Facebook Brings Us Bread and Circuses
If Zuckerberg has anything to say about it, Facebook will soon usher the world out of the universe and into the metaverse. Why not? This punk, mid-thirties child has already dragged truth into the alley of disrepute, beaten it into submission and thrown it back out to the social mob he created. And, of course Zuck has everything to say about it, because he has complete and unfettered control of the largest social-media platform the world has ever known.
Abraham Lincoln said, “if you want to know the character of a man, give him power.” I have seen Zuckerberg’s character and am unimpressed. Yes, he is among the world’s richest men, but wealth is a lesser indicator of character than power. Any idiot can become rich, and many have.
Lincoln didn’t speculate on what happens when you give power to a child. But we are witnesses to that today, as we watch a child grab the keys to the family car.
