Ep. 24: Will Technology Make Us More Free?

Technology holds tremendous promise for human society, but it is inherently apathetic, apolitical, and amoral. All it's positive potential is determined ultimately by how we choose to utilize it. Many use social media to find new peers for noble social causes; others use social media to find peers within hate groups and other anti-social movements.
