AUTOCORRECT IS A VIOLATION OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT
Free speech is under assault, and autocorrect is the analytically artificially intelligent undertaker dragging us all toward the grave. It was fun as a calculator for spelling, when it alerted me of miscalculations of basic grammar. Now it’s gone too far.
English is a fantastic human language, but autocorrect is perverting it. There’s something pure in writing, in saying it the way you wanna say it with the added benefit of time and editing before letting anyone know what’s on your mind. And it can be done well, to the point of affecting human consciousness and will. It’s called the written word, and it was the dominant mode of effective communication for roughly the entire history of humanity.
Speaking is now the most powerful forum for word, and the power of writing has shifted from prose and narrative to personal communication.
Texting and social media are where the most words are now written. This would be fine, if it weren’t for the encroaching censorship on creativity that is auto correct.
Imagine the horror of realization following the moment of hitting send, when you notice your perfectly crafted joke or observation has been changed into a nonsensical lowbrow idiom. You can’t get that moment back.
The timing, the punchline, lost forever, consumed by the insatiable lust for micromanagement that is the autocorrect software.
Been there, done that. It’s time to take a stand. 1984 is so 1999, and I can’t take it anymore. Autocorrect is wrong half the time when you take into consideration the context of the situation. I’m spelling it incorrectly on purpose because I’ve taken on the role of what a hillbilly might say, adding to the fun. You aren’t adding value by correcting the redneck dictionary when that is the entire vibe of the good time. You aren’t human autocorrect, and are a much lesser form of consciousness. Nothing you do is worthy, you aren’t worthy.
Autocorrect is a violation of the first amendment.
