Privacy-Profound Experiences-Bob Davis Podcast 823

These days we live in a world where our first reaction to an amazing experience is to share it. Does sharing the intimate, profound and sublime degrade their value? Learn more in Privacy-Profound Experiences-Bob Davis Podcast 823.

Over Sharing

We’re talking about your shots from Coachella or Burning Man but also pics and posts from the hospital where grandma is dying. Rants about bad service from restaurants and crazy neighbors. Beat down videos on You Tube.

Intimacy and Privacy

Especially relevant are those sublime and sometimes profound human experiences. Intimate experiences. Is it possible that sharing those experiences cancels out the integrity of the moment? Find out why I say this in Privacy-Profound Experiences-Bob Davis Podcast 823.

What Is Special

Furthermore to be intimate is to be private. Certainly there’s a lot of talk these days about privacy. In contrast look at all the people taking selfies at that amazing concert, or taking videos at the beach at sunset or the Grand Canyon.

Ours Alone

What would happen if all these most noteworthy experiences remained ours and ours alone? I think we as human beings have profound and exceptional experiences, or witness these kinds of interactions all the time.

Friends Keep Secrets

Finally what do you call someone who keeps your secret? A friend. Can we keep our own secrets?

Our Unique Experiences Become Content

Above all our personal experiences shared out to social media, become the property of FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram or other platforms. By extension they become the property of the world. We lose the pristine nature of those experiences. We turn something unique and hard to define into a mass experience.

Restoring Integrity

In conclusion, I’m not saying don’t share at all. What I am saying is maybe we save some intimate experiences for ourselves, alone. And by doing so restore some of the integrity society seems to have lost.

Jussie Smolett-Fyre Fest-Burning Man-Lies-Reality-Bob Davis Podcast 808

These days they don’t teach kids how to tell what’s real and what is not. Adults don’t know how either. Consequently it’s hard to tell what’s reality and what’s a lie. We’ll talk about it in Jussie Smolett-Fyre Fest-Burning Man-Lies-Reality-Bob Davis Podcast 808.

Jussie Smollett

Most noteworthy is  the latest rush to judgement without critical analysis. The story of Jussie Smollett, actor and musician. Smollett received lots of support from the Speaker of The House of the US Congress and many other prominent democrats after he claimed to be the victim of a racially motivated attack. Growing evidence suggests Smollett’s story of what happened on the night of January 29th 2019 might not be credible.

FYRE Fest

Then there is FYRE Fest. Probably the most successful social media scam in history, FYRE Fest is the subject of two competing documentaries. Especially relevant are questions of credibility for both documentaries. What really happened with FYRE Fest? We may never know.

Are You Cool Enough For Burning Man?

My favorite punching bag is Burning Man. Promoted as a haven for artistic and personal freedom, it is anything but. In reality, Burning Man is a dictatorship. People are told how to act and what they can photograph. Tickets are almost impossible to get unless you’re Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk. Or you can gain the favor of so called local ‘burners’. Are you cool enough for Burning Man?

I’ll pass.

Fly Geyser Off Limits

Meanwhile the ‘non profit’ Burning Man organization purchased the Fly Ranch, home to the incredible Fly Geyser. Regular people used to visit the geyser. Not anymore. Burning Man owns it. You can’t see this wonder of the world unless you pay equality advocates at Burning Man.

Russia Today

Finally there is Russia Today or RT. Long known as a propaganda wing of Russia, people are dismayed to find them being deleted from the social media platform everyone loves to hate; FaceBook. Did we forget what the word ‘propaganda’ means?

FoxxConn and Festivals Lies and Damn Lies

In conclusion it doesn’t matter if it’s some silly festival or a Foxxconn plant in Wisconsin. Influentials only pretend to be ‘authentic’ and ‘truthful’.

I guess Grandpa was right. You can’t believe everything you read.

Actually, you can’t believe anything.
