internet is that it’s almost too integral a part of daily life,
and “too big to fail.” However, the argument against this is the
same one many made against bailing out certain banks after financial collapses. The idea is that if something is too big too
fail, then we need to let it fail anyway and fix the mess regardless of the pain, because
something that we can live without, but that is “too big too fail,” is overall a detriment
to society that will eventually collapse on its own. If we control the collapse, we can at least
mitigate the damage. However, if we wait until too late, until
the internet really starts to fall apart on its own, the damage to our social and other
physical infrastructure is going to be much harder to contain, as it will not really be
a “controlled dive” off of our dependency on the internet. However, the good news is that we have lived
without it before, and we can live without it again. And if we could end our dependence on the
internet, we could still be technologically advanced and have quick communication, but
go back to a better, more thoughtful society that spent more time on real life, personal,
meaningful interaction, and was happier and better for it.

  • Great question, the problem with the internet is. To much information for to little of mind. You have to 16 to drive,18 to vote and 21 to drink. But you can be 2/any age to get on line. Sad that all I can say.

  • No internet. No Simon, no Dave, no Shell???? How would we get Top tenz, TIFO, Highlight history, and Biografics??? I mean you guys can do Blu-ray right??? You could just mail those out daily right??? HOW WOULD I GET MY DAILY FIX!!!! This is an apocalypse you speak of!

    Edit: On a serious note I agree with several of these points. The people that self diagnose their “problems” have become a source of uncontrollable out lash from me. (Just a disgusted face or eye roll) I usually end these conversations quickly or ask if they have talked to a professional.

  • One of the main reasons to why bad ideas are on the rise, is because of internet censorship . If you censor a flat earth conspiracy theorist, he will just more to the darker side of the internet were people share his same bad ideas and it will go unchallenged by the rest of the world. This may even lead them to adopting more radical ideas as the human heart lens too the extremes.

  • I don't need it personally. I currently need it for my business, but we could go back to non-internet operations in about one operating cycle. Bring it down.

  • 4. Point – Cyberbullying
    Im 17 atm and im quite "lonely" irl and not the most likeable person. Despite that i dont get bullied irl and not online eather. I also dont know enyone who gets bullied there. When people do get bullyed tho and go toward suicide its kinda their own fault as well as they can help rlly easily from online and irl if they just talk about the matters. Also there's a reason behind bullying and it wont stop after the demise of the internet. It would likely just get more fiscal.
    Its just my opinion pls dont take offence.

  • Michael Hartwell says:

    I could not find an amused emoji. I sit here watching the vid on youtube, which is doing some kind of optimization routine. Feeding me particular videos and clips based on my likes and preferences. I enjoy Whistler/crew's work but. His video is on a commercial application running on a worldwide communications network(S). These networks are designed AND implemented to be able to route information, fact, data, evidence AND bullshit. Too late Pandora's box is open. And humanity does not have a big enough bucket to repack the information. The internet and quite frankly since the renaissance in Europe and Asia, and the Rest of the World depending on schedule, have just sped up or slowed down information, never destroyed it. It follows Sturgeons Law: 90% of everything is shit. the tricky bit is figuring out the 10%

  • Randall Willis says:

    I, for one, would miss the TopTenz lists if we shuttered the Internet…although, perhaps you could just snail mail the lists to followers or even take on a world tour

  • Though you touched on most of the issues I have with the internet, there's one you missed (probably more, but the following is something I've dealt with frequently): searching for anything online is like seeking a single unique needle in a haystack full of needles that are similar but not quite the one you want. Instead you get bombarded by ads that claim to give you what you want but are really just click bait for more ads, thereby leading you farther away from the thing you are seeking.

  • I wish there was no Internet or cell phones anymore… Even for a brief time period, Imagine no social media! Just saying that would be great! I think I was born in the wrong decade, I should have probably been alive during the 1940s….. I wonder if that's a thing you could make a video about? people feeling like they were born in the wrong decade .

  • The internet as a whole is useful beyond comprehension, what needs to be destroyed is corporate influence on it. Companies like Facebook, Twitter, and I dare say even Google need to be stopped. The amount of information they collect and possess about people is terrifying. The internet should be a place of communication, information and entertainment, not a tool by giant corporate conglomerates or the government to find out better and better ways to track you or fill your screens with useless ads and notifications.

  • I'm watching while on a road trip with my family.

    My great granny is telling us about the depression, but I've already seen the TopTenz video on that.

  • Big telecom really is not too bright. They fight to control the internet and in the process kill off their host body. They really are just like cancer, killing off what keeps it alive.

  • the only good thing about the internet is the ease of shopping to get supplies that big chain stores don't carry electronic parts mainly and the ease of learning new engineering designs and it is up to the person to research and educate instead of someone saying this is true or too dangerous to know. During the printing press era nobles were scared that peasants wouldn't know what was good knowledge were as in todays era anyone that would argue against general education would be "stoned"

  • Who's to say what damage social media has already done and will do by 2029 – 25 years after it emerged (regarding facebook as the first strong player in 2004).

    We've also got the issue of 'the machines' becoming self-aware in 2029 and they might not opt to murder us where we stand but control us via our access to the internet hahaha!

  • 10:00 Am beginning to regret throwing away my 1982 BBC Micro 32k with 'State of the Art dial up Technology, where you waited ages to download a tiny text document or 8k Blocky Picture.

  • Happy to see the Internet die. It was excellent and quite useful in the '80s, but started to go bad when it was opened up to the wrong people.

  • Simon, I agree with you assessment of the internet. We need to get away from the useless over hyped aspects of the internet and go back to what the internet was intended for.

  • The way Southpark had Randy going nuts because he could not get his specialty porn in Over Logging was to funny. Till then I never really wondered about how nuts some of those sites might be or how far people would go. At least not till things like Robot Chicken's how Osama Bin Laden really died and Family Guys Quagmire being a sex maniac started to become mainstream.

  • Even if all the collected data shared on the internet was cleared and gone, we could still create many ad-hoc type networks that are anywhere from the size of one household connecting those computers, to a whole neighborhood, to a city, to a state and eventually country and by then if it’s a multi-state or country wide grid, there would be more than enough info from many sources to basically start a new internet over again. Plus all the fiber optic lines are already in place at the bottom of the ocean to connect to other continents.
    Just because we wipe the data doesn’t mean all the tech will suddenly stop working, so I would see a new internet coming back rather quickly.

  • Look, I agree that we spend too much time online and we all need to get out more, but there are things online that are super helpful. Do you know how hard it would be to get parts for my 68 corvair without the internet?

  • Trebor Ironwolfe says:

    The only unusual fetish I have is for trapping stray neighborhood cats, clothing them with those adorable tiny sweaters, taping saran wrap to the bottoms of their paws, and releasing them on the waxed floor of my living room as I watch old Jerry Springer reruns.

  • Michael Hurley says:

    I wish I could use the internet to build a time machine and go back in time before the internet was invented. Then stop it from happening.

  • Meh let an CME take out the internet and the power grid too. I don't really do social media (least of all Fakebook, I like my privacy) or real life either so the only thing I'll have to change is having to hunt my own food and going back to fapping to paper mags instead of Pornhub.

  • I like Russia's solution: simply unplug for the rest of their world and build their own national internet (not hard or expensive to do if you nationalize the telecom companies). I'm surprised China hasn't done this already instead of continuing that Great Firewall, which is easy enough to circumvent.

  • It's not okay for companies to decide what is true or not, gatekeeping information is incredibly dangerous
    Google and YouTube are doing this right now, with the protection of a platform they act as editors and tell people what is true or fake news, they censor political beliefs/opinions that go against their own political positions, and in doing so they manipulate public opinion, and national and even global elections
    It's one of if not the biggest threat to freedom in the world today
    Silicone valley has no right to gatekeep information, or editorialize information/media on their "platforms"

  • Robert J. Williamson says:

    I think the internet has empowered everyone. When I was growing up you simply had to accept that you did not know or understand certain things. If you wanted to know about, Ancient Egypt, for example, you had to go to your library and get a book in which there might be a hand full of pictures. And that is all you could ever hope to know about it unless you travelled to Egypt or somewhere with more information. Interested in an artist? Library and book again. Want to see a movie? Well unless your local video shop has a copy you can never see it.

    Even most music was not available unless you literally wrote to order it and how could you know where to write? You did not know which record label a band belonged to so you could not call them and asked to send a money order for a record. If you wanted to see a band in concert you just had to look in the local press and hope you'd see an advert. When travelling anywhere you had to carry a map with you. Then when you got to the town you need an AtoZ map of the town.

    I remember writing to get a copy of a Sex Pistols album and waiting several months for it. We had three TV channels and they finished at midnight. After that, there was literally nothing to watch and video games didn't exist unless you had a lot of money and went to an arcade.

    I wonder if young people raised with the internet even consider what it was like to want to know something but have literally no way of finding it out. Or to see a film, TV show or music but have no means to do so. I can tell you that it was shit.

  • Thought experiment: If a large solar flare( Biblical in scale) hit the earth tomorrow and there was no power or Internet for "X" amount of time???? A week ,a month, a year or more in some places. How would we do considering most of the money today is numbers on a screen?

    Short Answer : problems

    Long Answer : PPPPPPPPPRRRRRRROOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEMMMMMMMMSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lefties want to 'filter' the information on the internet like Youtube does de-monetizing and banning information that doesn't fit a certain narrative

  • If anything has to be got rid of, it will be private ownership of cars. The 8nternet isn't a blessing to the poor. We now have to buy a computer/ phone. This can cost several hundreds of dollars. Also pay for service. It may not sound expensive, but can be for low income people.

    How do you actually do this? Just shut off the web.

  • I think sometime in the future, old encyclopedia sets will have value again. Basically information that was compiled before PC culture took over and started rewriting history. They still won't be perfect accounts, because nothing is. It may have value just for being closer chronologically, to the events themselves. Google is actively editing history.

  • I would imagine the beginning stages of constructing the great pyramid prob felt like draining the ocean with a bucket, but mankind completed the task. It took a tremendous amount of organization and strategy, but we did it.

    I dont think burning the whole thing down is the path forward, but there does absolutely need to be some serious discussions about how to mitigate the all too real ramifications that come with unlimited information or disinformation, without stripping man kind of its fundamentally beneficial attributes.

  • Awesome! Excellent points all around. Democracy can only exist with an educated constituency. But today, we all live in our own reality.

  • Ronald Smallwood says:

    #10 True especial between Internet Junkies (my sons) and the Stop-By-Say-"Hi!" folks (my wife).
    #9 Lets get serious about search education!
    #8 Only because people are to lazy find an use multiple trust worthy sources.
    #7 Idiots, criminal, and mentally unhealthy have always been with and will be.
    #6 Beyond better sex education, addicts (porn or otherwise) will be addicts.
    #5 This needs really tough laws with strong punishments.
    #4 Again education but of parents. Bullying only works if the victim is unprepared to deal with it and the bully feels a need to be "in control". Self-esteem need to be developed very early on so parent need to take action.
    #3 People need to learn how to make real friends in the real world. Parents & teachers, I'm looking at you.
    #2 Until money loses its power, this will be a big problem. I grew up in a city with 3 newspapers but all were owned by the same person.
    #1 My question is "how do control the failure of the internet?" The economic impact would be extreme from Amazon to banking to local business & garage sales ads.

  • In my opinion, the internet brings attention to all the bad things going on that we might not even know about, unless it's right in your face. Things that are going on all over the world and in our own yards that we is a people can fix now that we know about it or at least control it. The whole world sees things going on that can now be addressed. A person can be their own filter as to what is going on all over the world. I am a better person for having the knowledge of what is going on in other countries. The internet also helps us locate criminal activity through places like Facebook. Picking through the information on the internet and finding the usable practical information that you need, is what it is going to be like. And we all know it is a better tool for the authorities.. this is just my opinion and I do not feel that moving backwards with technology is going to help anybody.

  • If internet is going to die, should I try to save all of those weird or useful things that are only there? There are so many "stupid" memes that are actually a genius pieces of art. There are so many useful pieces of information that could be censored if the right people came to power and find them dangerous. (like they do child porn). Not to forget the information about the things that would help us survive the "post internet apocalypse". I really think that many people would die if the internet suddenly stopped existing. It would start an economic crisis and all those upheavals that come with it. If you thought the 2008. crisis, and all the wars and rebellions that were caused or made worse by it were bad, know that things can get much worse.

    Wait! Some of the information that is easily found online, and hardly found anywhere else, could suddenly become so important that it would bring me great riches. It is actually easy to guess what kind of information is needed for that. Ah, lottery is for losers who don't know there are better things to gamble about. I think that few dozens of hours and half of the money I now have in my wallet would be enough to make my life worth living if there would be no YouTube videos to watch and comment in my vain quests to suppress my sorrows into oblivion.

  • Gordon Lawrence says:

    There are some aspects of the internet which we really need. I represent people in tribunals in the UK for benefits (sickness and disability benefits). The government now has a legal obligation to post the legislation online along with relevant "statutory instruments". Before this it was an absolute nightmare to get copies without spending a fortune and you had to know the serial number of the document to order it from HMSO which often were not published anywhere (the document numbers that is). I use peer reviewed medical journal articles a lot when representing people. These can be obtained free of charge with some effort through the internet, and the "access to research" programme is one example of this. Previously a subscription to the journals would be needed and it was multiple journals with subscriptions of £200+ per year, or access to a library that had them (very few and far between). The same is true of both case law and "commissioners reports", There are books which contain these but again they are £100+ and updated every 6 months. So to keep current in all three aspects would be a full time job on it's own and cost about £5000 per year. Completely unfeasible given that the people I represent cannot afford to eat properly never mind pay for representation.

  • The problem isn't the technology, it's just that our culture is still too immature to handle it. Relative to the age of our society, the Internet has been around for a hilariously short time, and we just aren't quite used to it yet.

  • The internet is the metaphorical Pandoras box. It's been opened honestly I don't see how anyone could put the lid back on.

  • If you think about it the internet is the modern tower of babble. The one world language that we used to reach heaven and become good like and rule the world

  • Ever read 1984? The internet veracity filter smacks of Orwellian rhetoric. We already deal with doublespeak and Big Brother's ever watchful eye. Must we bleat our way willingly to ignorance as we allow governments and businesses to decide what is today's truths? A little too Wag the Dog for me.

  • #2 & 1# demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding of what exactly constitutes "the internet". You're conflating The Internet with the world wide web (WWW).

  • Jackson Jamieson says:

    Social media companies are the new monopolies of this century just like Standard Oil and Carnegie Steel of the 1890s. Except they control our information and what we can see and search something far more scary…

  • I think you did a very thoughtful job of discussing the errors we see in life today. Thank you for always trying to shine a light on truth.

  • One in five Americans insists the sun revolves around the earth, over half debate the definitions of words never suspecting or caring in the slightest that the dictionary merely contains popular definitions, and it is illegal to vote for Mickey Mouse in Maryland. The internet cannot possibly make them any more stupid than they have always been, and their teachers insist that teaching them how to share their words and play nice is a waste of time, and they need to learn critical thinking skills. Academics are lobbying congress to censor the internet in order to protect the same idiots they teach from themselves, and insisting that a president who cuts the mass media a deal on their rent with the money he saves never paying taxes and 300 million people all voting for whoever advertises the most in every local and national election is a functional democracy.

    When an academic asked me what can be done to save the planet from the growing list of man-made disasters, I suggest he find out who is teaching all the idiots how to destroy the planet faster. Call me brain damaged, but either someone starts to share their words and play nice and actually take responsibility for the world falling apart, or an education is the last thing you need.

  • Don't stop the internet, how else would I be able to sit here alone watching things I don't care about on a Friday night.

  • An interesting Deep Dive would be ‘What would happen if the internet collapsed?’, considering how much infrastructure relies on it

  • No internet means total financial collapse everywhere instantly.
    Banks operate using internet communications and if that goes then so does debit and credit cards and all those apps which allow you to do anything including book a hooker.
    "Oh but telephones" you say? Well the truth is that 99% of the analogue communications infrastructure has been replaced with digital that operates on… You guessed it !!! THE INTERNET…

  • At this point, unless there is an unknown work like the one at the end of "Ready Player One", getting rid of the Internet is not really a possibility.

  • Who is gong to be the "filter"? Something they disagree with is will be banned? No opposing views/thoughts? The very idea is scary.

  • I actually believe you need to prove you're sane to even have access to the internet.

    No more "lizard leaders" trolls fooling the gullible

  • Rodney Johnson says:

    Sure, why not? Trump and his cab are in the process of destroying America as we know it. So why not burn the whole wretched place to the ground and start over.

  • Just let the entire human race fail. Better that way. Seriously though, pretty depressing this quandary we have created. This video is 100% true.
