When it comes to politics, it’s surprisingly hard to find open-minded dialog on the web. Most people are shamefully one-sided, proving that better technology does not necessarily equate to better citizens. The Internet sites are havens where ranters can vent to their comrades and diss their opponents. We make no attempt to connect, or to empathize with each other. No temporary seize-fire is offered. It’s more fun to blast away at our enemies, whether they live in cyberspace or on the Arabian Peninsula.
It’s like we’re all playing cyber tug-of-war, each side pulling with all its energy without looking down to make sure they don’t step in dog shit while winning the pissing contest. Everyone’s desperate to show their allegiance.
Remind you of anything?
