You tell me.
Memes today aren't even well thought out or even funny and creative.
Nowadays media just wants you to comply to something they make the way they want you to, proving you're mindless. That's called PROPAGANDA! IE: Every time someone posts amogus or any unfunny photo edit (especially Redditors), they expect you to laugh because they arrogantly think you're an unsuspecting 5 year old. They take the pride boasting at your misfortunate response.
Call me a snob, but the same thing has happened to music: people used to sing country about wanting to turn back time, rap for a change in society and the government, and scream death metal to express their oppresion and depression. NOWADAYS untalented celebrities just want to sing mumble rap as a way to arouse ladies and boast about how rich and famous they are, or just piss off the media by "rapping" one word repeatedly on an instrumental. I don't see evolution, I don't see change, what's happened to the hearts of change before?
Onto the main topic: Even though we now have media apps like Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, etc., the state of humor has devolved into what was well thought out jokes and relatable tropes and references in media, has now become a doppelganger wasteland consisted of pornography and fake emotion! God only knows when this reaches to an extent where everybody is forced to think for others but not for themselves, THIS IS WHY REPOSTERS EXIST and original content (espescially on YouTube) is hard to find. Even so, these media apps are now rejecting truth and original content and are leaving their users stuck in a desolate, never-ending circle of broken yesterdays till no one can think.
All I'm saying is that humor is being depreciated and mistaken for lust and false prides and confidence (which is ALSO WHY WE HAVE TOXIC USERS), and we need to try harder and stand up from the darkness if we can finally make our ancestors and previous generations proud.
Don't let an ignorant majority decide who you are and what you must do to make them happy, but consider what lies in your heart's content. Is it worth it?
