    It might be comedy.. But theres truth..

    ?Selfie? is piece-of-shit society?s Word of the Year

    Really.. 'selfie' is the word of the year (that part isnt comedy)... As a society, this is what we are becoming..

    BBC News - 'Selfie' named by Oxford Dictionaries as word of 2013

    It was that or twerk... Or a term for synthetic meat.

    Am I the only one who thinks..

    I hadn't even heard of it until a couple of weeks ago when a new friend on FB used it.

    Selfies are just as bad as Instagram foodie photos you've talked about before. Both done by complete plebs, and asian chicks

    I dint care about the act much.. But it being celebrated as word of the year does make me cringe..

    The same as reality tv, celebs who are famous for being famous, the vacuous state of entertainment etc..

    In the book I mention, he coins a term "moral entropy" that I think sums up the entire sphere that bothers me very well.

    I admit to having a bit of a fascination with social trends the last few years.. K-Waves, another superb (and scarily accurate considering when it was written) book called the 4th Turning, etc etc..

    Immoderate greatness is sort of short.. But it just rings so true is so many aspects many that link to a form of 'entropy' (ecology, resources, moral decay, a loss of ambition / goal / guide in social mindsets) its one of those ah-ha type feelings reading it.
