Death Conspiracy

Death can typically bring on a number of emotions – hurt, remorse, anger, and regret- just to name a few.  In addition to this, there seems to be another emotion associated with particularly celebrity death. Suspicion.  One would think that it would be unheard of to fake a death.  Apparently, this notion is a mundane subject in the entertainment industry.

Death conspiracy has been a “possibility” in many celebrities deaths.   A few of the more popular ones are Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison, Anna Nicole Smith, and most recently, Michael Jackson.  All of the listed celebs are extremely popular, and this may have been a reason for all of them to fake their deaths.

Michael Jackson’s case stood out the most for me.  The main reason for this is because I had no clue until now that his death had speculations of being a hoax.  Jackson led a life filled with controversy, and it’s sad to see that this is still the case after his death.  Sad, but rather interesting.

As everyone knows, the  singer was addicted to drugs and this was taking a huge toll on his life.  Because of this, he had a live in doctor (Murray).  It is said that Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of medication that caused the untimely death of the pop icon right before he was set to do a comeback tour.

But now, after his death, many people (even his own family) believes there was more to his death than drug overdose.  Many say the reason for this was the way the media was constantly tearing Jackson down emotionally.  Apparently, this got to be too much for him and he planned out his own death to get away.  There are a number of evidence for this, but they all seem a bit vague.  For instance, the fact that on some legal documents Jackson’s middle name is Joe and other times it is Joseph has been mentioned.  Also, Jackson is said to have been in attendance at his own funeral, and also to have appeared in various places after his death disguised as some of his friends, and even a blonde woman.

Death conspiracy is frightening for me.  I can’t even fathom faking my own death, and it’s hard for me to believe anyone else would do such a thing.  On the contrary, I do believe that Jackson had a lot of deep rooted troubles.   But as far as his death being a conspiracy, I’m not so sure.

Addiction

These days, it is common for people to be obsessed or addicted to social media sites. The University of Chicago’s Booth School of Management conducted studies to prove the theory to be true.   The study discovered that more people are addicted to social networks than they are to your typical addictions.  By typical I mean crack, tobacco, marijuana, painkillers, or any other substance you may think of.  So just imagine, in today’s society people check their Facebook page more than they light a cigarette.  Says something about our generation, don’t you agree?

The study took a group of Germans, gave them all access to social media via Blackberry and inquired about what aspects they longed for throughout the day.  Aside from the obvious—sleep and food— Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and email accounts were at the top of the list.

For some, this may not make any sense.  You may ask, “How can someone possibly let social media control them psychologically?”  It is said that this is a result of cost and effect.   With social media you don’t have nearly the amount of health and monetary risks as you would with things like crack, tobacco, marijuana, painkillers, or any other substance you may think of.  This alone makes social media a better choice of addiction.  No monetary obligations? No health risks? Sounds like a plan to me!

The younger generation has a rather interesting opinion about the whole thing.  They would go as far as to say that social media is just as important as food, air, water, and shelter.  Is this a healthy way of thinking?  Either way, it’s the truth.  America’s, as well as many other countries, youth are addicted to social media.

I believe that social media isn’t all bad.  It is simply amazing that you can find and keep in contact with kindergarten pals, long lost friends, and distant family members.  Social media is what keeps everyone connected.  Of course I do honestly believe that we can survive without social media sites.  I’d even go as far as saying that social media sites are bad for you, just as anything else addictive.  Now, would many agree with this?  The first step to breaking an addiction is admitting you have that addiction, so probably not.
