the LIKE ME! generation

the LIKE ME! generation
© Farouk Asvat

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

     The LIKE ME! generation: - is it narcissism, vanity, or just a terrific lack of self-esteem?  

     And it is not only individuals who want to be liked, but also major corporations and multinationals. 

     In society, anyone who insists on being liked, would be considered rather strange - it would display a complete lack of dignity.  

     Narcissism, the excessive preoccupation with oneself, must be the ultimate conceit.  Psychologically, it is tantamount to a grandiose view of oneself, one's looks, one's talents (if any), or one's accomplishments, with an unhealthy craving for admiration. 

     This vanity, this self-preoccupation, this need for approval is ultimately self-centred and selfish. 

     (And selfies are just an obvious extension of this phenomenon.) 

     This need for 1 million or 1 billion views is just another manifestation of the imbecilic pursuit of the lowest common denominator - there is nothing original or individualistic about it.
