The Best Laid Plans
Posted by Baker Street on Tue, 21 Mar 2017
Social networking is like a mousetrap. It is a mousetrap of public opinion. The mousetrap itself is the reaction that you might expect from the public when you say something wrong. The bait or cheese is your own ego. This might have something to do with racism, hate-speech or prejudice, or perhaps even crime. Your ego lures you to this irresistible and fatal end; it is like a piece of cheese to a rodent. When the trap shuts closed it is a sudden and horrible fate. All your previous allies and the whole of the public will turn against you. This is a universal and timeless truth and it is applicable to all men. Think before you ink; and don’t be lured by the ultimate bait – your own ego. Easy does it.
