“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana
Watch out for Facebook. I know it sounds a little strange, but stranger things have happened. When I saw this poster, I could not stop from thinking about all the old propaganda posters from WW2. Back in those days, they had no problem trying to brain wash you with a poster.
It is eerily similar on how people will blindly play these silly games on Facebook. I mean Farmville, has to be one of the funniest games on the net. People sit around doing VIRTUAL farming. Not any real kind of farming, but farming on your computer.
Can’t you see it people? First it is farming, then it is virtual tank building. Before you know it, you are building nuclear weapons and plotting to take over the world!
Actually, this sounds like a fun game. It sounds like the typical day for Dick Cheney. I think Facebook needs to make a game based on Dick Cheney, that is similar to Grand Theft Auto. But on a global scale, with nuclear weapons, and lots of shotguns. There will be plenty of action, and a little bird hunting.
Seriously, we need to keep a close eye on Facebook. In the not to distant future, they are going to take over the world. Before you know it, they are going to make some robots to destroy us all!
Maybe not the robots, but they are going to keep on becoming integrated into our lives. At some point people are going to let them implant devices so they can check their Facebook status at any time. No need for a phone or computer to check in. You can “think” about it, and it will happen. Before you know it, there will be a massive privacy invasion, and Facebook will download your brain. I am sure that was Zuckerberg’s plan from the beginning…..
