Do we really need this much information?

Factions and influences.
The decisions we make and the lies we let,
to ourselves, our loves and our hidden thirsts.

Which side are you on? How much do you long?
To be free of belonging. To be uninfluenced, fluently.
Stop. Think of the garbage around.

Like “surround sound”, we let our voices drown.
In the market place of ideas- more (spider)web than highway.
A world wide mesh of anonymous influences.

Have we ever been this connected?
In history, has there ever been such a time?
That a single individual, behind a keyboard and a hidden address, could cause so much pain without restraint.

Or such a time, that a soothing tweet could stop your tears?
Or a heartfelt post resonate from China to Bambili.
Never has a quote been able to dish the right dose of dopamine.

Have we ever been this connected?
Multiple factions: #IAMXXX. #BRINGBACKOURXXX, #NOTOXXX
So much noise. So much content.

Will the Asimov  be right?
Will AI take over? Will Aliens attack?
Or… are we in The Matrix?

Stop. Think of the garbage around.
The good garbage.
And the bad garbage.

I don’t think we need so much information to start.
In fact, I purport that excess of it is the problem.
