A few days ago, I felt the need to express the highly negative feelings I had towards the “machines” in general, including the tools and features they provide which to me seem to be replacing the real value and depth of overall human relationships and communication. Therefore, I wrote an article on my personal blog entitled “Down with the Machines”.
Since this topic is greatly correlated with our overall theme here at Thoughtpick, we decided to reblog it here and share it with our fans and readers. Enjoy!
This crazy trend of using “machines” in order to fulfill almost every aspect of our daily lives is becoming highly annoying and rather ridiculous! May they be computers, playstations, phones, cars, or any other electricity or fuel consuming, time wasting, people separating devices, the machines are taking over us!
Mountains, oceans and distances can not separate us, but machines certainly can!
And whatever it is we want to do, the “machines” are always part of any plan!
The phones will keep ringing, mostly delivering the bad news like a crow of morose,
People tracking you down and whatever you do, wherever you go, someone knows!
Then there’s the time set aside for games and the precious time we so ignorantly spend,
Forgetting the fact that every second broken you will never get back; you can never mend!
Our reality now is built on nothing more than e-mails, phones and other Internet tools,
Ignoring emotions and feelings, twisting, crunching and bending all humanities’ rules!
Shame on me if I stand still when I see this world being dominated by “machines” and so!
Down with the machines I say, speak up, speak out, allow for the reality of who we are glow!
