Interconnectedness or Societal Control?

I had a thought this morning … has society’s unlimited access into each others lives become a source of societal control or a means to tolerance and understanding? What I mean is that we can “ Google ” a name and find out more than we ever wanted to know about a person. News organizations can report non-stop and analyze every detail of a person’s life ad nauseum. Is it a good thing that we are all so connected?

Today my boss “forced” me to go to the Emergency Room for an abscess on my foot. You see, I live in SW FL, and we have some nasty little boogers out here. I didn’t know if I was bitten by a bug, had an ingrown hair, or a flesh-eating staph infection. All I know is that my foot went from being a size 7 to a 10 in the past couple of days.
