"In some respects, I think that the police force is a really brilliant way to keep people in the power to keep the working class divided from another. You basically take two people who have the same life experience, but you give one a gun and a badge and you tell him that he’s better than the other and that it’s his job to keep track of the other guy’s behavior."

Starting tomorrow I’m going to implement what I will call “Unplugged Sundays” which is one day a week during which I don’t spend any of my waking hours looking at a screen. Most hours of my days are spent staring at a computer, a TV, or some other electronic device - in part because of my job but also from pure habit - and I fear that it’s taking a very real toll on my cognitive abilities and general health.

Thinking back to when I was living in London two years ago and didn’t have the technological “luxuries” that I have now, I resorted to doing most of my work the old-fashioned way, with hard copies of reference books and a notebook instead of a laptop with an open word document. It was rather freeing, sitting in a café writing without feeling so attached to this electronic monstrosity that I carry with me everywhere now.

I don’t consider myself to be anti-technology or anti-modernization, but I do find the dependency on electronics we as a culture seem to have adapted to reasonably quickly to be rather terrifying. Choosing not to partake in it one day a week doesn’t seem like much, but I expect it will give me perspective on just how addicted to devices I’ve become. If the phone rings, I’ll answer it, but sitting at my computer to respond to emails and then walking across the room to pick up my phone to aimlessly scroll through all my social media apps is something I absolutely need to fucking stop doing.

When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine — an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more.
