For Aaron: It is up to us!

My two memorable quotes from the film, aside from the whole thing?

You know, there’s sort of these two polarising perspectives, right? Everything is great, the Internet has created all this freedom and liberty, and everything’s going to be fantastic or everything is terrible, the Internet has created all these tools for cracking down and spying, and controlling what we say. And the thing is, both are true, right? The Internet has done both, and both are kind of amazing and astonishing and which one will win out in the long run is up to us. It doesn’t make sense to say, “Oh, one is doing better than the other.” You know, they’re both true. And it’s up to us which ones we emphasise and which ones we take advantage of because they’re both there, and they’re both always going to be there.

And one that should stop all of us on our tracks and make us ask if we are living the life we were born to live or just settling for the ‘Easy Button’.

What is the most important thing I could be working on in the world right now? And if you’re not working on that, why aren’t you?

And as is becoming custom, I end this post with advise from Alan Levine, years of psychological research boiled down to one classic comic:
