It’s starting to look like some weird cult
Since I wrote this in 2015, and re-posted it two years ago, I seem to be seeing even more people with cellphones pressed to their heads, or peering intently at other hand-held electronic devices (https://leeduigon.com/2015/06/02/so-what-are-you-doing-with-your-life/).
The main question is: If you’re going to bury yourself in media for 12 hours a day, what about the content? How much filth and weirdness can anyone consume without it affecting his soul? I mean, if somebody tried to get you to listen to sermons for 12 hours, you’d never stand for it…
I don’t have any of those doodads so I don’t know what people are looking at or listening to.
It sure stops the conversation, though. I’m convinced there are people out there who are so deeply immersed in media, they never talk at all.
