The ideal promise of world community through the global Internet & social media sites has become a dystopian reality of digital tribes warring with one another. Using Internet more than 5 hours per day (and the average US teenager is on 9 hours per day) has been linked to increased suicide and depression rates.
There’s a cure for the anti-social spiral articulated by one of the heroes of humanity, Martin Luther King Jr. It takes courageous action of returning spiteful words & deeds with gentle kindness.
Technology is just a tool; it takes a revolution of the heart to change the human condition.
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”
From MLK Jr. “Strength to Love”
