“Crapitalism” is alive and well on Facebook

I’ve been on Facebook barely a week now, and I’ve received no less than 24 invitations to “be my friend” from people who either want me to buy their porn (that group accounts for over 2/3s) or they have a business proposition for me. One thing they all have in common is that they are all from pretty young things in their 20s, from “the United States.”

Just so you know, I report them all as “abuse”.

It makes you wonder though. First, why do we almost always try to use sexuality to sell stuff? (Or, am I the target of these because I’m a middle-aged male, and women get a different slant? I’ll find out soon enough I suppose, as my beloved Ceridwen is going to be joining Facebook later on.) 2nd, why do they think everyone wants to see their skin?

As a naturist, I have developed some theories on that, but in fact I really don’t get it. If I want to see nude bodies, I just have to go to my local naturist club for a few hours. But you know, everyone looks the same – it’s their personalities, their souls, that make them different and unique and interesting. Once you take away the clothing and the makeup, a woman looks like every other woman. It’s the soul that shines!

You see, I believe that we are all God. So each individual is a God or a Goddess. Each individual is a part of our Holy Mother Earth. This is easier to grok when one is naked with others. Naturist centers must look like Mount Olympus. Everywhere there is beauty! From the natural environment many of these centers are set it, to the people themselves, the God within shines forth! We are all equals, seeing each other and accepting each other just as we are, for who we are, based upon character, not what our bodies look like.

What if this all caught on? What if just one part of this, naturism, became the common paradigm? Much would change in our society. The Porn industry would be dead (since the Xtian paradigm that nudity=sexuality would become a joke). The fashion and cosmetics industries would be victims as well (clothing itself, as a utilitarian industry would remain, since we still have to deal with such issues as the weather, and with industrial safety). Advertising would have to become a lot more creative, since nudity would no longer be a sexual stimulus. Cosmetic surgery? Plastic surgeons would no longer be able to make a living at that, although some operations would still be performed for accident victims and the like.

And that’s just the tip of the iceburg. It also explains why Capitalism, in the guise of religious morality, wants to keep nudity confined to the bedroom. But, as long as nudity and sex are intrinsically tied in the common man’s psyche, sex will be used to sell products, porn and female exploitation will remain pandemic, and Facebook and other online communities will continue to be plagued by these “spam”acites.
