Anybody ever see the movie They Live?  It is kinda a cornball action-comedy from the 1980s, but it has some social commentary in it and is worth a watch.  I feel like the movie was somewhat prophetic, but in reverse.  When I last had my real job I use to take the Bay Area subway into SF daily.  Sometimes I'd look around at everyone on their devices.  Not being on one was like having a superpower of presence and observation in a realm full or techno-zombies.

If you are going to spend some time looking at those pics you should read the about page.

RC, your link is powerful and dark.  Humanity has had the ability to remove the right side for a long time now.  The good news is that it is getting better.
