Digital Zombies: The Age Where Kids Dont Look Up, and Barely Go Outside Anymore
Teenagers and even young children today are addicted to playing video and computer games that were in their infancy when most parents were growing up. The draw of these games goes even beyond the pop culture entertainment that kept 20th Century kids glued to the television and 21st Century kids glued to the Internet.
Melissa and I spotted these angsty teens on a swing set at a local park. Not only were they too cool to actually play, but they were too cool to even talk to each other. Instead, all four were busy on their smart phones or similar digital devices.
Meme #1: Kids Fail at Playing Outside
Honestly, it wasnt all that shocking, since these types of disengaged people, of all ages, can be seen every day throughout society at shopping places, driving in cars, at public places, in schools and offices everywhere.
Its the kind of Zombie Apocalypse thats already been warned about in this well-circulated meme:
summary, when we fail to look around at whats really happening, we become very vulnerable to manipulation from the centralized propaganda outlet that comprises the shadow government with arms in official government, corporations, media, advertising, commerce, the food industry and much more.
Meme #2: Digital Zombies: predicted and programmed by computer scientists.
Heres a video Truthstream made a few months back when Melissa and I stumbled across this book called One Digital Day: How the Microchip is Changing Our World.
What effect will technology have on society? Well, weve already seen many of the effects
Our Human Emotional Bond: Disconnected and Out of Touch
This Chevy Silverado truck ad made specific appeal to the emotional bond that a typical Dad could have with his video addicted son through a forced but ultimately enjoyable and fulfilling outdoors camping and wildness experience (all made possible by the rugged-esque GM truck, of course).
Silverado: Convert A Father and His Son
This subtle, situational niche marketing gives an idea of the kind of problems the digital generation is having connecting with their parents, or with other human beings at all.
In a world under threat of being overwhelmed by technology, the average human seems very comfortable to be removed from society, and kept company by a litany of play things from smart phones, to iPads, to laptops, to handheld video games and big screen TVs at home and in hundreds of shops.
Humanity, it seems, has little issue with being economically displace and made useless and disposable.
Just look out for the whiplash of historical irrelevance and the neck-strain of looking down at digital devices for too much time.

The truth of it has many aspects and repercussions. First of all these things are engineered, advertised and portrayed in such a fashion that it is pretty much socially unacceptable to not have these devices and is specifically targeting young people below the legal age of working, preying on the parents. Any money making system, including governments, want kids using these devices as much as possible because the content is monitored and directed. This means they can direct opinions, collect more market data and pretty much any and all information on the subject including opinions and political positioning. Another reason governments are pushing this so much is because when kids are wasting their time on social media rubbish they are not thinking about the reality of what governments are doing at home or abroad, and these are the kids who will be running the country in a few decades so who wants them thinking about important stuff?! The more we normalise using these mobile spying devices, the more we numb future generations to the risks of losing their privacy to a totalitarian autocratic government (which is closer than it might seem). Remember, the same 'blanket spying' tactics were employed by none other than the Stasi (one of the most repressive organisations in history) and the KGB contributing to the fall of the USSR. Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana
