Have you joined the SICA-International Village Community? An online community created by Subud members for Subud members who are interested in the many manifestations of creativity without having to give up one’s privacy and right mind for the profits of transnational social media monoliths. Consider joining this visionary project.

If you need more information on why Facebook and other social media giants are not interested in your well-being, see: a profile on Jaron Lanier, called by some “The Conscience of Silicon Valley.” From the article:

[His] “Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, which is as clear and definitive an account of the damage companies like Twitter and Facebook and Google do to society and to our individual psyches as you’ll ever read. The book felt relevant again right now, I said, in a way that made my bones actually vibrate. Lanier had been early to the idea that these platforms were addictive and even harmful—that their algorithms made people feel bad, divided them against one another, and actually changed who they were, in an insidious and threatening manner. That because of this, social media was in some ways “worse than cigarettes,” as Lanier put it at one point, ‘in that cigarettes don’t degrade you. They kill you, but you’re still you.'”
