It seems like everything turns into such a political issue these days. Back in time politics was a great means to unite people, now it is surely the great divider. People are so uptight and on edge these days. On some of the current issues let me say, people will be human and that will never go away. People hate, people love, some people are of sound mind and some are clearly not, some people have a moral compass some do not. I could go on and on with that, but I will not. There are bad and good people in every race, culture and creed. Bad people kill people and they do it for countless reasons because they are bad or you could say evil. Getting over the politics of it is one way to curve that trend. My father was a native American born on a reservation. Our people were slaves and were slaughtered almost to complete extinction. There are now very few true native Americans left on the planet and guess what they were killed by black as well as white people. The race had nothing to do with it, they were killed by bad people it is that simple, bad people kill people even of their own race. The point is you could go on forever with, the black guy killed the black guy, the black guy killed the white guy, the white guy killed the white guy, the white guy killed the black guy and on and on. When a mom kills her children, was that do to race? The politics of today breeds hate and crime. So if you truly are concerned about it, and you want to do your part to help stop it, then get over your politics and get on with people. This is the reason that I love the on-line social media scene. Everyone here is just another person and here we are back to the basic level of self discovery and cultural appreciation. Regardless of race, culture, creed or wealth. ©® William J. Marsh
In many ways the internet with all the social media sites like My Space, Facebook, Fan Page and so on, has become less social, more secluded, allusive and a lot less personal. Everybody’s out there and on there just 5 minutes ago. You have all of those little pop-up messengers all private and or secrete. Of course you can set up to video chat, but that’s mostly one on one. There is so much information on search engines now, that it’s nearly impossible to get simply the answer that your looking for. Everything is a gimmick to get you where they want you rather than where you want to be.
Fifteen or twenty years ago we had good ol’ live chat rooms like ATT and AOL where thousands of people from around the world gathered live around the clock. You could count on crazy Betty to be in the woman’s gossip room at 6:45p.m. every night except Wednesday and the Dark Dragon would make there appearance in the fantasy room every night around 10:00p.m. You could flirt, argue, talk about your day, laugh “lol” you could cry, you could fall in and out of love and even get a private room. Everyone was right there with you live. You never saw any pictures or videos, but you got to know those people better than the people in your own family. You knew them so well that when they tried to hide and use a new chat name, you still knew who it was by the way they talked because their personalities still came through.
Now it seems as though everything is, just “so 5 minutes ago!” ©® William J. Marsh
This new age of social media is a wild, wonderful, sometimes risky but always an all so adventurous world. You can be anything or anyone or just be yourself. If your good at something or even just lucky, you can make it big. There is an audience for everything that anyone can imagine or dream up. You can learn anything you want or need to, or just have a lot of fun. You can fall in and or out of love forever or on a daily basis. Everyone seems to like everything. People seem to get along better on line than in person. One thing is certain once it’s on here there is no take backs. There is a lot of things posted on line that seems innocent at the time but could come back and bite you in years to come. It’s kind of like that spur of the moment tattoo, or that several drinks to many the night before you have an important day at work. The web is truly a place in the world where the playing field is equal for all, and anyone can get in the game. You do not have to be rich or pretty, you just have to connect. So happy net-trails everyone, let that inner you shine. ©® William J. Marsh
