Bobbie Johnson, Addicted? Not quite
Lots of buzz lately about Internet addiction being a mental illness. I found it interesting that South Korea and China are often mentioned as countries having problems with this particular addiction. Hmmmm….aren’t they also two countries that have been accused of Internet censorship? Promoting the dangers of IAD (Internet Addiction Disorder) might be a good way for the government to protect people for their own good. I love conspiracy theories.
