The Age of Anti-Social Media (S1 Ep35)

Overthinking Everything with Josh Brandon

Jan 31 2023 • 1 hr

A history of the internet, the tech that led to us, and our place in the virtual space! #antisocial #nomophobia #internethistory In this video I talk about the history of the internet and the tech that led to it. I discuss how America was handed the keys to the connection kingdom before we were ready for that responsibility. I am making the case that America has NEVER been united and the dawn of the internet was basically giving a pre-teen the keys to the car, liquor cabinet, and the unlock code for all the parental control and saying "use your best judgement" without teaching them properly what that best judgement should be. Too Much, Too Soon and it leads to the Dumbing Down and Numbing Down of Society. OVERTHINKING EVERYTHING SERIES DESCRIPTION Overthinking Everything is essentially about exploring the Origin of the Idea. Why do we think the things we think and believe the things we believe? Using the Social Studies – History, Geography, Civics, and Economics. These are the basic foundations of Political Science. In OE, it’s Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology and Anthropology. It’s art & literature, science and religion, and current events and conspiracy theories. Exploring our opinions and ideas through these lenses may seem daunting, but it's not as difficult to understand, once we unplug, detach, and step back from the issue. But it's a journey of discovery we'll go on together, Overthinking Everything! In this first season, Deconstructing A Culture of Cultism, I'm exploring not only the Origin of Idea, but attempting to explain how easily we are led down the path to cultism. I'd like this series to be an exercise in perspective and training the brain to think critically. This season will explore many topics beyond politics and history. I am simplifying a lot of very detailed and nuanced events, but it's time we examine some of what we know from slightly different angles - angles maybe we weren't taught in school. I am Deconstructing my own journey through politics, religion, social change, education, capitalism, and more. As someone who has crawled out of the Toxic White Southern Culture, I'm here to tell you it isn't easy, nor is it pretty. BUT, it IS Fascinating!
