Yea I dont understand why anyone reads books anymore for any reason other than for posteritys sake. I can learn more about human nature and the world by opening up twitter, instagram, and wikipedia and thinking about each from different and critical angles. All of my notes and insights about modern society will be neo artistically placed in a series of twitter aphorisms, thoughtfully done ig pictures and snaps, and finally the bubulk of theory in a wikipedia article. I am the new artist

Why come to lit if reading isn't your hobby? What did you replace reading with?

I just stopped today. Even when you kick the habit you find yourself still surrounded with other users because that's the life you lived.

I tend to go for walks more and sit around doing nothing or do useful stuff, sometimes for other people. I also gave up other media.

My gaze when you're an uneducated moron who couldn't finish anything more than 10 pages.

Literature is more than just reading.
It's a conversation.

You don't learn anything by compulsively repeating memes on social media until you're only capable of a semi-conscious state.
Rather, you become the lesson.

>> No.7980674

No I think it's superficial because the people who use it are superficial. It's all they know.
