Forget everything else, the Internet is the worst thing to ever happen to mankind
I honestly couldn't tell you what prompted me to write this message. But here it goes.

I originally first discovered GLP after seeing some videos on Youtube declaring that the 9/11 incident was planned by our own government. Until this point, I was clueless and became very interested in conspiracies. After a few searches I came across this site and have learned more here, then I ever did in my previous 30 years of existence. I spent countless hours reading everything I could, in the process realizing what a sham that life really was.

But here's the crazy part. I've come to realize that the internet was the worst thing to ever happen to mankind. What began as a fun journey, has now become a painstaking ritual that I continue to abuse myself with today. You see, I read the conspiracies and visited the site daily. I even started to believe a lot of the stuff that I was reading. I begin to think that I was smarter then all the other "sheeple" around me. However, time after time...I would read stuff here and elsewhere and would try to fill the "sheeple" in on what was going on. Imagine how foolish I looked when I told people that BP killed the Ocean, or that Disclosure was around the corner, or blah, blah, blah.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that the internet provides us with too much info. Now, everyone is an expert because they can just google it. Anything that happens in the world...we know about it instantly. When is enough, enough already? I guess today when I go outside, the sun is going to melt my skin huh? I'm all for having access to all the information we can, I just don't think that people can handle too much info. Now, everytime the sun farts, or an earthquake shakes whatever region...it's the end of the world. Guess what people? Tomorrow will come, and the day after that, and the day after that, and so on.

I had a really good point I was gonna make, but just typing this much has worn me out already. Simply put...I think the internet has made everyone an expert and at the same time, also made everyone paranoid. Nothing wrong with being prepared, but in reality if TSHTF...what can you really do. Enjoy life while you can and don't let the internet ruin it for you.

There other ways to waste time on the net, which i think are worse than informing yourself about (improbable) mysteries.

The internet is information and constant communication...


Whatever you choose to do with it is what you get.


I choose to use it to look at GLP and learn.


Others use it to look at porn and Facebook to reconnect with old fuck buddies.


You get what you put in to it.

Re: Forget everything else, the Internet is the worst thing to ever happen to mankind
Sounds like you might need to unplug for a while, OP.

It sounds almost anti-intuitive, but is it possible for you to leave your smartphone/GPS and 4G lifestyle for a while? Just drive the car off into a state or national forest for a couple of night with nothing but an open mind and some camping gear and provisions and just get back to nature?

I'm not trying to come off as accusatory right here, I'm honestly wondering whether many of us can do this. I'm plugged in 24/7 unless I choose otherwise, and I make a point of doing so a couple of times a year.

I've been immersed in the alternative culture/conspiracy-exploring mindset for longer than most, and just making the conscious effort to experience another way of life (smaller town, rural community) does wonders for me.

In a more general sense I'd agree that Internet has added to the layers of confusion in the lives of many, so I give your thesis a tentative "+1" : )

Re: Forget everything else, the Internet is the worst thing to ever happen to mankind
agreed op

been thinking the same myself

back in the 90s, things looked so 'good'

ok, we knew there were some problems, but wtf, the weekend is nearly here, eh? cheers

weekends are the same as weekdays for me now.

constant searching.

i want to be ignorant again.

sick of being worried by every huge volcano going off, or every tsunami that hits, but I also know that something isn't quite right with the planet. something terrible is happening, in extreme slo mo.

it's wearing me down slowly, but as long as the net is up, i will do it, day after day. i know i will.

Yes, OP, many are on information overload.

"But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book
until the time of the end,
many shall run to and fro
and knowledge shall increase."
(Daniel 12:4)

Running to and fro could be our world travel which has dramatically increased and knowledge increasing could definitely be from the internet.

Before we had newspapers, magazines, TV but nothing has increased our knowledge as dramatically as the internet.

We have become a very fast paced people like no other time in the history of this world. And it is tiring us out.

Re: Forget everything else, the Internet is the worst thing to ever happen to mankind
i kinda agree. on one hand, i learn a lot dealing with my field of studies, hobbies and career through tutorials. also i i get to keep up with family and old/new friends easier and even find some that i haven't talked to in ages. i get a good source of entertainment on sites like Netflix for my documentaries and anime.... Now n the other hand, it's full of people spreading false, stupid ass, baseless information like the thread about jupiter igniting( lmfao - i mean really??? to much fuckin Peter Hyams movies - "2010: the year we made contact"- or somethin like that)so yeah on one hand, the internet is great, on the other hand, it's complete bullshit thanks to artards who just post whatever wild theaory that comes to their or their friend's drugged out or just wacked out brain.

I try to keep a good balance between the two extremes.

For example, I'm reading GLP, researching things for school, and looking at porn.

Balance is the key.

I think the internet is one of the best inventions ever. It hooks us all up and increases the knowledge. It must be a threat to TPTB, since they want to take it away from us...free speech!

Your problem is that you have poor judgment because of your insufficient knowledge. There are things you believe that you shouldn't, such as the nonsense that 9-11 was an inside job, and other things you should believe and don't.

So don't blame the internet for your own poor judgment and inability to prioritize information.

Re: Forget everything else, the Internet is the worst thing to ever happen to mankind
dear op, i agree with you that the internet is just another forum for those who want to share their own flavor of the EOTW. however . i come from a generation that predates the p c and even color tv. in those days [ i really sound like a geeezer here} most questions were answered by consulting outdated encyclopedias or visiting a library full of ancient tomes. hence the information available on the internet continues to be a wonder to me.
