Anything changes?

Media teaches me everything.
It is the antonym of ignorance.

I love it insanely.
But as I explore media more frequently and deeply, it makes me realize that sometimes ignorance is better, or pretending to be ignorant.
I don’t have to worry about whether there are people spying on me or stealing my personal information through my devices while I can do nothing about it.

The insecurity raised by this issue keeps bothering me when I open every single website. The little 🔒 sign, meaning “a safe website”, next to the URL on top of the browser is the biggest comfort I have ever gotten on Media.
I used to surf the Internet recklessly and do whatever I want.
And now I surf the Internet insecurely and do whatever I want.
