As time goes on, humans evolve intellectually but unfortunately strange new disorders are also likely to surface as a side effect of our changing behaviors and processes. Today, the Internet has become a staple of our modern lives, intertwined in our activities at home, work and on the go. However, the web is still in its infancy and has only been around for over two decades, just a fragment of time compared to the history of mankind. So it’s not surprising the effects of the web on our society are still playing out, and an alarming recent development has set citizens of the interweb affray.
Recently a secret government spy program called PRISM was discovered, that monitors our activity online and on our smartphone usage. What used to be a free forum to exchange and discover ideas anonymously, is all of a sudden under constant surveillance. Now Internet surfers are starting to second guess every move they make online, as if the NSA really cares about watching them! But what if they were? Could this new PRISM anxiety disorder turn into a full blown epidemic? What if the NSA decided to post a comedy section in their newsletter, detailing the greatest hits of all of our stupid and hilarious web history?
