Social Media is the most powerful form of communication known to mankind. We can choose to use social media constructively with words of encouragement, or like Katie Hopkins, destructively with words of despair.
Social media is taking the first steps towards a real humanity. It has energy, driven by human power. It has the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
And to make happiness.
Facebook screams at injustice. Twitter cries at barbarism. Snapchat weeps at unkindness. That’s why social media is our human right. It’s the here and it’s the now.
To deny people the right to social media is to reduce their right to humanity.
Put it like this…
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
Albert Einstein once said that it had “become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”
Really? Has it? Social media is taking the first steps towards a new humanity. It can save our Mother Earth.
We can no longer put our trust in politicians because they fail to help us see the common humanity in others. Their stylized circumlocutions can only make our fellow man seem ridiculous or irrelevant: They never talk about what is really going on.
It’s now up to us…..THE PEOPLE.
Welcome to the fifth estate… press play.
