Always Quitting Facebook

Quit Facebook. Eliminate Instagram. Systematically remove your presence from the blogosphere. Say hell no to the NFL. Foreswear Twitter forever and ever. Deny the New York Times. Depart with joy from Google Plus. Repudiate every must-read book. Gleefully cancel thy subscriptions to Audible, Netflix, and the damnable HBO Go. Never go near the Gawker vortex again. Cast Youtube into the outer darkness. Delete your Tinder from the face of the earth. Turn your back on the cineplex. Say fuck you to the CNN. Reject in gladness the slough of Pinterest. No more will you scroll Tumblr’s ladder of vacuity. Never mind the zeitgeist and ignore the cultural mood. Spotify does not have your free will in its best interests. Throw your TV from the roof. Toss your iPad from the train. The social network is fallacious. There is no document of civilization which is not at the same time a document of barbarism. Entertainment is the enemy.
