Social Realism developed as a reaction against idealism and the exaggerated ego encouraged by Romanticism. Consequences of the Industrial Revolution became apparent; urban centers grew, slums proliferated on a new scale, contrasting with the display of wealth of the upper classes.
History is on course to repeat itself, but in a new age.
Social Realisms in the physical world have now manifested themselves within the Social Media World. As with the Industrial Revolution, the Social Media Revolution has encouraged an exaggerated ego by the informational upper class. A divide is growing between those who control the information on the established Social Media sites. The Social Media establishment has given birth to the informational caste system.
Like many before me, I seek to take the power from those who have it, and distribute it equally to those who don’t.
A new era is on the horizon. A social media movement is beginning.
Like all revolutions, change is inevitable.
