Drowning in a sea of social media

If I’d stayed on task I’d be done by now.

I meant to spend the day packing.  Instead I spent the day on social media sites.

Again.

It’s embarrassing.

It’s frustrating.

I’ll never accomplish anything if I don’t take care of this problem.

I think it’s time to leave social media behind.

Bread and Circuses

Ancient Rome.

The Emperors.

Bread and circuses.

Free food and entertainment for all citizens.

Distracting them from society’s problems.

There’s nothing wrong with food.  We need it to live.

There’s nothing wrong with occasional entertainment.

The problem is constant distraction.

From what’s important.

From the slow erosion of our liberties.

We need to be careful.

Otherwise, once it’s obvious what’s wrong,

It will be too late.
