‘He who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool. When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise.’ Proverbs 10:18-19
Nobody is laughing at the foolishness of the social media mobs headlining our news cycles.
For three days now my social media news feeds have been covered with outrage followed shortly by truth, destroying the initial narrative but not receiving the same veracity of reposting. This really needs to stop. I am fully certain that this stuff can not be good for the actual psychological health of the young people in our world.
I can’t help but think that the next world war is going to start from a false story published on social media that is believed as truth and shared around the world. After the bombs fly for 24 hours the truth will be found, but only after the needless deaths of thousands.
No large propaganda machine will be needed. Only a few media types running with a fake story from possibly non-existent sources.
Do you think this is possible? Post your thoughts in the comments.
