Illiteracy is 140 characters long and has a face-book;
Everyone has a thousand virtual “friends”, but virtually no real friend;
Every child has a mother and multiple fathers, but no parents;
Knowledge is a matter of opinion and opinions a matter of fads;
Our idols sport muscles and vocal cords, but little else besides;
The right to vote is universal, but the will to vote is not;
Everyone has a right to free speech, but little of value to say;
Extramarital sex is considered recreation and monogamy a throwback;
The only ideology is self-gratification and collectives are mere dim
The only certainty is uncertainty and the only permanent fixture is change
(for change’s sake);
Obsolescence is the driver of innovation, but science, art, and literature
As men and women lose their traditional roles, confusion and inter-gender
enmity reign. In a unisex world, homosexuality, or sexual abstinence are
rational choices. As malignant, narcissistic individualism is on the rise,
the species is dying out. In many countries – including major ones such as
Japan, Russia, and Germany – the population is declining precipitously. More
than one third of the youth of these places opt for celibacy and singlehood.
Sperm counts have plummeted by a whopping 70%.
We are in the throes of vanishing.
