"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

Facebook has probably divided more families and friends than living together. Why in the world to people air the dirty family linen on it?
Considering how worked up people got over the NSA revelations (I'd always figured they were doing a hell of a lot more than that, and still suspect they might be) you wonder why there is so little said about people surrendering their privacy voluntarily and other people giving theirs away on social media sites. This weekend, I heard of yet another family bitterly divided by it.
