Stay off Facebook, Bring Back Bullying + SM Review-Preview 47

I deactivated my Facebook months ago. It was almost 6 months off the Faceborg. I came back due to family requests, and my God what a wasteland. Whatever people were doing 6 months ago, that was already lame, is now even worse. I already started trolling, but that is not the point. People have completely given into that "I'm famous, I'm a star... if I repeat it enough."

We need to bring back bullying. This astute MPC fellow typed it before (he also called for populism to destroy our current elite), but we need to allow bullying. Bullying not only enforced social and cultural norms, it popped people's heads before they go to Kardashian level arrogance with no accomplishments. My sister has even fallen under the spell as she is now Julia Child crossed with Martha Stewart, but in all honesty, my mom and wife are both better cooks. Bring back bullying or else America turns into the 40 year old still thinking she fits into her Miss Teen USA swimsuit or the 60 second assassin who thinks he is a porn star.

Bring back bullying, get rid of Weimerica.

------------------------

Last week at Social Matter, I wrote on the ticking time bomb that is Nigeria. That country has massive problems already creating a migrant flow up to Europe, and if they have real fireworks, it will only get worse. Weimerica Weekly covered tiny houses. I actually like the idea, but it is a coping mechanism and symptom of our messed up housing market.

This week I will write on a process that may break up too big to fail banks without any regulation. I might make Weimerica Weekly about teachers who like to fuck students. There was one news blurb this week too demented and a cop gave me a rundown of what one sentencing was like.

"People have completely given into that "I'm famous, I'm a star... if I repeat it enough.""

This pretty much describes the mentality of every out-of-state transplant we get here in OC.

I had a Facebook account from roughly 2009-2011. I deleted it for privacy reasons. I just wasn't impressed. Just the other day, however, I created another one for trolling purposes.

I'm beautiful, look at me! Look at my flab, my ill-fitting clothes, my inappropriate posing, my grinning idiocy. Thanks Fecesbook for making me feel loved (and haters can't love, got it?)

I was on Facebook 2006-2008. Back in 2006 it was pretty cool - just pics of mostly attractive college kids with their interests and a posting wall, and nothing was private since it was a self-contained college bubble. Building up Facebook in colleges and slowly rolling it out elsewhere was a very good business decision; I don't if Zuck planned this out or just lucked into it since he was in college himself but it helped establish the monopoly.

I knew it was time to delete my account when moms of people I didn't even know that well started friend requesting me. Adults ruin everything. (The news feeds certainly didn't help either.)

I still have my Facebook. Since I'm in my late 20s, I see a lot of entries from young mothers whose priorities are not their kids but letting people know that she's still got it. She'll take a selfie with her toddler but she will dress just revealing enough to where you can see a lot of cleavage in the selfie shot, almost to the point where her child being in the picture is accidental. Now that it is June, lots and lots of bikini pictures. Some of them even talk about getting breast lifts now that they had their kid (I guess it's one and done for them). Their husbands are starting on their dadbods, developing a double chin, and maybe some facial hair to regain some of the masculinity that they lost in their teens and 20s. They're starting to look more and more estrogenic. Not to worry, they make up for it by having an encyclopedic knowledge on the NFL.

To add a Weimerica twist to it, these are now considered family pictures where their parents, aunts, uncles, etc. are liking and commenting on how their 28 year old niece is still a hottie even with two kids. Instead of going for a STEM career, I should have become a plastic surgeon. Even if Weimerica causes the standard of living to drop like a rock, there will still be no shortage of women who want to get plastic surgery so they can recreate being 20 years old for the rest of their lives.

Random Dude, THAT is the perfect description of young parents on Faceborg now. Great comment.

Keep lifting, keep posting.

There is a lot to be said for bullying. It's character-building. But no-one wants to build character any more. It requires effort.

To add on to my previous comment, while there is a lot of talk about millennials who are pushing off marriage and having children to later and later dates (if they ever go through with it), not enough attention has been paid to those who did decide to marry and have children in their 20s or early 30s. It's unfortunately a bad assumption that these young parents would be considered more traditional than their peers. In many instances it is almost the opposite because they feel they have more to prove that they're still every bit as cool and connected to pop culture and society than their childless, single counterparts, especially the mothers.

No Jewbook for me.

I'm taking a FaceBreak too. I might make it permanent. The Virtue Signalling by the SJWs (80% of my "Friends") was getting too annoying.
