TROM Poems – Social Media Prostitutes


Social Media Prostitutes
By Seb We live in a world with Instagram pics
of bodybuilders, boobs and butts. Billions are so hypnotized that they as well
wanna become such social media sluts. People are losing themselves in this digital
world of self obsession and vanity. More comments, likes, views and followers
reinforce people to further this artificiality. It glues millions of people to their devices. Submerging their minds & values into those
celebrities our culture aggrandizes. It seems like the dumber and
more self-centred you are, the greater your chances of becoming
such a social media star. Feeding people hyper-sexualized bodies
and absurd levels of wealth, is bound to threaten
everyone’s mental health. Feelings of arrogance and insufficiency
are reinforced so strongly, making so many think they are not good enough
and a few think that they are godly. But what can you expect in today’s
world of cold-hearted Capitalism. It is the system we live in and hence the structure
of these platforms that breeds this narcissism. Whether Facebook, YouTube,
Instagram or Twitter, most post mind numbing content just
in order to become bigger and bigger. Because the bigger you get,
the more money you will net. Yet, the more fake you will become, selling yourself for products
and higher income. It’s all about themselves: their hair, eyebrows,
muscles, jawline, ass and face. Rarely about others or the problems
we face as a human race. And if it is, it’s with no structural
understanding of today’s trade game. Instead their patchwork activism only addresses
the symptoms with the intent of gaining more fame. Some of these models even travel the
world to sell their skin and lifestyle, distracting so many to consume more
with their big superficial smile. We’ve created a culture where people’s sense
of worth is linked to their popularity online. Maybe it’s time we question this absurdity and realize that
our values and culture are in dire need for redesign. To understand more about a Trade-Free
world beyond social media prostitutes please check out Tromsite, The Venus Project
and The Zeitgeist Movement. Also, If you want to see more TROM contents
