Re: I'm taking a 6 month leave of the Internet...................ASK ME A QUESTION.
I agree with just about 100% of what you wrote.

The last TV I owned was more than 10 years ago. I went in favor of print and the 'net, cooler mediums in the sense of allowing more thoughtful analysis I thought.

Now IMO the 'net has become ubiquitous, a cash cow, and the mis and dis info put forth has morphed into an art form almost. Plus, it's a huge, engulfing time sink.

One of my dearest old friends, and mentor, was a man who lived in a very remote part of the world. He read no newspapers, had no radio nor TV let alone a computer or net connection. Yet he was the most informed person I've ever met, saw the big picture clearly and was never confused by the daily scuttlebutt or the bread and circuses.

I support your decision OP, I want to move in that direction as well.

The Internet is not heavily controlled like T.V. and newsprint.

Anyone can post virtually anything in cyberspace.

This is good.

You see the difference?


------



The internet is heavily 'influenced.' How about that?


soon to be completely controlled.


I see little difference. If it's influenced properly (which it's pretty much there now), it is the same as being controlled...even if you think 'we' control it. We don't.



The Internet would cease to exist if this happened.

It would simply be TV again, and there is no sign of things regressing like this, save some emergency shutdown protocol.

And even that is an unknown.

You would have to 'control' everyone who would interface with the net.

That won't happen.


------




It's already happening...and it still exists.

In fact, people have fallen in line just like the sheep we are. Aren't you catching on yet? Don't you get their methods yet? They give you the illusion of choice, but the choices they offer all work towards their end. The fact that you think you have some control of media, is proof that their plan is rolling along perfectly.


Do you think that all this 'waking up' isn't planned...by their design?


Sorry, we are being controlled more than ever...we just think we aren't. It's a perfect plan.



If they are the masters of reality, why bother having the Internet in the first place?

If 'they' are all powerfull, why even start a medium where they can be exposed?

Where's the logic?


------



One: they are not "all powerful," or "masters of reality," they just think they are...and want you to believe they are.

Two: You, "waking up," is by their design and not by your 'uncanny ability to find the truth,' as you would like to believe.

The internet is important for this reason, among many other reasons.
 Quoting: ToyTV



Hmm. Well I do have a drive want to know what the truth is, but some of the best info I've experienced has been by happenstance. In other words, the truth was really discovered by others and I just happened to come across it by chance*. Standing on others shoulders and all that.

I agree that the Internet is important for that reason. Instead of information being fed to you, like TV and print, the net allows you to discern whatever it is that you are researching from multiple sources.

Plus, the Internet has a shelf life. It's usefulness will run out, and be supplanted by a communication medium that's much more grander and faster than we could ever imagine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1142970



I don't pay bills online.

And, for my work (which is also going to be changing soon), I will still have to use email lightly...but that will be it. I am getting rid of my laptop, and will do all email through my phone or ipod. The internet at my home will be shut off. I will only have it at my studio...where I will not have much time for it anyway.

Well, good for you. I have tried to do the same in the past, but without success. It truly is as addictive as television, if not more so. I am in a contract until next spring, but when it ends, I will not renew. I think the Internet is the ultimate distraction.
