Duncan Garner: Why we should all walk away from social media

As someone who doesn’t even own a cellular ‘phone and has never bothered with Social Media, I found this opinion piece from Garner interesting.

OPINION: Social media is a twisted, evil little pest that controls our lives, dominates our world and I am struggling to see the good bit.

by Duncan Garner, Newshub 26/3/19

It’s not helping us be better human beings.

I saw a guy the other day crossing the road attached to his phone, and cars stopped for him. Had they not, he’d be dead.

Social media isn’t teaching us or our kids how to communicate.

It dominates households, relationships, workplaces, the bus, the train, the car, the dinner table.

Its creep into our life is extraodinary – it’s a terminal illness eating us from the outside in.

Yes, we may be better informed, but it’s information overload.

We’re being force-fed a toxin or poison and it’s an addiction up there with other nasties, like cigarettes, drugs, sugar, and booze.

Social media’s global giants have been dragged into this Christchurch terror event. They have been more than just dragged into it, they’re front and centre. The technology failed. It’s why the PM met with Microsoft President Brad Smith. She wants change, but is it possible to wrangle the beast?

Facebook allowed a 17-minute video of the massacre to go out around the world. So much for social media keeping a check on itself.

Facebook’s response looked cold, twisted and out of touch.

These massive companies operating under the guise of social media operate above the law, in the cloud, pay as little tax as possible, and somehow corporate and social responsibility is for someone else…READ MORE

I have a lovely partner and 3 very active youngsters. We live in the earthquake ravaged Eastern Suburbs of Christchurch, New Zealand. I began commenting/posting on Uncensored back in early 2012 looking for discussion and answers on the cause and agendas relating to our quakes. I have always maintained an interest in ancient mysteries, UFOs, hidden agendas, geoengineering and secret societies and keep a close eye on current world events. Since 2013 I have been an active member of theCONTrail.com community, being granted admin status and publishing many blogs and discussion threads. At this time I'm now helping out with admin and moderation duties here at Uncensored where my online "life" began.

  1. Why shouldn’t the video be allowed? We televise illegal acts of war from all over the globe with little fuss. Kids and adults need to know the realities of the world we live in and be discussing the causes of it, maybe then our populations will start making choices that will truly make a better world.

    1. The reason we aren’t allowed to view the video is because of an agenda that has abandoned common sense and objectivity in favour of subjective realities referred to by the “new left” as “Narratives”. It is believed by them that by altering the “narrative”, one can alter the consensus reality (the objective reality that the majority agrees is real). So instead of exposing acts of evil and corruption in order to combat them, discuss them, seek ways of tackling the deep underlying issues and coming up with practical, intelligent means of making the world a better place, we censor them out. By censoring out anything that is at odds with their “narrative”, they believe it can simply fade into oblivion.
      This is why, when persons such as Jordan Peterson or Ben Shapiro speak at colleges and universities, the Social Justice brigade shout, scream, and chant: To attempt to blot out anything that challenges their subjective version of what constitutes reality.
      This, of course, is a very immature way of dealing with important issues. It is the reason common sense is no longer common, and ultimately, if this lunacy continues, no one will actually grow up. No one will learn anything through experience (the greatest teacher) and we will become the State-dependant human cattle that the NWO wants us to be.
      The greatest fear that the NWO Agenda 2030 players have is that we will “start making choices” as you stated. No choice on fluoridation, no choice on vaccination, no choice on how you receive news and information (yeah, they’re working on that!). What follows is that no choice will mean no opinion. No opinion leads to no free will. That is the future we face right now.
      I don’t want that future, and clearly you don’t either.
