Ramblings of a restless mind

If common sense was that common we could be having our problems half solved. I mean it, really. I mean judging by the amount of stupidity that occupies our public spaces, especially since the advent of social networks. We have degenerated into narcissistic airheads who will do the most absurd things to be noticed. What drives this? It seems as if we have a hole in our souls that constantly need to be filled. We fill this by posting pathetic selfies on Facebook and Instagram, we say the most ridiculous things to hog attention, and we often say the meanest things to our fellow human beings. I sit here and think, when did ignorance become a point of view? Please tell me. Honestly...I need to know. In as much as social networks has revolutionalised the way we engage it has also become an albatross around our necks. Useless riffraff has become a cannon fodder across the cyberspace. LOL, TBT, Hahaha and LMAO had irritatingly become characteristics of our speech patterns. What happened to plain simple English?!
