Is Technology More Agonizing Than We Recognize?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

In the 1960s there was a Broadway play/show titled “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!” My late husband and I saw it—maybe twice? The title and play’s premise always stuck with me, but no more so than now during these current times of fake news, conspiracy theories, memes used to program social interactions, political issues and policies, and, especially, crooked politicians getting off scot-free while breaking the law and actually being ‘exonerated’ by federal authorities, who really should know better but probably were/are part of the ‘action’.

Even more specifically, though, there’s the apparently controlled mainstream media, which has a symbiotic relationship, including financial interests, in promoting huge corporations strategies centered in an almost quid pro quo ‘deal’ of paid advertisements that keep media outlets afloat.
