Information overload is causing people to follow the herd and no longer take the time to completely analyze the facts before forming a conclusion. Gazillions of photos and excerpts of data are sent out daily on social media, at lightning speed, across the internet, which brainwash the world population into forming opinions based solely on very limited supporting evidence.

If readers just take the information that is given to them without question, than various agendas can be presented that are not necessarily in the best interest of society as a whole.

This will keep the attention away from how much wealth is being stolen. Lastly, social media sites are collecting a massive dossier on their users’ personal traits. This is extremely dangerous and is rapidly eroding individual freedom.
