This is a particularly good example of the inanity of freedom of expression, never mind that of the author.
One, he doesn’t like Christians, and calls the Philippines ‘Christianabad.’ Such cheek. The religious of either left or right should mount a holy war to expose the Get Real folks as insult artists.
Two, he believes that FB, corporations, and religions are all the same crude banana. Maybe. Maybe not. But so what? Has he ever run a behemoth, or tried to deal with satanic cults?
Three, his solution to the predicament of FB users who upload bikini pics is to update privacy settings. Fat chance. No one really understands the privacy features of FB, or any site for that matter. Fine print is an automatic non-read. Still the only way to avoid exposure is simple: Wear a fig leaf or Just Say No. But we don’t do the latter because there is a nonzero value to FB users even if they now can’t quite capture the financial benefits.
Four, he thinks lawyers will be called upon to disentangle difficult social issues. And I thought the bard said we should kill the lawyers. I don’t know the solution but turning to lawyers and reading stuff from Get Real will get a nonthinking nobody nowhere.
Enough of blather. Bring in the censors. The site should be called We’re Unreal.
Disclaimer: My one regret, though an iffy one, is this post just might promote site traffic to Get Real Philippines. But it would have been worth it if just one reader gets saved from eternal intellectual damnation. Also, I side with the good sisters of STC on the original issue.
