Empowering People...

The sad part is, people accept how the internet works today as a natural fact. Like the weather or the fact that time passes.

It’s important to keep in mind though, the internet is a man-made place/ environment/ ecosystem. The internet is a cultural byproduct. Culture (man-made) is the opposite of what is natural (the weather).

Culture can be changed, molded, and perceived differently precisely because, well, we made it. A simple example of the fickle nature of culture? Look to any fashion trend throughout the years and you will get the idea.

On a more serious note, another example is with the civil rights movement and how people of different backgrounds are treated by society. We can all agree it has, as a whole, changed for the better. But the change did not come about through humans evolving a third eyeball or something (nature). The change came from challenging pre-conceived notions of what it means to be human. {ijseo_redirect id=316}, not our nature.
