Not really, Andrew. Observing the lineage of the internet, advertising, mainstream news and other seemingly unrelated events, one gleans a good look at where these are all heading.

The same complacency was attached to it, too: "God Himself could not sink this ship!" The question across the board here is: what is all the technology benefitting? Our lives were supposed to be made easier with all the conveniences, but why do we have less time? Why are we always drawn into distractions? What would we do without the internet?
There is no question that the internet has its benefits. And there is little arguement that Facebook has positive merits. My main concern is influence
; how is it influencing what you see, think, feel and act? I'm confident that if a person is brutally honest to the core of themselves, they'd acquiesce to the fact that these influences set what is "normal", and the "normal" being accepted is NOT acceptable.
Why is it I can go virtually anywhere and start flappin' my mouth about football, and it's received with enthusiasm. But go anywhere and start talking about the pineal gland or ascension and people put up barriers. We're spirits having a human experience,
not the other way around; we should be able to share spiritual insights anywhere we go...but that's not the case. This is by the influences
we have no control over, and cannot change, except within ourselves.
And accepting the unacceptable doesn't promote change in ourselves.
