Addicted to their phones

And then there are those people who are so addicted to Facebook, and to their smartphones in general, that they passively scroll through memes and ingest official-looking videos mindlessly for hours, not caring that they are neglecting their families, not noticing the dark and disrespectful degree to which their speech has sunk, not realizing what a parrot they’ve become as they repeat the conspiracy theories and the fearmongering and the hatred to anyone without earplugs inserted.

“I’m researching,” they say.

“I’m educating myself. I need to be informed so ‘they’ don’t come to my door to take me away.”

Wow.

Yeah, tighten your tinfoil hat there, Bud. If you have a wife, I doubt you will for long.
