Hey Bill! I have a question pertaining to an issue in the U.S. and it's one that we're all get sick of hearing.
Do you think social media - and perhaps the internet in general - has played a role in helping divide this country?
Instead of expanding knowledge and obtaining greater understandings of the world, many people seem to use it to
1) seek and spread information - including false information - confirming their existing biases and beliefs, and
2) converse and interact only with others who share their worldview
(these are things I'm guilty of doing myself)
Follow up q: What steps should we take to help bridge this social, cultural, economic, educational and regional divide?
