12th Grade

I took this photo when my kids were starting 9th grade in high school at Back to School Night. Now they are in 12th grade. This is a good thing, but also terrifying, they grew up too much faster than I have.

I am re-reading one of the books I tried to read in college, Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle. It is quite relevant now with the current political situation in the world.

Are we all just providing content for the Internet as it gains sentience? Will it treat us like pets when it does? or consider us its property?
