|The Age of Light is Upon Us|
Human beings using social media have increasingly discovered the delights of stretching the limits of reckless anonymity. Anonymity. The marginal propensity to hide in cyberspace while allowing one's self the careless use of four-letter 'words'.
The fact is, wanton, reckless, and at times, --
Is it inserted to attract attention, or assign instant importance to jaded, insecure or pathetic lives? Does it enhance stature, relevance, or draw an audience to the previously ignored?
I don't know.
Perhaps the status quo is a sign of collective societal insecurity. Immaturity. Inability to distinguish between foul potty mouth and actual communication. Is this a dearth of parental teaching?
I have to be honest, from the point of view of a writer, it seems like deterioration of civilization itself. It seems we are, unfortunately, at a crossroads; Perhaps people are blissfully and totally unaware of the effect of scribbling, keyboarding, or texting chopped, deviate combinations of words, whatever be the method or the message.
It seems at times that nobody cares about what they are exposed to, or what the effect of such unmitigated, liberally applied and questionable values of filth may have upon their children. The true long-term effect will not be seen in civilization for some time.
I'm guessing our tasteless melange of social media and rudimentary foul language ultimately will inflict a cost.
Where does "potty mouth" originate from on social media sites like Facebook? Have traditionally taboo, detestable, four-letter invectives become fashionable? The associated symptoms are easily spotted. Hedonism. Jaded narcissism. Warped, over-the-edge humor. Commandeered language and blatant ignorance.
Does Potty Brain not recognize that " Potty Mouth" reflects directly upon character, person, background, parents, upbringing, nature, essence, the very spiritual being?
From strictly a human standpoint, in simple terms, which part of 'a foul mouth suggests a foul mind' is so hard to understand?
It seems it takes little to destroy one's image. It takes no practice at all to foam off at the mouth in a rude, crude interlude and begin sliding into that stinking morass; it is deceptively easy to succumb.
For the last couple of years I have been curtailing my thoughts on this distasteful aspect of social media, zipping the lip. I cannot tell a lie though. In truth we....are not impressed.
There are always better ways to express sentiment.
Go ahead, do feel free to speak as you will. Here's the plan. Use whatever language you wish; the English language is changing, but...for the record, --the reward, justice at its finest; the full chamber-pot --is hanging high above us by the proverbial Damoclean thread. Will it be your next 'word' or thought that breaks the thread?
Think about it.
Is that Incoming I hear?
