The Internet Is 24-7 But Does Society Have To Be?

by Joseph Ratliff

The Internet is always on.

The mobile networks are always on.

But does society have to be “always on”?

No…it doesn’t.

I mean fuck people, there are people walking around texting while walking across streets, can’t they just walk?  Can’t they just have a regular conversation with their friends (who they ignore while they text)?

I can’t even try to count the number of people I’m seeing who seem to have to be “doing something” all the time.  And I don’t mean enjoying life.

I mean working 40 hours or more a week (we’re about the only country in the world that still does)…I mean always “working on the house”…always texting, emailing, blogging, what…the…fuck…ever.

They just keep going, and going, and going.


It’s frustrating to see people just let their lives run on a bad form of autopilot.  It fritters away…then one day they wonder where their life went.

Is this you?

Stop it.  Today.
