Speech, slanted look |  Six working days a week – on mobile

oblique profile This text expresses the author’s personal opinions.

Don’t come here and say that young people these days lack the will to work! Here, the thumb is swiped across the screen almost around the clock. With curved necks, they face the future. As long as there is wifi, data on subscription, and electricity for the phone, most needs are covered. Life’s biggest fears aren’t nuclear war or cancer – they’re poor coverage and an “empty” battery! In a secondary school, Frederick Questad is a science teacher. One day in the new year, he finds out that the class must have a project on social media and various topics such as body stress, exercise, mental health, etc. It was then that Øiestad suggested that they reveal how many hours the pupils spend on social media each year. A week like TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram!

What’s revealed shows effort and enthusiasm through thumb-sweeping and a bent neck that there’s really no reason to press the “thumbs up” emoji for it. The average “workday” of thumb swiping and being a passive recipient of the content-free mites amounts to six hours and 29 minutes a day. in the middle! For every student!!! This corresponds to a full six working days in a week. If they’re on the job, the Norwegian Labor Inspectorate and the LO’s Summer Patrol will have their artillery full of legal clauses and juicy daily fines. One student was awake for about 60 hours a week. I hope this person never thinks about the “lost youth” thing.

The greatest “work effort” is put into TikTok. There’s the perpetual “masturbation” of videos – everything from innocent stuff like the latest in silicone and teeth whitening to homicide videos. Or, as one of the students wrote when asked what made the strongest impression recently: “A man cut off his wife’s head, and walked holding her head.” In other words, really constructive stuff. So young people and children can watch it in a country that is heavily controlled by laws, regulations and orders. It’s honestly unbelievable.

The problem is that the authorities don’t have the least to say. TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram are absolutely impossible to manage — the latter two are also some horrible time wasters along with “old thing” Facebook. There is no global regulation. When there is no filter or rules, Norwegian children and youth can therefore look at “the man who sprayed a muzzle on the wall with his gun in front of his dog and son,” as another student put it. The owners of these media are making a fortune and shouting in full swing about whether the brains of our children and youth are being “hardened” by beheadings and suicides with guns. If someone thinks this is a good thing, they should seek help from a psychiatrist immediately.

The combination of the time spent on this, and the horrific content set in this apocalyptic world that has room for maximum perversion, is scary. This must make us collectively very anxious. In a country where the Broadcasting Board has to deal with a complaint because a woman showed her boobs on TV, there should be a cross of ideas that our youth could be emotionally raped by TikTok without anyone being held responsible. Note: It’s been a long time since Trond Wiggo Torgersen made big waves in the kingdom when he talked about the sperm’s battle to get to the egg first on NRK’s ​​show “The Body.”
