“I’m quitting Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr,” Essena O’Neil wrote in a final post. “Deleted over 2,000 photos here today that served no real purpose other than self-promotion. Without realizing, I’ve spent majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance.”

Before deleting her account, O’Neil edited the captions on several photos to show what was really happening in the snapshots, revealing that a beach bikini photo actually took more than 100 attempts “trying to make my stomach look good,” and that she “would have hardly eaten that day.”

On a photo of her posing in a sexy white gown: “NOT REAL LIFE – I didn’t pay for the dress, took countless photos trying to look hot for Instagram, the formal made me feel incredibly alone.” [1]

Try to read those boring philosophy posts once in a while.

And you will discover simple but universal truths.

No, you do not need that Lamborghini.

No, you do not need to fuck all these women.

All you need is a smile.

(OK, and some slapping before that, so that you forget the Lamborghini and the women)

Congress will investigate if CIA has given unauthorized access to classified material to the creators of the film Zero Dark Thirty, concerning torture practices used to extract information. (1) Genuine art is rare. Most of the times, art serves the ones in power. And once more, films of Holywood try to make us used to things like violence, torture, violations of human rights. And they will succeed. Unless we deliberately choose NOT to see this movie.

It may not sound as philosophy, but it is. And of the most important kind: the obvious is always easy to forget.

Yes. TORTURE IS NOT GOOD!

And watching is the first step towards accepting it.

Ghandhi said it elonquently:
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
