Over the last decade we have seen the rise of social media, and a wholesale regression of communication.
The introduction of memes although comical at times has really seemed to impact our level of depth in communication.
In part it's easy. It's a shallow easy to digest image that allows us some measure of instant gratification while allowing us to state something with out actually formulating a statement/idea.
Personally I see our society slowly slipping into some bizarre scenario where we just point to images to explain what we like, and our ideas.(Idocracy)
I find it ever more alarming that several individuals don't even hold the idea presented in their ideology. It seems they don't actually hold any sense of foundation around any of these ideas.
What's your take?
Is this just a cultural phase?
Another rendition of the majority of general public lacking the caliber to formulate worth while opinions?
