Absolute Truths/ Social Networking Is Destroying The American Caste System; Part 1

February 7, 2009

“David is playing Yahtzee with his cat, since nobody else in the world cares whether he lives or dies.” This is an example of what would be considered a Facebook truth, which is uncommon, if not completely devoid in the world of social networking. Social networking is a façade, and an illusion; it is a haven for the rejected, it is a sanctum for the lonely, and it is a refuge for those who were, rightfully, tossed aside by the original social network called “reality.”

Social networks disregard the American Caste System, which begins in Elementary Schools across the country, where children who accidentally touched the smelly Pug-faced girl who picked her nose and ate it will immediately touch another child and yell “Mary Smith germs, BLACK-OUT!!!”

This caste system follows the “Mary Smith’s” through the entire education system and into adulthood. They were tripped in Jr. High, stood up on prom, and, perhaps worst of all, they are ignored during adulthood. These “Mary Smith’s” either sink or swim in adulthood; they learn from their childhood and take control of their adulthood or they remain a faceless, forgettable character in societies cruel novel. It is a grim, but necessary, reality, until … along came social networking.

Now, the Pug-faced girl, who still picks her nose and eats it, has an outlet where she can post a picture of a fairy with Vulcan ears and become friends with men and women who post pictures of themselves in the mirror flexing, or proudly displaying the obligatory cleavage picture. Mary Smith now has hundreds if not thousands of friends, who have no idea who she is, what she looks like, and has never communicated with; she collects them like the crazy lady in the dilapidated house collects cats.

Hilariously enough, these Prima Donnas who are now her social network friend are the same higher caste’s who treated the Mary’s of the world so poorly. These were the jocks and popular kids who, once the education system ended, turned into lonely, pathetic individuals who are desperate to relive their peak, which, sadly, was attained in High School.

These former higher castes are addicted and fill themselves with a false sense of popularity, reliving what once was. Social networking has prevented the evolution of the American caste system where a transformation occurs; the Mary Smith’s have the opportunity to take control of their life and become the higher caste, where the Prima Donnas fall from their imaginary pedestal and snap their neck on the pavement.

Which caste are you?

Check out next week where we research the difference between Facebook and Myspace; Myspace … the Rose Park and Roy of Social Networking.
