happy equinox, y'all

i disagree with the notion that the internet is destroying society. i think that as we learn to talk to people outside our own groups, the groupthink loses hold, and we must depend more on an internal moral compass. i think that this will create a less obedient, but more compassionate society. and isn't that what the world needs right about now, people who judge right and wrong not on what the group says, but on what their hearts say is right?

as we gain access to more and more information, we will become empowered and start making decisions for ourselves that previously we had left up to the experts. experts who, we now know, were paid to represent corporate interests, rather than our own best interests.

how can that be a bad thing?
