A Snark About Snarky Snark And Snark
There's something to be said for those who give into pop culture hype and hysteria. There's something else that can be said about those who give into the pop culture snark frenzy that follows. There's also something that can be said about those who complain about those who snark about those who give into pop culture hype and hysteria.
Do you really want to sit and talk about Syria? Do you really? We elect people who create entire bureaucracies to sit and talk about Syria. If you want to talk about a troubled girl who embarrassed herself on live television, be my guest. If you want to talk about those who constantly talk about people who talk about people who embarrass themselves on live television, be my guest.
If you want to talk about Syria, or Egypt, or Sudan, become a diplomat. Become a missionary. Become a leader. Otherwise, you're just noise.Out of all of the noise that can be made it's probably the worst noise. If there's a group of people who need to talk less in this loud, fattening social media feeding trough, it's the armchair diplomats. If the world's an inferno and you feel you can fix it, do it! The time for talking about serious world issues ended six thousand years ago.
