If Facebook Were A Box Of Old Photographs

One thing Facebook has in common with old-school capitalism is the immoral idea of making money no matter what the social or political or human cost. There’s really nothing new here in the treachery caused by greed. What’s new is the magnitude of the advertising lie and the fact it was based on selling nothing physically tangible to people, just mostly generic “likes” or, to put it another way, fleeting moments of temporary acceptance. That’s hardly worth the demise of democracy.
