I don't know exactly what part you might be interested in.

Here are three books I found of value.

The Law by Bastiat. Very quick read, written in 1848 as a response to French socialists. Better and as appropriate or more so today than it was then.


The Creature from Jekyll Island by Griffin. The how and why of the federal reserve. It wasn't established for you or me.


Hologram of Liberty by Boston T Party/Kenneth Royce

How the constitution co opted the Articles of Confederation and led to the leviathan we have today. Also very readable.

I'm sure others will have better recommendations.

I've never read most of the books such as Behold a Pale Horse.

Mostly because I don't really need any evidence to see that the world is run by and for a relatively small group of people.

Fingerprints of the gods by graham Hancock!
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
I've been online hours a day since age 6, back in 97.
Literally most of my childhood memories center around the internet, I've seen in change, been there to experience.

What a strange era in history we're all participating in.


I really don't know what to do, I think I'm going to go to bed now.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
What it is doing is decreasing the attention span from hours to very few seconds.

We did more thinking back in the day and contemplation.

The thoughts have become faster and the isolation higher.

The need for information has also increased and I believe this has affected our nervous system to one of anxiety and higher speed.

While we are much more aware and connected to information around the world, it has isolated real human contact more than ever before.

Were we go from here, I guess we will see. It might not be too good if it continues this way, unless something gives and we can somehow disconnect again to stay connected, know what I mean.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
I am in older and did not get involved in the net until about age thirty.

Take it for what it is

INTERACTIVE REAL TIME TELEVISION

and just like tv, walk away from it now and then and read a book, have an in person conversation, or just wander outside.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
Internet reduces concentration dramatically, that I can say from sad experience

I'm as old as your grandparents. I noticed what internet was doing to younger family members, i.e., made them impatient, to begin with. They were so accustomed to everything being at the end of a click. Waiting for anything, even a two minute conversation was sufficient to make them irritable, dismissive

Made them anti-social to a degree and shrank their real life conversational skills. Real people in the flesh were also treated dismissively - they weren't considered as 'real' as virtual people

Internet appeared also to have a depressive influence

It's addictive, because it rewards for very little effort, whereas real life demands more than a click and 'lol'

Took more than 15 years, but some of those younger family members finally saw what effects internet had had and was having on their lives, attitudes and personality. Now those particular family members drag dozens of books home from the library. Internet is restricted mainly to youtube hobby content, because it is a great way to learn a craft with lots of tips from people with decades of experience in their field. But for relaxation and in order to restore previous good concentration levels, those family members are returning to books

Some people, maybe those who're more aware and self-aware seem now to be making the effort to get themselves and their lives back from internet


So I applaud this thread

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
I've been thinking about getting rid of mine lately. I don't need to read another story to tell me politicians are corrupt or that the world is going to hell in a hand basket. I already know that.

So essentially I'm wasting my time here.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
I've only had Internet for 3 years. Finally got a lap top and learned how to use it. I'm 50.

Been coming to Glp for a year. its changed me dramatically in alot of ways. Some good. Some not so good.

I am turning off my computor at the end of April. I got rid of my TV 5 years ago. I have never owned a cell phone.

You have no Idea how much you get done and how much your real Imagination comes back to you when you loose Technology.

I only came to Glp for the 2012 doom and to see what was going on out in the World cause I had a bad feeling. Now I feel bad all the time. I am done at the end of April. I think we are all done by then anyways.

Computer adds to 666 in certain gemetria I hear.

It's tainted by definition just like pretty much everything else here in this plane.

Plus, you can't share information without sharing sin.

Bottom line, porn and the internet come together, just like bomb building information and all kinds of shit.

Paper did the exact same thing, this just grows much quicker with smaller effort.

The internet just isn't going last forever.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
When you feel like this it is meant to be an alarm in your head that says "go be by nature, and just sit."

Any nature will do, water/forest/jungle/desert, whatever you got, sit in the city park if you have to.

Might sound stupid but just try it and see. Give it at least one hour, but two or more is better. You might get an antsy boredom feeling at first, but that should be gone within 15 min.

Re: I am starting to hate the internet and I think it is making me sick
Long ago and far away
In a different year on a different day

The skies were blue and clouds were white
We knew what was wrong and did what was right.

We became distracted and easily entertained
And ignored the earth as it cried out in pain.

While our resources were destroyed our amusements were employed
We came to realized we floating like buoys.

Right and wrong became a hazy line
But we convinced ourselves all was fine.

Til it became clear
That anything gained was now lost
And we didn't have the fortitude to pay the cost.

We could change it though
If we join together and let it grow.

This guy is right, you are (probably subconsciously) trying to re-connect with nature. Take a trip to your local state park and spend a day hiking or whatever. Bring some supplies though, better safe than sorry.
