The more time I spend on the internet (which is too much if you ask my wife, and she's right) the more misanthropic I become. If it isn't reactionary responses filled with scatological language, it's vapidity on vulgar display. Then there are those posts, blogs, snippets, etc, that call evil good and good evil. I've a mind to dump my CPU in the Rouge. But then. . . how would I know what teenagers are bored because they've announced it on Facebook?
"Therefore whoever is not illuminated by such great splendors in created things is blind. Anyone who is not awakened by such great outcries is deaf. Anyone who is not led from such great effects to give praise to God is mute. Anyone who does not turn to the First Principle as a result of such signs is a fool.Therefore open your eyes, alert your spiritual ears, unlock your lips and apply your heart, so that in all the creatures you may see, hear, praise, love and adore, magnify and honor God, lest the entire world rise up against you." -- St. Bonaventure, Itinerarium mentis in Deum
