A SHATTERED WORLD

A SHATTERED WORLD
© Farouk Asvat

     "I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. 
       The world will have a generation of idiots." 
          ● Albert Einstein

     We now live in an etherealised, shattered world - because of computers and the internet.  The global village is a myth, when the family living next door is starving. 

     We already began living in a fragmented world in the 1990's; this soon became a fractured world by the 2000's; and now the world is completely shattered. 

     People were already beginning to strive for materialism and conformity in the 1980's; this deteriorated to people striving for mediocrity by the 1990's - and now the world has progressed to people striving for stupidity. 

     It is a world where computers have become more human[ised] and humans have become more computerised - their electronic gadgets having become extensions of themselves. 

     People have the idea that they are in contact with more people across the world, but they actually have less people to talk to, or confide in. 

     People have the illusion that they know more, but they only have superficial notions of many inconsequential things directed by the mess media, including microsoft, google and yahoo 'news'.  They glide pass images and words, like the numerous screens they flip through - and so they glide by friends and acquaintances, deleting actual friends from their memory in an instant. 

     Of the 5,000 friends people have on facebook or linkedin, who will give them a glass of iced water on a hot day, let alone a plate of food or a place to sleep, if they are hungry or homeless?
