Your Phone Doesn't Make You Powerful
It's not the Magna Carta.
It's not the Declaration of Rights, the English Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence or the Declaration of the Rights of Man.
It's not poetry, a manifesto, or even a fucking blog entry.
It's not your college admissions essay, or your graduation speech.
It's a fucking phone company.
All it cares about is your monthly payment. You're right that it doesn't care how old you are, or what you have to say. As long as the check shows up on time, blather and text and Facebook and tweet away all you want.
If you want to make more of that than it is, I guess that's up to you.
But you are fooling yourself if you believe that your sad, empty life somehow becomes more valuable if you can put it on display for the online population. Because pointless bullshit that roams through your head does not become less pointless when a billion people can see it.
