Should We Cancel The Internet?

Perhaps it’s time to shut down the world wide web.

By Crystal Vase

Here's the parodical argument... computers should be banned 'cause the hard drives are called slave devices connected to their master controllers.

The entire legacy of modern technology is tainted by its history of promoting white supremacy and must be dismantled then replaced. It's not redeemable. Changing a few words and phrases here and there won't suffice. There is no more widespread form of institutional racism than the world wide web. Every key stroke you make sends messages through an apparatus reinforcing its driving mandate.

Oh, sure some might say "SATA drives (the modern connectors) don't use slaves and masters. That's old IDE technology."

But you know that can't stop the corruption from bleeding forward into everything it touches. Everything today is built on what was there yesterday. Technology touches everything. Pushes its insidious agenda into the unsuspecting audience reinforcing that unconscious bias. So long as this unaddressed evil persists there can be no peace. All the good the internet has done pales in comparison to the harm its colonialist roots inflict by its very continued existence.

It's far too problematic to fix. Shut it down! The internet is promoting whit - -ack - -gurgle.....

They can try to silence us but we know the truth don't we... that everything you see around you was invented by someone employing a tool of racial oppression. The divine authority assumed by the technological elite is a narrative... a vocabulary designed to keep you in the thrall of colonial dependence. The internet is a church demanding worship and we are the sacrificial lambs.

Free exchange of ideas is just a trick to draw you out so they can... and this is really disgusting... sell you stuff. Gross. Imagine the depravity of these sick bastards thinking they can smear your day with deals and promotions. While you simply wish to be left alone they're always there waiting for you to show up.

The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that uses the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to communicate between networks and devices. It is a network of networks that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), electronic mail, telephony, and file sharing. - Wackypedia

They collect your data and claim it improves their services but it's just another cash grab. Just another exploitation of the user who really is the source of all the value. Maybe you didn't make the service or pay for it, but you deserved it. You're entitled. They owe you for their very existence. Without all those websites being served by million of people (not you of course but hey it's the principal of the thing) for all these decades there'd be no internet for big data to exploit.

Cut the cord. Cancel your internet subscription. Take that money you save and spend it on books. Educate yourself so you're ready to cancel the next enemy we identify for you. Forget Assface, and Gaggle. Get off Twatter, and LinedUp. They exist only to keep you down. Wackypedia is a front for the man normalizing his toxic masculinity. Chop off your balls and break free!
