Social media, selfies and narcissism
Can anyone think of a better example of how self-concerned and narcissistic we are as a people than the "selfie" ? You might think it's just women who take selfies. You're wrong. I've seen far too many guys showing off their "guns" and bodies with mirror pics and the like. There's the old saying "if you've got it, flaunt it." Well, people in the West love to flaunt it. And it's not just people who "got it," it's a helluva lot of people who don't and still are obsessed with themselves. I am disgusted by it.
Social media as a whole - facebook, twitter, snapchat, instagram.....they are nothing more than tools of ego assuagement. Look at MY body, look at MY vacation, look at the party I'M at, look at ME. ME, ME, ME AND ME!
I know the pieces fit cause I watched them fall away
