Great piece. Is it possible for the world to reverse the clock and go back to the daily in-person conversations which built rapport, defused conflict, and ultimately erased hatred? Too much fluff carries weight on social media, thanks to the tech platforms. NYC witnessed a candidate for mayor with over two million Twitter followers (Yang) get trounced by one with over thirty-six thousand (Adams)?
The people who make the world a better place often do it the hard way like ex-cop Eric Adams —- one handshake at a time. With the light now visible as we pass through the dark Covid-19 tunnel, can the world turn off the noise from online chatter and embrace the music from human interactions? Is it possible to unplug from our devices to increase human understanding? There’s a lot of hate in the world because the tech industry has enabled it.
