The breakdown of trust

2020-06-12

The breakdown of trust has been a terrible thing to watch. You see it in conspiracy theories and everywhere on the internet and aimed at virtually every kind of media and now everyone’s pointing it at each other. Nobody trusts anybody, and not surprisingly the result is chaos. And it’s mostly the internet’s fault.

We need to find a way to foster trust on the internet. I think if we can figure that out, everything else will start to get better. But it’s a tall order. The internet is a place where you shouldn’t trust anybody, almost by definition.

I don’t have any good ideas. Do you? How can we get started?
