In spirited defense of Instagram

“Spreading messages dilutes them. Even understanding them is a compromise. The language kills itself, expires inside its host. Language acts as an acid over its message. If you no longer care about an idea or a feeling, put it into language. That will certainly be the last of it, a fitting end. Language is another name for coffin.”
Ben Marcus, The Flame Alphabet
