On social networking
The world wide web connects all of us, at least with the amount allowed by nanny-state governments. I can find a friend in Korea, and share pictures with a buddy currently stationed in Afghanistan. I can find out my brother is engaged before I am even told in person. I can see who my 3rd grade science teacher went to see in concert last night. I can talk about about an actress’ ugly picture taken after arrests for methamphetamine abuse. I can find out how to donate to a group taking wheelchairs to sick or blind patients in far off continents. I can debate religious or anti-religious rhetoric.
…and so far, most importantly, I can still criticize my government.
