A decade ago social media was hailed as an organizing tool for pro-democracy rallies, giving voice to the voiceless. But it has also become a forum for conspiracy theories, disinformation and hate speech. President Donald Trump was recently banned from Twitter following his incitement of rioters, and his social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram were suspended. Correspondent Lee Cowan looks into the legality and implications of tech companies “de-platforming” a user – even a president.

Very seldom do we have the courage to place ourselves under the microscope for inspection

Keywords: culture, psychology

As humans we need to get better at our relationship with social media. It’s far too jejune to blame social media for how we behave. To do so would be to forfeit any free will & strip ourselves of agency. Instead of just having a singular spotlight on the responsibility of social media, why not rig up another spotlight and shine it on our own responsibility to be aware of how we behave & how it can be manipulated? No intelligent algorithm can work its magic without you taking first action, and continuing to take further action. Your attention can’t be monetised unless you wilfully give it up. We are the start point, but we are also the end point.

Once lying is acceptable, it becomes part of the system

It is shocking to hear people claim superior spirituality on the basis of falsehoods. I remember people who claimed they never watched television, but were lying. I remember people saying that they dressed a certain way because of spiritual conviction, but were lying. I remember moms boasting about the superior spirituality of their children, but they were lying. And, yes, they knew they were lying.
