We Don’t Need No Thought Control

I’m not too crazy about political memes on Facebook.

Why? Because a society where people can only communicate by echoing thoughts from an unknown source is a society that does not value original or creative thinking, and that, folks, is a society that is flirting with totalitarianism. Orwell 101.

Who really knows where these things come from, anyway? And why?

I’ve observed many of my friends, from both left and right, who post and repost a dozen memes or quotes a day. Some of them are funny, some of them are a little offensive, and some of them are truly ugly. I’m referring to the memes, not the friends.

Do you think any of that ever changes another person’s mind? Please, formulate and share your own thoughts and ideas. They are worthy. Believe it! You are worthy.

Our democracy thanks you. Is that an overstatement? Think about it.
