The End of the World, Last Confessions, Video Epitaphs and some very interesting Free Speech Issues
You know you are going to have to write something about the End of the World, so here are some thoughts about recording your last confessions, just in case the world really does end on December 21, 2012. If you are reading this after that date, Amen.
....AND SOME VERY INTERESTING FREE SPEECH ISSUES
Since the world might come crashing to an end on December 21st, it may be time for people to start recording their doomsday confessions right now. And what would you say for your video epitaph if you knew you were going to check out so soon?
Would you say sweet things to loved ones? Would you say things you never had the chance to say nor never had the guts to say? Would it finally be time to make amends? Would you put forth some intimate, secret confessions in your final video...
and would it be truth or lies?
And if, perchance, the world doesn’t end on December 21st, people could save their recordings for use in a video tombstone for when they finally do leave this world.
Yessiree, “There’s no business like show business,” even from beyond the grave!
And in addition to singing songs and saying sweet things to loved ones in these video epitaphs, we might also hear some very deep, dark, secret confessions from these video messages, and some of those secret confessions might also create some very interesting Free Speech issues...because who knows people might say for their final messages from their video tombstone...and will it be truth or lies?
*What if someone confesses to a crime or makes an incrimination?
*What if they say something that’s true or untrue or not so nice about you?
*What if they say something that causes emotional stress?
*What if they say something anti-governmental?
*How can you pull the plug and whom can you sue?
*Worse yet, how can you collect?
Video tombstones will also have a tremendous impact on many other aspects of society:
*Video tombstones will change the way we look at life and death.
*Video Tombstones will change the way that history is told.
*Video Tombstone will create some major changes in estate law
*and Video Tombstones will also create a whole new genre of storytelling, with all kinds of stories being told through video tombstones...to which I submit...a book called “Cemetery of Lies.”
“Cemetery of Lies” is a collection of intimate, secret confessions, as told from beyond the grave, through video tombstones. You can read more about Cemetery of Lies at www.barrows.com/
