Internet junkies

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a
complete substitute for life.
- Andrew Brown

Most of us will read that and think how pitiful the lives of some people must be that they spend all of their free time on the internet instead of having a real life elsewhere.

However, who are we to determine how anyone else should spend their life? We have neither the right nor the privilege to do so.

Many of the people who judge others have lives that the others would consider wasteful or very restrictive. Should those who have made questionable life choices judge others?

Most people who judge others have themselves made poor life choices and want to make themselves feel better by putting someone else down.

An internet junkie has made a life choice that might be more fulfilling for himself than the lifestyle he previously had.

It may not be perfect, but neither are the choices we have made.
